Five Months DTE!

We are 5 months DTE today!! I'm feeling very hopeful and excited for what's in the future for our family.

On the other hand, I'm trying to enjoy every single moment with the two special little girls I have at home already. I know what a whirlwind life will be once our third precious babe comes home. I know it's going to be stressful. We are going to be going through attachment and I don't know how much individual attention I will be able to give the girls.

So for now, in this wait, I am taking more time to read more books, rubbing backs and holding my girls longer before bedtime (and any other time they want it), taking them outside to play and chalk and letting them enjoy just a little bit more tv.

It's nice to get a little perspective every once in a while. I'm thankful for this time to just focus on my sweet girls and love on them while we wait. I want them to feel secure in their places here at home before their world gets flipped upside down.

I'm excited to be one month closer to seeing our little boy or girl's face!!

I love this! What a great way to look at it after just getting an email about the wait times increasing today. Thanks - I needed to read this. And yes, there is SO much that can be done in the wait, including a lot of learning and growing for this mama so I can learn how to be a better mother as well! THANKS!
