ANY DAY NOW…

I remember what it felt like, those last few days before baby arrived. Full of joyful anticipation for what was to come, offset by a bit of nostalgia for the last precious moments of our familiar life together as two. It occurs to me now, as I look through these images of another family in waiting, that the days leading up to number two must be infinitely more¬†emotional. Sure, you’ve done it before, you have all the tools — but your first child is your world. Fills you, undeniably and beautifully, to the very brim. So how do you learn to share your love / energy / time / patience? To not feel guilty¬†for bringing a new all-consuming love into the picture?

The rational piece of me knows that people do this everyday, and that everything will be more than okay. That love multiplies, even if energy / time / patience do not. Maybe you can let me know your heart’s experience, Jennifer, once that little boy graces your family with his presence. Any day now…xo
