To say the birth of my daughter hasn’t been one of the biggest highlights of my life would be a complete lie. Anyone would know that. I over-picture, over-talk about, over-love my little girl. She has been an absolute joy to raise these last 2.5 years. We knew we wanted more than one child, so when we were ready we tried for number 2. Needless to say, we were successful!
This pregnancy has been completely different from the first. Morning sickness, discomfort, insomnia, sciatic pain…all while still working full time and raising a toddler. But one thing has remained constant; the questioning of what’s to come. The transition for our family, for little M, who the world revolves around, and the question a lot of mom’s going from one to two may have: how can I love another child as much as I have loved the first?
Little M is just so special. She brings joy to all she meets, greets every stranger, throws tantrums like you wouldn’t believe, is super witty and expressive, loves to “shake it”, sing, make goofy faces and give a hug and kiss until “mmkay, all done”. She is smart, playful, stubborn, and a sponge.
I do worry about how she will be as a big sister. I pray over the bond her and little G will have. I pray over her heart and mind being open and understanding right off the bat with this transition. I pray over our family as we prepare financially. And I pray over little G that he is a calm, chill guy who will just fit right in with the crew. I pray over my husband as he takes on a lot of responsibility for our family – that God blesses him in his career and provides for our family as he has so done in the past.
I am looking forward to all the good times that are coming. I am praying for strength and patience during all the hard days that are coming. I am saying ‘thank you’ for all the blessings we have and are given daily.
