Lately I've been feeling you swimming around inside of me a LOT! Your dad reminded me yesterday that your big sister Charlotte used to kick the iPad when I had it resting on my belly. I giggled, remembering those days...
And then. Just now. You did the EXACT same thing!
It's so fun, imagining the two of you playing together, growing up close in age, probably sharing a room. Arguing, and sharing, and learning, and teaching, and arguing some more, and loving, and talking, and laughing.
Today was a hard day. It was 85 degrees outside, and we had to leave for our home inspection, and I had another little guy to watch, in addition to your sister. And I broke a huge glass container. And I cried on your daddy's chest while Charlotte cried in her crib at bedtime. And I was tired and overwhelmed and worried.
These hard days happen, little one. They happened while I was pregnant the last time, and they happened when Charlotte was a newborn. And of course, they happened when I was single, and engaged, and a newly wed.
And these hard days will come again.
Those are the things on my mind, my darling child. I love you and I can't wait to meet you.
