I have been thinking recently how my toddler will react to being a big brother and sharing the spotlight. I hope he loves his little sister and will protect her as they grow up. I'm sure every mom goes through these feelings as she's preparing to have her 2nd child, but I hope I will be able to give them the same amount of love and attention that they deserve. It's hard to imagine loving another child as much as I love and adore Hunter, but I know it's possible.
February 10th will be 3 months exactly from my projected c-section date...wait wha?! Seriously?! I can't wait to see my daughter's face for the 1st time and to hear her cry. I can't wait to count her fingers and toes and to smell her new baby smell. I can't wait to snuggle her body against mine. I can't wait to be a family of 4 and be complete. I can't wait to watch her and Hunter grow as siblings and as individuals. I'm so in love with my baby girl, it's unreal to have such a strong connection with a human being I have never met.
I'm so thankful for Daniel. He takes care of me when I'm a hormonal mess. :D He's the best father I could have ever asked for my kids. I'm thankful for Hunter. He has taught me so many life lessons and continues to do so every single day. I'm thankful for my family and friends. I know that they would be there for me in a second and would do anything to help me out when I'm in need. I'm thankful for Toby. He cuddles with me at the end of the day and lets me know that he'll always be my best furry friend. I'm thankful for our beautiful home and our jobs. In this economy, we are so very blessed to own our home and have stable jobs that are able to provide above and beyond all our necessities. I'll stop now, don't want to bore people, but some days I just need to relax, take a deep breath and realize all the things that bless my life. <3
5 days til our overnight bed and breakfast date! Can't wait!!
