the boy and the belly
Only five (-ish) weeks to go and Micha's (and our) world will be changed for good.
Instead of being an only child, he'll be the oldest child.
Instead of having me available all day, every day,
he'll have to share me with his little brother, and learn to wait for his turn.
How grown up he will seem once his baby brother arrives.
Even though I know he'll love being a big brother,
and even though I realize what a good thing it will be for him to learn to share 'his' papa and mama,
these last few weeks will be filled with extra cuddles and probably a bitter sweet tear or two.
Because on that day, when our family of three becomes a family of four,
I will have two sweet bodies to cuddle instead of one, and I absolutely can't wait for that.
But I also find myself wanting to savor these last few weeks with the little boy that made me a mama.
He made me a mama, and that is something I'll never forget!
Just me and him, for a few more weeks.
