Our fourth baby is due on Thanksgiving this year. That’s just 14 days away. Yeah, just 14 days! As with all things baby, there is a lot of excitement, anxiety and complete unknowns.
I’ve been laying pretty low recently, just wrapping things up from the fall and wedding season and basically just trying to prepare myself and my house for the arrival of our final family member.
Each person in our family is preparing themselves for her arrival in their own way. Asa and Finley have been such a joy this pregnancy because they understand the concept and know what a new baby will be. I have gotten so much enjoyment from seeing them feel the baby’s movements and sharing the development process with them.
Atticus refers to all things baby as “baby sister”. Some days he asks where “baby sister” is and other days he proclaims that he “doesn’t want baby sister”. I know he will love her but it will be quite a change for him.
My Mom and I snapped a few pictures of the boys with my belly this weekend. Their hands are my favorite, especially because you can see the marker on Finley’s fingers.
I grabbed this one looking down at them all.
She will be here before we know it and for now we are just savoring the unknowns and dreaming about what it will be like to have another little one, a girl in our home!
I will be sure to keep you posted!
