I don't quite know what Reese thinks of the whole "baby in my belly" thing. When I ask her where her baby brother is she points to my belly. She'll also give my belly kisses when I tell her to give the baby a kiss. However, despite all my efforts I think she is going to be quite surprised when we bring home a baby in November.
I have such mixed feelings about having a second child. Part of me is sad because I of the unknown of splitting my time between two kids but then another part of me of course is excited and happy to have another sweet little angel. I get nervous thinking of my inadequacies. Can I really be a good mom with 2 kids? But when I remember my savior then I know I can do it if I trust him. He will make up for my inabilities and help me have the strength, energy, and love for any kids he trusts me with. He'll show me and Eric how to raise them.
Lately, whenever I see a newborn I get more and more excited to have such a precious baby again. Newborns are just so precious! My sister's friend gave me a garbage bag full of baby boy clothes, my goal this evening is to go through them and then write out of list of things I still need to get. It is kind of hard though because what sizes do I get? I have no idea how big or small he is going to be. Maybe I'll just make the list, get the basics, and save the rest of the shopping for after he is born (when it will be that much harder to go shopping :)).
