16 weeks

 Even though I know this new baby is going to bring even more joy into our lives, I can't help but feel a little sad that my boy's world is going to be rocked. I think he'll be a great big brother, and that he'll enjoy a lot of it, but the days of having all of Mom and Dad's attention are almost gone. He'll never remember what it was like to be an only child. To have our whole world revolve around only him. To be the only one able to call me Mom. 

But he'll always be the first.

In spite of my worries for Logan (should I be worried?), the pregnancy marches on and it gets more exciting the closer it gets. Here I am at 16 weeks and feeling a ton better now that the sickness and tiredness has abated.
March 7th we get to see our little bean again and find out if it's healthy and what the gender is. So excited for baby shopping!


  1. I remember having those exact thoughts in the weeks and days leading up to McKay's birth. I also had the fear that because I had had that time with Ty first, that I would always secretly love him the most. Amazingly, though, it's totally true what they say--you CAN love two children the exact same amount, and in totally different ways. It will be great. And Logan is little enough that he will be resilient and adjust quickly, I think. Just make sure you still have some special one-on-one time with just him still, too.

  2. I bawled my eyes out before going in to have P. I think your worries are totally normal. And a few weeks after Pen was born, Reggie told us we didnt love him anymore. Ripped my heart in two. We told him we loved him and we loved Penny, and somehow that satisfied him. The beginning is crazy, but everyone settles into it and life is all rosy again!

    You look adorable!

  3. You look cute! Our babies are going to be so close in age, I'm excited!

  4. I felt the exact same way. I cried buckets when I went into labor with Luke because I felt so bad for Zoe. Sooo normal. But it is so great now & I wouldn't change it for the world! Even though those two are fighting as we speak.... :/
