10 Weeks (Give or Take)

The baby is due in 10 weeks. It seems both unbearably long and minutely small. I am anxious to be done with pregnancy, to meet our newest addition, to find out if you have a little brother or sister, and to hold and snuggle you both close to me simultaneously. But I am struggling with the knowledge that our family of three will be no more, that you’ll no longer have my full attention and affection. While I feel the need to prepare for the new baby, I feel a stronger drive to just be with you. I want to really focus on you these next 10 weeks, enjoy reading to you at bedtime, snuggling with you in the mornings, and engaging with you throughout the days.
