You Are Loved

Lately, I have been thinking about the changes that the new baby is going to bring for us.

One of the things that my mind seems to be focusing on is how will I possibly be able to give both my babies the same amount of love, time and attention. Is it even possible?

I am sure that most mothers {and mothers-to-be} worry think about this at some point {right?}.

I remember the moment I saw E for the first time {24 hours after his birth} and how that felt. My heart exploded. It grew. It was completely overwhelmed. As soon as his face perked up to the sound of my voice and those eyes glared right through me, I was in love. And I fell pretty hard for that little guy!

Could I possible have this same reaction this time around?

How can my heart and my love grow any more?

Maybe because I am a second child and had a lot of the “Second Child Syndrome,” I feel like it’s not possible. Every decision we make for this child, I second guess. What if we did more in preparation for E than this baby? The hubster asks, “How would he know?” This is all well and true, but the fact remains that I would know!

I know the moment I look into this little guy’s eyes, my heart will explode again. I will, under no doubt, have more decisions to worry ponder about.

But I know deep down in my heart that it will be possible to have that feeling again.

My heart will grow some more.
