Getting anxious...

So I am sitting here and for some reason just thought about holding and kissing on Kendahl. I cannot wait for her to get here. I cannot wait for her to meet her daddy and her big brother. Kai has been talking about her more and thinks he has a baby in his belly too. He tries to give baby Kendahl stuff by lifting his shirt and putting it on his belly. I know he will make a great big brother.

Maybe it is hormones but lately I have been hugging and kissing Kai more. I just can't believe how much he has grown and how much he can do now. I just love his personality and he makes me laugh everyday. He is so sweet and loving. I guess I am realizing that my time alone with him is coming to an end and soon I will have two to share my time, attention and love with. I am excited about it but it is a little sad too.

Ok, so it must be hormones because as I type this, I feel like crying. haha So I will stop for now. Just can't wait to meet my new little person!

Aww I can't wait to meet her! You do feel bad that you can't spend as much time as you would like with both of them but I don't think they notice as much as you do.

I remember having the exact same feelings when pregnant with Ava... I was so sad for Allie but so anxious for her to have a sibling. Its bitter sweet... but I know Kai will love Kendahl (though, he'll have his days where he wants her gone Im sure! haha). You're a great mother and I cant wait to see you with two little ones.

Aww kim!! I remember feeling the same way. I kept asking myself how can I love another baby the same way I love Maddy?? Would I have enough love for both?? As soon as Melanie was born.. it was like she was always here. Its amazing what a mother can give to their children. I cannot see my life and Maddy's without Melanie. its going to be great!! When you see your kids hugging each other and playing together you will look back and you will say... I dont remember life before having both!! You are a great mom and I cannot wait to see you with both kiddos. I am so happy and so proud of you Kim!!!

It is very overwhelming to go from one to two kids! At first you feel guilty and sad, but after a while you get the hang of it and realize that you gave your first so much, and it is only fair to do the same for #2. It is great you put Kai in school .. important and we did the same for Ethan before Kaeli came. You will do fine! The biggest piece of advice is a couple times a month both you and your husband need to have a day alone with just Kai.

Awww! I remember feeling the same way. I felt so bad for Abby because I couldn't do much while pregnant, so she ended up watching a lot of tv. I felt horrible because I knew once my babies arrived, I really wouldn't have time to give her my full attention. We always make sure to have some "you and me time" (what she calls it), even if it's just taking her to Target.

One thing that no one told me was how huge Abby would looks as soon as the babies were born! Before they were born, she was my baby and she always looked so small. I was floored the first time she came to see me at the hospital because I couldn't believe how grown up she looked. After staring at teeny little baby features all day, everything about Abby looked so big suddenly!
