Two months from today

Tomorrow I'll get back to the topic I've been posting about for the last week.

But for now I have to acknowledge what today is: July 7.

Big deal huh?

What's so special about today?

Let me tell you: Exactly two months from today is my due date. Two months?!

I'm not gonna lie....it's scary. Just today Samuel climbed onto the door of the dishwasher while it was open. He dumped out the cat food. He's had about 5 dirty diapers and cries every time I change him because his little bottom is red.

Life around here is, well, busy. Hard. Crazy. Full of adventure.

And it's only going to get crazier, busier and harder.

People say I'm going to have my hands full with two. Well my grandma (who just recently passed away and was a mom to 13 children) told me to tell those people that my hands are already full - they are just going to be a little fuller.

Isn't that the truth?

I completely agree that my hands ARE already full with a growing, curious, active, strong little man to look after.

But that doesn't mean I'm not nervous wondering how I'll feed two babies....change two sets of diapers....dress and bathe two bodies....chase after two little kiddos.

I don't know how I'm going to do it, but approximately two months from today I'm going to find out. I'm very excited. And quite terrified. And trying to trust God every day for the grace, wisdom and strength I'll need to parent 2 babies 11 months apart.

God has supplied for all of your needs thus far and He will continue to do so. I can understand why you will feel overwhelmed, but it is going to be an amazing adventure :)

I have already been praying...and will keep doing so!

Also...I'm going to send you the best diaper rash cream ever. :-)

One day at a time, sister! David and Sydney are 15 months apart - I love watching how close they are and how they share friends. Their two older siblings are a couple years apart, while that was easier on me at the beginning, David and Sydney have always entertained each other.

As the mother of two, eight months apart ... it is scary. It isn't easy. But man is it a blessing. I also like to say that there will be moments that it is harder to have two so close and moments that it is easier. Everyday I am overwhelmed and amazingly blessed all rolled into one. I love every minute of it!
