Mommy’s Girl

I’m not sure why but for the last month or so my little girl has really been a mommy’s girl. Only wanting mommy to help her brush her hair, push her in the shopping cart, or carry her and so on. As I am now down to single digit number of weeks left in my pregnancy I find myself totally giving in to my little girl’s mommy wants.  I know that all too soon I will not be able to give her all the attention that I can now. While I am very excited to meet this new little person that I have growing inside of me, part of me is sad that things will be changing soon. I know that giving my daughter a sibling is one of the best things that I can give her. I adore my siblings and really don’t know how I would have made it through parts of my life without them.

After our new little one arrives some of the things that she counts on mommy to do will have to be done by daddy. I know that a time will come when she will need something while I am nursing the new baby. She will have to wait or will have to have someone else help her. I know that these things are not bad and that they are part of the process but they will be a big change for her.  She is going from an only child to a big sister. I think that she will be a wonderful big sister! She loves talking about the baby in mommy’s tummy. She gives the baby kiss and soft high fives. We have done all that we can to help her get ready for the new baby.

So In these last few weeks of her being an only child I’m going to spoil her and let her get as much mommy time as she wants! I am going to cherish the time just as much as she is! Embracing what we have now…In a few weeks we will be a family of 4 and she will be a great big sister!

    Aww, so sweet! She WILL be a GREAT big sister! Your love for C will only grow more and more when you see her with the new baby. I made a conscious effort everyday to spend some 1-on-1 time with Ethan, so he didn’t feel left out that I had to spend so much time and effort with Tessa. She will adjust and do just fine! It only gets better and better everyday!!!! LOVE YOU!
