I started this morning as usual: Heard B making noises in his room so I looked at our monitor and there he was, sitting in his toddler bed waiting anxiously for me to come in and get him. As usual, I walk in and he says "Hi" and "Chair" as he points to his rocking chair. I sit in the rocking chair and he brings me his 2 blankets, one by one. He then lifts his arms for me to pick him up. I place him beside me in the chair, since my belly is sooo huge, and we rock back and forth for a while as he plays with his stuffed monkey and continues to suck on his paci. Sometimes we sing songs, sometimes we read a book, and sometimes we just sit there and rock back and forth in silence. This has been the usual morning routine for some time and today I got very emotional. Maybe it's just my prego hormones kicking in or maybe it's because it really hit me this morning that as of tomorrow I will be a mommy of 2. I pray that B adjusts well and I pray that Joel and I can adjust well also.
So far, everything is scheduled to go as planned tomorrow morning at 7:00am, March 30. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!
So...this is officially the last post as a family of 3. Next post... Family of 4!!!
