Hello, Summer

As the final weeks of this pregnancy are winding down, we are trying to savor the time as a family of three.

The little guy got the flu or some other bad virus the last week of school, and then Harper got it even worse. I ended up with a much milder version that only lasted a couple of days rather than a couple of weeks like Harper (thank God!). It really slowed us down and interrupted my nesting. There are so many things I would like to get done before the baby arrives, but I’m trying to rest or at least sit down when my body tells me to, which is often. All the stuff on my to-do list will eventually get done. Hopefully.

T is so excited about having a brother. Of course, he has no idea how much things are going to change. I’m not too worried, though. He is so sweet and thoughtful, and I know he will adjust to being a big brother instead of an only child. He will still get plenty of attention and love. We will all be adjusting for a while.

Everyone says that you suddenly realize how big your toddler is when the next baby is born, but I’m already there. He is getting so big, and just like all the cliches, it has happened so fast. I’m so glad that we haven’t taken any of the stages for granted. He isn’t perfect, but he is so easy to love. I know his brother will be, too.

I hope your summer is filled with some warm evenings and cool water!

–Natalie
