I am due in a few short weeks (if not sooner) with baby number two . These are maternity photos I took at the beach a few weeks ago. These photos will be some of the last we take as a family of three. Soon there will be four.
Some days it feels like time has flown by since the birth of Nolan, and others it seems like it was long ago. Either way I am grateful to get to stay home with him, and I cherish the time we’ve had together, especially as him being the only child. His world is about to change, as is all of ours. It seems like it has been the three of us for so long. We brought him home to our first house in Findlay, OH. We made this move to Texas, just the three of us. We share a special bond, that only those who live far from extended family would understand. Sometimes it feels like it is the three of us against the world, taking on this new life together. Adding one more to the tribe can only make it better, right?
I am feeling so many mix of emotions this time around. The anticipation of waiting on a new baby is still the same, but some others are different. At first there was excitement that we are bringing an addition to our family and into the world. Then there was guilt; guilt that I was taking my sole time away from my first born too soon. Feelings of should we have waited a little longer? Nervousness; about how I will handle two instead of one; how will I juggle my time between the two? And again excitement, because in the end I know this will be an awesome thing, and our family will feel even more complete. My heart is already full, but I know there will always be room for more. But for now I am savoring this time; just the three of us.
