To all of you out there who don't have kids yet I apologize because this post is gonna be a little bit "Mommy Mushy."
Lately my feelings towards baby number two have grown more and more intense. When I look at Jack and think of the miracle that he is I get so excited to meet this little nugget. I'm not gonna lie, for a while I was happy in general about the pregnancy but more terrified about the idea of having two! Now I just feel like there is no need in stressing out over that because it's gonna happen. I mean, it's inevitable right?! So why worry?!
We were at the beach this weekend and Jack was being cute because to me, he always is, and I started feeling such strong feelings of love. Let me explain it like this...when Michael and I got married it felt like my heart was completely full with the love I had for him. Then Jack was born and I swear a new chamber grew and filled up with love because I had never loved like that before! Last Sunday at the beach, for the first time I felt a little sprout of the next heart chamber that will be filled when this baby comes. It was so exciting and so calming at the same time. Not to get all churchy on you on top of all this mushy love stuff but honestly, how could anyone want to do anything else than have a family? I know that is a blanket statement and it's unfair because there are plenty of women who don't have such a strong maternal instinct and bla bla bla...but seriously, kids are the best crying, poop covered, demanding, exhausting, squishy, picky fun things ever. Whew! I guess I am done. Here are a couple pics of Jack when he was just a couple of days old, lumpy head and everything!
Such a yummy little burrito!
This was the only position he would sleep in for longer than 10 minutes. Exhausting for us, comfy for him. I sure am glad that's over!
Can you believe how much he looks like his Daddy?! ;)
