This summer has been busy with packing, moving, and traveling and on top of it all... we are going to have a baby!
We're very excited. It's a girl and she is due October 22. (Maddie is SURE she's going to have brown hair.)
Maddie and Lyndon are thrilled. They're excited to have a little sister and talk about her all the time.
The pregnancy has been going really well. However, it's been 5 years since I've been pregnant and I forgot about things like:-a constant sick feeling for the first 4 months (It's all over now though!!!)
-taking lots more trips to the bathroom
-how uncomfortable it is once she starts growing up into my rib cage
-my lack of energy
-and a constant shortness of breath!
(any advice on how to gain more energy or stop the shortness of breath?)
But the sweet miracles far outweigh all of the little annoyances. Miracles like:-feeling her move
-letting Jonathon and the kids feel her move
-having a connection with her even before we meet
-and getting short glimpses of our future family of 5!
We are so blessed have her.
I was, of course, very excited when each of my kids were born but I have to admit with each of them came some worries. Because Maddie was our first she came with the worry of a new Mom. The worry that I don't know what I'm doing and am I doing this right. And then when Lyndon was born Maddie was only 18 months old so he came with the worry of do I have the stamina to do this and how am I going to be able to be a good Mom to 2 babies so close together.
But with this baby I don't have any worries. I'm now a veteran Mom and Maddie and Lyndon will both be in school in the Fall. I'm excited to spend my days with her and not let fear or worry taint any part of that.
So be on the look out for LOTS and LOTS (did I mention LOTS?) of baby pictures soon to come. I'm afraid this little angel won't have a moment of her life that won't be documented. lucky little thing.
Also, stay tuned for all of our traveling pictures to come very shortly. This summer has been a whirl wind of events, people, and places and I've barely found time to sit sit down in front of my computer. But I've been slowly going through the pictures and I have lots I'm excited to share with you.
I hope you are also having a great summer! Are you taking lots of pictures?
