Wow, time really flies.
Most of the time, I find it extremely hard to believe that Savannah will be joining our family any day now. Then, I look down at my big ol’ belly or feel a kick or try to bend over or … and I remember just how close she really is.
I didn’t realize how much preparing I would need to do for a second child. And, when I say preparing, I don’t necessarily mean buying the diapers or installing the infant car seat or even packing my hospital bag. All those things are mostly done. Key word: mostly.
I mean the emotional and mental preparation, which has proven to be somewhat difficult for me.
I have to admit…I have mixed feelings over choosing to add a second child into our happy little family. I love things the way they are. I love the relationship I have with Jordan and am, honestly, a bit worried that our relationship will never be the same once Savannah joins us.
Now, I also think Jordan is going to absolutely love being a big sister. She already knows where Savannah’s room is, that Savannah is in my belly and that she has different toys than her own. But, what she doesn’t yet understand is how different life will be with a second baby taking mommy’s time. How could she? I don’t even understand this yet! How will this affect her, I wonder?
Only time will tell. If Savannah is anything like Jordan, life will only get better with her being around.
Other than that, it seems we are pretty much ready to bring a newborn baby home from the hospital. It’s really amazing how much you do and don’t remember from the first time!
I will keep you updated with any news. As for this ‘lil blog-’o-mine, I already have posts planned for when I’m in the hospital and for the first week back home so there shouldn’t be any gaps. Key word: shouldn’t.
Now, we wait for Savannah!
