The Only Child

I am so thankful to have had these past few months at home with Sawyer.  Although I really loved my job and do miss working a lot, we have had so much fun just being together and making memories (for me anyways) leading up to Ty being born.

I am crazy excited to meet Ty tomorrow, but part of me is a little (or a lot) emotional about Sawyer not being an only child anymore.  Is that weird?  I don't know…never done this before…  So I am trying to focus on how much fun we have had the last almost 3 months and how great of a big sister she is going to be.  She talks daily about her brudder and how she wants to play blocks and eggs (we got down the Easter eggs last week) with him.  She wants to change his diaper and give him milk and share her Jungle Book movie with him.  I think she is going to be so in love with him and boss him around as long as he will tolerate it - just like she does the rest of us.  I know she will be in great hands over the next couple of days but I can't wait to get home and adjust to our new life as a family of four.

Over the last few months we have had the chance to do a lot of playing puzzles, dressing up, story time at the library, ice cream dates, reading books, going on a couple road trips, playing babies, more playing babies and just hanging out at home with nothing to do.

I hope the adjustment will be easy for her, and that she thinks being a big sister is just the greatest.  I survived the transition of being an only child to a big sister and it all worked out pretty well for me!  But, I can't help being a little sad about this chapter of our lives closing.  Even though I am more excited about what is to come in the next chapter...
