We're expecting baby #2 in late July.
I thought a change like this would throw me into a spin about things we need and don't have. But I've managed to stay firmly in this spot, this here and now. I'm happy to enjoy the time and place we're in, to make space for a new member of our family within the home and life that we have.
I know that, just like the first time around, things will change in ways we can't anticipate- in hard ways and awesome ways.
And, while we wait, we get the pleasure of our almost-3-year-old's commentary on the whole "baby in mommy's belly" business. Some recent gems:
- "Is that lump right there the baby?" (pointing to my expanding midsection)
- "I can help with a lot of things, but I can't help get that baby out of you."
- "I'll take care of the baby when mommy and daddy go out. I'll give her a bottle and put her to bed."
