I'm getting all sentimental. In addition to preparing for our sweet little baby girl (who will be born sometime during the week of January 26-31, we just need to schedule the surgery), I also have been preparing myself for losing my precious one on one time that I have with Christian.
I can't even begin to describe how blessed I feel that I had the opportunity to stay at home with Christian. While it has been extremely challenging at times, especially with juggling therapy and doctor appointments on top of a typical toddler attitude, I wouldn't have traded my time with my guy for anything else. We have had so much fun together, just the two of us. He's been my little buddy, always at my side, always making me laugh, and always, always, ALWAYS keeping me on my toes. I almost feel like this time right now is bittersweet, as if I know that my days of just the two of us are numbered as I anxiously await the arrival of our baby girl.
When our little girl arrives, I know that things will change. I won't be able to immediately respond to Christian's needs. Our quiet mornings together will be days of the past. Our routine will change, but I know it will be for the better. I am excited for Christian to have a sibling. I'm thrilled to have a daughter. I just know that I will miss my Mommy and Christian time that has become the center of my life.
