I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going. I am over 31 weeks pregnant now and will probably have this baby around 38 weeks...which means, less than 7 weeks to go! How can that be? Several girls I know in real life and some of the ladies' whose blogs I read have had their babies in the last few days/weeks, and I know that means I'm coming up soon. I can't wait to meet this little man! Although, I want to revel in this time I have with just Judah and Samuel.
I haven't even started getting anything ready for Baby Tiny. I haven't gone through any of the clothes, we don't even have a bed for him, what else do I even need to do? It's so different the third time around. I keep telling Eric we need to start buying the things we need, but he wants to wait. I think it seems far away to him, but I know it's going to sneak up on us.
My boys are so smart! I know every mom thinks that, but I just have to tell you the things that they are doing. (And record them for myself) Judah can spell his name, recognize a lot of his letters, knows what sounds many of them make, knows that m is for mama, p is for papa, r is for robb (grandpa), s is for samuel, sing many, many, many songs. He's always telling people, "I like music. I play the guitar and drums." And then Samuel says, "I play the drums and bass." Samuel can count to 11, sing Jesus Loves Me, the abcs, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, London Bridges, and several songs from church. My grandma got Judah this little Baby Bible with Sunday School songs in it and Judah can sing along to everyone in there.
Tonight during cell group our babysitter, Golden, called Judah and another little girl into the room. She said, "What did God make on the first day?" Judah said, "Day! And, night!" And, she said, "And it was...?" He said, "Good!"
He's so excited about his baby brother and always asks to hold him. Today he said, "I want to hold and see Baby Tiny everyday. Will you help me?" Judah become a big brother for the first time at 18 months. He was so little and I don't think he even remembers his life without Samuel. This time he fully understands everything that's going on. He loves to read books with pictures of babys and even asks about my uterus. So funny!
I think Samuel thinks that Baby Tiny is my belly button. He'll be in for a surprise.... Samuel is much more a mommy's boy than Judah was. It might be a little bit of an adjustment for him, but I'm sure he'll do great. We'll just give him extra love and cuddles!
So, I guess that was mostly for me (oh, and the relatives)...
