Our Little Treasure
This pregnancy has not been easy on me. Although, honestly, wallowing in the drudgery (morning sickness and exhaustion) makes me feel wracked with guilt. I highly doubted we would be blessed with two children and yet here I sit, typing away, literally, barefoot and pregnant in my kitchen. A dream come true.
I guess in some ways, I still find it hard to believe that we have been blessed again. And I’m afraid of jinxing it. In other ways, I’m just plain out nervous about handling two kids 18 months apart.
But, while I write this post, I’ll allow myself to imagine…imagine the beauty that lies ahead with two little GIRLS in our family. That’s right GIRL. We are having another baby girl!
I can see them now…
Sisters splashing around in a bath, scrambling for the best toys.
Sisters chatting away in their matching twin beds (ahem, more on those beds at a later post)
Sisters playing house, dolls and, hey, some Tonka trucks too.
Sisters giggling until they fall to the ground in fits of laughter.
Sisters sharing their deepest darkest secrets with one another and comforting each other like no one else can.
Sisters fighting out their battles as they adjust and become strong beautiful women.
Sisters venturing out into the real world independently but always with many, many phone calls back and forth.
Sisters falling in love and finding the right match for themselves.
Sisters starting their own families and discovering that there is no greater, deeper and more rewarding blessing then motherhood.
Yes, currently the days are long for me. But in just four short months, I will be holding my little treasure. Our huge blessing. Our baby girl. I know in my heart, without having met her yet, that she is very special. I can’t wait until the day that we meet our baby and introduce her to her sister.
