I love, love, love this picture! It’s our first family picture of a family of 4. I am so excited for this baby I can hardly wait. April 28th is the official due date but with the complications I had with E, I will have a scheduled C-section most likely on April 21st. I’m all for it. I had an easy recovery from my C-section with E and being able to plan makes things so much easier with a toddler to take care of as well. The only bummer is that our good friends are getting married on April 26th in Duluth and I won’t be able to attend. Mike is a groomsman so Grandma Sharon will be helping out while Mike is gone.
We've been doing our best to prepare E for his little brother or sister but I’m not sure how much a 17 month old understands. He’ll point or pat my tummy and say "baby". We got one of my old cabbage patch dolls out and talk to him about how the baby needs it’s diaper changed and we need to be gentle with the baby. Things were going fine until one day when Mike was holding the doll while reading E a story. E didn't care to share his Daddy, and threw the doll on the floor. I’m sure it will be an adjustment for all of us when Baby 2 arrives but I think of how much joy E has brought our family and Baby 2 will only add more.
