This Time Next Week....

Katherine Marie will be here! I can't believe it's so close and yet it seems like this week is going to drag by. It seems like there is still so much to do but I know that there is not much we NEED for a newborn baby.

We also want to take this last week and spend as much time with Michael as possible. I know that this is going to be a huge adjustment for him and I want it to go as smoothly as it can. In time, he will love and protect his baby sister but I expect for there to be a good bit of jealousy. He is such a sweet and loving boy and as happy as I am to be giving him a baby sister, I don't want him to feel cheated.

We are very blessed to have a son and a daughter on the way and I know that everything will work itself out. It's just hard sometimes to imagine going from a family of 3 to a family of 4 and making sure everyone is happy. I feel like I have been so much more emotional during this pregnancy, but maybe that's because I am already a mother and know what a wonderful, life-changing experience having a child is! I wouldn't trade it for the world.

How exciting! I know it's going to be a big change, but young children seem to adjust pretty quickly to new situations. But I do know how you feel because I've already started worrying how Aiden is going to handle being a big brother and that's not happening until September!

Poor Katie, I can just imagine Michael's reaction the first time she brings home a boy. It will be about as bad as Todd's.

You are so right, def. take time out to spend with Michael now and to make him feel special before the baby arrives :) Can't wait!
