Having grown up an only-child, yesterday I spent the day with Madison, and it continued to cross my mind "this is her last day as an only-child," and I thought of it in such a sad way, like she was loosing something so very important. It made me sad to think that Madie will never be the exact same Madie as she was June 17, 2009. I've never doubted that I will not have enough love to share with both of my children- I learned that with Madison. When you have a child, your heart doesn't take love from one thing and give it to your child- your heart simply grows. I think yesterday I simply allowed change to overwhelm me. This little guy is going to be a huge change for our family, but I say bring it on!
So, in about an hour I am going to wake up Cody and Madie, we're all going to get ready and call the hospital at 6 am to see exactly what time to go in and CHANGE OUR LITTLE FAMILY OF 3 TO OUR HAPPY FAMILY OF 4! My Doctor told me last week that usually they will tell you to come right in, so there is a good chance by about 7 or 8 we will be in the hospital on our way to having a baby! We will try to keep as many people posted as possible, but since this is a completely different experience from going into labor with Madie, being sent home in labor only to have my water break a couple hours later and going back to the hospital in "THIS IS IT, WE'RE HAVING A BABY TODAY" labor- we honestly don't know what to expect.
As soon as we can, we will try to post pictures to the blog, but I don't know if St. Mark's has internet or not, so it may take a little while.
