Just keep in mind ...... just over a month till Buckeye Football!!!!!
Yay Lisa! I have so much faith in your strength, I know you are going to be amazing!
I loved reading your intro and how cool is it to have so many July '06 mamas following you?!
I'm wondering how you're preparing Toby for the arrival? Where will he be for the birth?
Traveling life's highway with my love and partner, Bruce,
and Snacky, my sunshine boy.
Sweet angels in our hearts 6/09 & 9/10. I will always carry you.
It's really hard to get Toby ready for the baby. I think that he really isn't developmentally ready to understand about a new baby brother/sister. He calls my bump baby. We have read lots of books about new baby brothers/sisters, but I don't really think conceptually he is "there". IFYKWIM??
He will be at home for the birth. I have to have a hospital birth. Our insurance doesn't cover home birth. My MIL will watch him. I am wishing more and more that I didn't have to go to a hospital.
Great intro Lisa! I'm so happy to follow your journey. It sounds like you are doing great. I too don't think Parker understands about the baby, he says baby and kisses my belly and likes little babies when we see them, but I think he has no clue about the baby coming to live with us! He is such a mama's boy too, so I really worry about that.
I think they understand more then we think they do. Eathan was 2y 3m when Addie was born. He called my tummy sister and we read books. The day she was born he became in instant big brother. He is so in love with her and her with him. They are the best of friends and he is so protective of her. Wherever she is, he is. If he can't see her right away he asks where she is. If she cries he will shhhh her and try to comfort her till I get there. It's amazing. I was so worried about it too.
