16 weeks 4 days

Dear Bump,

Well if you look really hard at my belly...you can tell I am pregnant. I no longer have to push my belly out in order to show. It isn't a big belly but it makes all the more real that you are there and will be here soon enough.

I've been having a bit of pain but I think it is because I have to do a lot of bending. Your big brother really keeps me on my toes. Hopefully he will only teach you the good things. The other day we went out and collected acorns to celebrate the arrival of Autumn. Can't wait until Spencer can show you the things I am showing and teaching him.

I have to admit...I am scared. I know I will love you just as much as I love your Daddy and Spencer but what if I can't handle both of you? I didn't realize how overwhelming motherhood could be and now with two of you needing my attention, well it can really seem like a lot. Thank goodness I still have plenty of time to wrap my head around it.

Several more weeks before we decide to see what you are...but in our hearts you're already special
.

Love,
Mommy

  1. So sweet. I used to talk to my babies all the time while they were in my belly. I swear that's why they want to talk to me all the time now that they are out. Praying it will always be the case. Going from 1 to 2 is really hard. But, as hard as it may seem, it's worth it when you see the kids interacting and loving each other. Seeing my girls hug each other is the best feeling in the whole world.

  2. You're so cute. I had pain with #2 too. She sat on my sciatic nerve pretty much the whole time. GOod thing she's a nice kid now.
