In about three months our family of three, which we’ve been accustomed to for almost three years, will become a family of four. Life as we know it will never be the same.
We’ve been so blessed with Elodie. She has such a sweet soul and is the most affectionate child I’ve ever met. She is constantly giving kisses, requesting cuddles and making sure her “baby brother” is happy in momma’s belly. I have no doubt that she will be an amazing big sister.
Our lives over the past (almost) three years, have been a whirlwind, and having a newborn/baby around seems like such a distant memory. This child is so grown-up & independent, it’s scary sometimes. I know describing life with a kiddo as “easy,” might seem silly, but that’s how I feel these days. She’s at a perfect age. Do we even remember how to parent a newborn?
I am absolutely loving having this summer off to spend time with her, while it’s just the three of us. I’m trying to soak up and enjoy every second of it.
I know I will love the boy just as much as I love sweet Elodie, but it’s just crazy to think about how things are going to change. And this change is right around the corner.
I really have no point to make; these are just a few things I’ve been thinking about quite a bit lately. I cannot wait for September.
I cannot wait to see how Elodie jumps into her new role of big sissy. I cannot wait to parent a little boy. I cannot wait to be Watson: Party of 4.
Three more months until my due date. Three months until our family of three adds a new member.
Are you as excited to meet this little guy as I am?
