I had a couple of free Maddie days which she spent at her Manna's house (Stephen's mom) and spent the majority of the days going through boxes of baby clothes....boxes and boxes and boxes.....sorting out what I could use for this baby regardless of gender, then sorting everything else by size. Exciting right?!? Anyway, I realized that parenting a toddler on top of growing and carrying a human inside of me is what really gets my energy. I look forward to the days when I can have both my babies on the outside and hopefully have the physical energy to make it through each day without wanting to cry.
On that same note I'm so nervous.....so nervous that I won't be able to give to both of my babies as much as I want. My sweet Maddie has this crazy energy that we can barely keep up with as it is and she loves to be the center of the world, for everyone. How do I make sure she doesn't go without but still give this new baby as much love and attention as I've given her? I know it's the question that so many mama's ask themselves and it just work itself out....but it's hard simply wondering.
This post is really just a bunch of personal thoughts but I wanted to get it out. Another post I want to write is all the things about my Maddie that I notice right now. Things that no one really cares about, I'm sure, except myself. I could write for days and new things would come up all the time......like how today she put her arm around the crying kitty, who wanted to go outside and play, and told her to zip it. My girl, a bossy boss already!
A few belly shots since I haven't shared since week 24. Yikes!
