As I Wait for My Second Child to Arrive…

H and Mommy

I am mixed with emotions. I am excited, I am nervous, and I am sad.

We have long wished for and hoped for another baby, especially after our miscarriage last year and we are going to meet our little girl very soon (hopefully very soon).

But it has also been weighing on my mind that these are the last house/days of just having H all to ourselves and us all to him. I’m sad for him in a way, but very excited to see what kind of big brother he will be.

Our lives will change again, for the better I know, but I’m cherishing these last few hours/days with just him. Trying to soak in every cuddle, every “mommy,” everything. I know it is far from the last time any of these things will happen, but it will be the last time they happen with just him and us. We have been so blessed (and so as he) to have him to ourselves for almost four years (time has gone by so fast). I want him to feel just as special as he has every day since he came into our lives and for him to know that he is just as loved.

For those of you out there who have had a second or third child, what special things did you do before you had your other children?
