I think we are as ready as you can be at this point! Just some last minute washing of things and organizing, but overall things are fairly ready. Work is done until I go back in 4 weeks, and all outside commitments are also all wrapped up!
I am so very excited to meet this little (I should say BIG) boy! I am ready to see how it is to feed, snuggle, change, love one newborn at a time :) My biggest fears are feeling torn with my time, attention, and love between all 3 kids. I know God gives you what you can handle, so I guess he is pretty confident that I can juggle this all with some sort of grace and humility. I will just have to wait and see.
The girls somewhat know that something is going on. The kiss and pat the "baby" in my belly. They place their baby-dolls int he swing and push the "baby" in the swing. They even have been taking the baby-dolls to bed, covering them up and sleeping right by them in their beds. Which all seemed oh, so encouraging until I help my neighbors newborn yesterday and Carley lost it big time! I guess we will see how they deal very soon!
More to come soon!
