With baby #2’s impending arrival, it’s becoming more apparent that my precious Keira is not a baby anymore. At times it makes me a little sad to think that I’ll have to split my time between 2 kids instead of just devoting all of it to Keira, but from what I hear, your heart miraculously grows with each subsequent child (#SecondTimeMomProblems).
It’s such a mix of emotions at this stage… some sadness, some excitement and lots and lots of anticipation. I’ll be 38 weeks tomorrow, so we’ll see when baby #2 decides to make her debut.
In the meantime, I’m doing my best to enjoy this last little bit of mommy time with Keira, and allowing myself to indulge in a little nostalgia looking at old photos.
Enjoy the weekend!
Ciao for Now,

thanks for sharing. It’s definitely a strange thing to think about. You’ve loved your little one more than you’ve ever loved anything or anyone in the world, so how could you possibly love the same. Having only one child, I can’t speak from experience, but like you said, your heart grows, you find room. But you love differently. It’s a different person with different quirks, experiences, views, etc. so what they give you to love is different, but just as beautiful. And most importantly, just as special between the two of you. Congrats and good luck. Hope to see you guys again soon.
Thanks so much for the kind words. So encouraging and appreciated! Hope you and the family are doing great.
