While it might be the pregnancy hormones talking, I have become more emotional as my due date draws near. It has finally hit me that not only will Nathan and my life change forever, but our sweet Aidan’s too. His whole world is about to be knocked upside down. Going from being the only child to a big brother will be a huge adjustment for him. Aidan is going to have to share mommy and daddy’s attention, learn to be more patient by waiting his turn and learn to love this little brother who is about to invade his domain. As excited as I am to bring another little boy into our family, it makes me sad to think my one on one time with our bubba is almost over. It will never just be mommy and Aidan again. Finley isn’t even here and I am worried about Aidan feeling neglected or not loved. I am scared of Aidan resenting the new baby or even me, because he isn’t getting mommy’s full attention. I am saddened, because it has just dawned on me that my baby boy is growing up and is no longer my 6 Lb 6 oz little guy anymore. Changes have always been a struggle for me, but this change above all will be one of the hardest. I will always cherish the time Aidan and I have had, just the two of us. I look back on these 19 months of being a stay at home mom, and they have been the best months of my life. While we are all going to have to make adjustments when Finn arrives, I will strive to let Aidan know how special and loved he is. Our sweet boy stole my heart from the moment I laid eyes upon him and that will never change. I know these next few months will have both ups and downs as we become a family of four, but I am looking forward to seeing Aidan in action as a big brother. I know he will end up loving his baby brother with all his heart and they will become the best of friends. Until Finley makes his appearance, I plan on having some special outings with Aidan and making our last few weeks super special. If you have any suggestions on fun activities a very pregnant momma can do with a toddler, please comment below. I am going to end this post and sneak in his room for the second time tonight and watch him sleep!
Love and blessings,
