If I’m being honest, I’m a lot more excited to meet this baby than I was when pregnant with Isaiah. Now I know how it feels to cuddle your baby close, skin to skin, breathing in their sweet, soft scent, and hear their tiny noises. I know what it’s like to fall in love with your child, and be amazed at every little thing they do.
Of course, the not-so-sweet reality comes along with it…the reality of a drug-free labor and delivery, the reality of round the clock feedings and diaper changes, and the reality of little sleep. For those reasons (and more), along with the addition of a toddler this time around, I entered this pregnancy with a little less excitement than the first…if I’m still being honest. But completely grateful and happy, yes. Now we’re coming ever nearer to the due date, and I just want to meet this little one. I can’t wait to know if Isaiah have a little brother or little sister. And this time around, we’ll be settled in our house, and not selling/showing our condo and building/packing/moving with a newborn!
Life is still busy, of course, and at 37 weeks along, I’m feeling the pressure to be ready. One more shoot and I’ll be wrapping up work until June, and then it’s time to nest! Nest! Nest! And get in all the one-on-one snuggles with my first born…who will still always be my baby.
37 weeks at Easter…and butterfly kisses from my sweet boy…
