On this second to last night of spring break I am so content laying on the couch.
I’m happily enjoying feeling little kicks and rolls in my belly, thinking about getting to know this little person in a few short months.
When I was pregnant with my first a lot of my focus was on “what will it be like to have a baby?” I was consumed with thoughts of things we needed, how I would survive without sleep, how we would get a room together in time.
Now all I can think is how amazing it will be to meet this little one and get to know them in the coming years. Not just seeing him or her but learning their personality, likes, dislikes, and what their laugh will sound like.
I think the difference is less about my anxiety of being a new mom, and more about how unbelievably in love I am with my son and who he is and who he is becoming. I’m in awe of the opportunity to get to love and know another little best friend in the same way.
