I can't tell you how many times I have heard people say stuff about the second child and how they don't get the same excitement as the first. I also think that most moms who hear that but don't have a second child think, "that won't be me, you'll see". Haha. Well, I must admit that I feel that already and I am only half way through. Although I was so anxious and excited to become pregnant, I think there are a couple of things that have played into that. First, I had some complications at the beginning where my doctor told me the pregnancy could go either way. As Dan and I worked through that and trusting what God's plan was I didn't allow myself the joys of dreaming of the new child. Add to that our crazy busy summer, it has just got pushed to the back of my mind. Trust me I never forgot I was pregnant, especially with how exhausted I was, but it wasn't top thing on my mind like the first was. I am halfway through my pregnancy now and we know we are having a boy, and my mind is growing with thoughts and dreams. I praise God entirely for giving us this child and for keeping him growing strong inside. He is being created and designed by God this very minute. How cool is that?!
Anyway, as we await baby boy White I am excitedly planning the nursery and buying things to prepare for this new addition! One thing that I know is different from Aiden is that I cannot wait for pregnancy to be over, I already am too uncomfortable. lol. I am excited to hold that sweet thing in my arms and have him forever be apart of our lives. He will be one of a kind and I can't wait to see who that is!
Thanks for letting me share this with you and for taking the time to read it!
