There are just a few more days left until my due date with Baby Boy #2, so I plan to soak up the ray of sunshine in my life, William. These last few days, I’ll just watch him, hug him, love him. The past week he has been waking up in the middle of the night, screaming hysterically “mama, mama, mama” so I run in and pick him up and he quickly melts like butter into my shoulder. Instead of being frustrated that he is up in the middle of the night, I have been relishing these moments. Our one on one time together. In the dark. Just us. Him, sleeping soundly as I sway with my big belly. I lay him back down shortly after picking him up and he goes right back to sleep. It is like his little subconscious knows there will soon be another baby baby taking up my attention in the wee hours of the night, so he wants to make sure to sneak in a few more nights of his own. Just like when he was tiny. I get teary-eyed at times thinking that our time together is some what fleeting because soon there will be another ray of sunshine sharing the spot light with him.

I cannot wait to meet my new son. I cannot wait to touch him and see who he is. I cannot wait to give him a name [still very up in the air]. I cannot wait to feel what I felt the day I gave birth almost two years ago. The very best day of my life. I am so ready to feel that feeling again. And most of all, I cannot wait for the moment when I see my two boys meet one another. Two angels that are my very own.
