Changes





I woke up at 4am for the 6th time to use the bathroom last night and never fell back asleep.  Lovely.  As I was laying there until Daci got up I couldn't help but think about the last three years.  Daci and I have been little buddies all day, every day for almost three years!  It has been just the two of us during the days and I feel like she is a part of me.  When I'm not with her, there is a piece of me missing.  I can't believe that is all about to change!  She won't be the center of my attention anymore.  It won't all be about her.  I will have to divide my love and attention among three children now!  How weird!  I pray she handles it well.  I hope it isn't hard for her.  I hope she doesn't feel neglected.  I hope she knows how much we still love and adore her, even though she isn't the only princess around anymore.  I love my little Doodle Bug and have loved the last few years of just she and I hanging out all day.  I don't know why it is all hitting me at once, but I have decided to really cherish the last few days we have as the two musketeers :)

I just caught up a little bit on reading blogs. You have been through A LOT in the 3 weeks I was gone! Your Christmas and Christmas traditions look like they were so fun. You are amazingly beautiful! I cringe imagining what I would look like with twins.
I went through a lot of emotions right before Jacob got here too. I felt a lot of guilt because Jackson only got me for 16 months and some of it was bed rest. But as moms we definitely guilt ourselves too much. Daci will be so excited about babies and being mommy's big helper.

Kori,
I am a close friend of your mother's. You and I met on the Mediterrian Cruise when you were pregnant with Daci. I have 3 children (now 13, 11 and 9). I remember having the EXACT same thoughts when I was about to give birth to my second child. I loved my time wiht my first born and will ALWAYS treasure that time of my life. He did FANTASTIC when his little sister came around and Daci will, too. At times it is hard to divide our time amongst our children and our hubby BUT we do figure it out. My children are all very close and I am thrilled that my husband and I were able to give each of them siblings. They love playing together and yes...they do have their moments, as well, BUT you are about to give Daci one of the best gifts she will ever receive...SIBLINGS who will become her FOREVER FRIENDS!
Good luck with your delivery, Kori! ENJOY this time of your life!!!!
