Now that the secret's out, I can finally talk about my pregnancy and my thoughts and concerns. This time around feels so different. Maybe it's because I feel like I just had Parker, it seems so weird that I'm doing it all over again so soon! I am so excited though that Parker is going to have a brother or sister to play with. I've found myself worrying about Parker getting jealous of my attention and not wanting me to have another baby. But then I watch how good he plays with Ava and other children and how much he loves babies. I am reading Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child right now and there is a picture of a baby on the front cover. Parker crawled up to the book, squeeled, and gave the baby a kiss. Right then, I knew that I had nothing to worry about. I know that it will probably be challenging learning to balance two children instead of one at first. But I can't wait to welcome our new baby into our home. Steve and I were thrilled when we saw our baby in the last ultra sound on Tuesday. We could even see its little fingers and cute little perfect feet! Made everything seem so much more real!
I'm excited for the day when get to see Parker playing with his sibling and they can entertain each other like this!
P.S. Parker is officially walking (well he doesn't walk everywhere yet but he is definitely walking a lot more now!) And-- he figured out how to open doors... let's just say that I've been a little busy lately! :) Bring on baby #2! I think I can handle this!! :)
