5:45 on Monday morning. We’ll be leaving for the hospital in a few minutes! Yay! Iwent to bed early last night(complements of Ambien), and it was so worth it! Because now I’m wide awake and really ready for today!
With my other pregnancies, I was surprized at how quickly it all went. This time has been different. I guess because I was so sick, and because we had so many major life changes during this pregnancy, and I had the misscarriage just last year….well, it feels like this pregnancy has lasted a long, long time. And I’m more ready this time(I think! 🙂 ).
Emmie woke up at somepoint last night and just wanted me to hold her. We’ve been talking to her about the new baby, and that the new baby is coming and all that jazz. But I think it’s just really now starting to sink in. With my friends Jesse and Noelle here to keep her and Tucker, she knows something big is up. In some ways I’m sad that she won’t be “the baby” anymore. But it’ll be good for her. And I think she’ll take well to her Big Sister role. She’s quite the little mommy with her toys. She even changes their diapers! 🙂 Eventhough I might not be brave enough to let a 2 year old change a diaper, it’s nice to know that she’s willing to help. But last night, she just wanted her mommy to hold and cuddle her. She just wanted to be the baby a little bit longer…and I wanted her to be, too, if I’m honest with myself. So she stayed in my bed for a long time last night. Until her breaths were slow and even, and I was sure she was sound asleep. And as I went in to kiss her this morning, I was surprized at just how big she looks.
Tucker…is just Tucker. He doesn’t seem to care one way or another that there’s a new baby coming. I think he gets it, but I think it’s a “been-there-done-that” kind of thing for him. I hope he’ll be excited when he meets the new baby.
Well, I’m going to be late if I don’t stop typing. The hospital doesn’t have Wi-Fi, but I hope Marshall will be able to update you all sometime today or tomorrow. Otherwise, check facebook! 🙂
