I cried the first time I put Andrew to bed after Caroline was born. I cried for the time I hadn’t had to spend with him. How it was hard for me to rock him to sleep when I was worried about the baby waking up hungry at any minute, how it had just been him for 2.5 yrs and how his life was suddenly so different. And Andrew just said, “it’s okay mommy.” And it totally was! He adjusted so quickly and he LOVES Caroline to pieces. I know Noah will feel the same way about his baby brother!
Love this post. That’s the right way to think about it, enjoy these last few days/hours/moments with just your family of 3. Life, for all of you, is about to change. Yes, it will be amazing and wonderful and hectic and trying, but so so worth it.
I love this post, Courtney. You’re right. Life will totally change for Noah. It will be beautiful and awesome and likely trying at times. Sometimes it is good and important to just live in the space we are in. That is a good reminder for all of us – not just Moms on the verge of having babies!
I pray that the last few minutes/hours/days before Jonah comes allow you and Noah to create some beautiful memories! xo
That’s the right way to go about it- enjoying the last few days you have as just Mama and #1, and not dwelling too much on when Jonah is coming. Because come he will and sooner than you think, and then 3 becomes 4! 🙂
