Preparing for Change

I feel kind of bad for Eli. His whole life is about to change and he has no idea what's coming.
Jeff has to remind me that Eli's life is changing for the better, but I still wish his little brain could somewhat grasp the concept of what he'll view as an invader in a few weeks.
In the meantime, I've been spending quality time with him and cherishing how easy I have it with just one little rascal.
Because Jeff also reminded me that my life is going to be changing a lot with the new baby. And I realized I might have been taking Eli's four hour naps for granted. And I haven't fully appreciated sleeping through the night for the last year. And I had a bit of an anxiety attack last night when I tried to envision grocery shopping with two kids.
I'm excited to meet the new baby and I'm anxious to see how we all adjust to being a family of four -- even if that means I won't be leaving the house alone for a few months. I can't believe the end is so close! Wish me luck and make your predictions on baby's arrival date!

I'll go with April 10th. That's the night I'm throwing a bridal shower, so I'll probably get a phone call that day telling me you need me to tend Eli.

Yay! I'm so excited for you. I hope he comes soon! The one thing I really dread is leaving the house with 2. You'll have to let me know the tricks since you'll have it figured out by the time ours comes :)

I can't express how hard it is to go from an only child to an older brother. Perhaps the most difficult day of my life.
