closer and closer

I am sitting here with my daughter who is 2 1/2 and I am 2 weeks from my due date.  Another baby girl is going to enter my life, our lives.  I barely remember what I used to fill my days with before having Liberty and now that is all changing again.  There will probably come a time when I won't be able to remember what it's like with just one child.  I guess maybe that is how you build a happy life...accepting, growing, there is no need to look back and wonder.  I am anxious about how we are going to eat, sleep, play and function as our little family grows, but I am feeling up to the joy and challenge of it all.  So grateful that I have such a great and helpful husband, he really is the one to help me feel "normal" in my most challenging times.


  1. Kinda silly but with each new child that came, along with my anxieties of how am I going to function, my husband took off one day from work and "shadowed me" shopping, etc, to help show me all things are possible. The idea was that we were suppose to pretend he wasn't there, and I was do it all on my own with the extra child (shopping, etc), but thankfully he couldn't help himself from helping during each practice run. Hahaha. Anyway, I learned that it is possible to get all things done with more than one child. And any troubles that come along the way, are just another bonding moment with the kids. Together we have fun times. Together we have difficult times. And together we get through each moment together. You will do great!! One breathe at a time. And one celebration at a time.

  2. Good luck, Krista -
    enjoy your journey!
