Friday marks the start of the last full month of this pregnancy and I'm just overly amazed at how quickly this time has gone.
I'm trying to soak up my Mia time as best as I can. I'm overwhelmed with emotion when I think about the fact that she is our only for just a short while longer. It does make me sad, as she is my everything. I struggle, as many parents do, with how I will ever be able to imagine love any greater than what we have for Mia. How is that humanly possible? I know that it is. I don't question it. We're just not there yet, so until I experience it I will struggle with that.
My daughter's heart is growing by the day and I do feel strongly that it's all in preparation for her sister to arrive. She's making more room in her already amazingly sweet heart for her little sister. She loves spending time in her room and indeed helped Daddy put up the crib yesterday. She wants to do all things and help with all things related to her sister's upcoming arrival.
Even more so, she is always helping me. Last night, I lied in bed watching the SAG's while she and Hubs put up the crib. She came and checked on me often to make sure I was "ok." She tucked me in 100 times, she gave me 403 kisses and told me she loved me more than I could ever count. Does it get any better than that? She's listening, helping out with chores, doing all the things we've been trying. We even managed to give up the binky this weekend.
We're in such a good place, our little family. It's a great feeling, especially leading into the arrival of our newest family member.
My heart is full and that's a really good thing.
I needed to feel like this. I needed this past weekend to get to a place where I felt content and ready.
I wasn't there two weeks ago, but I'm there today.
We have a little less than 7 weeks to go until Baby W #2's arrival.
We're excited to meet her and we're excited for our next chapter.
Have a great week!
