38 weeks: when big sister is near

It’s probably just a fluke. Or a response to the fact that I’m reading Small Fry a book or singing her to sleep. But whenever we lie down together and snuggle up, the baby starts wiggling like crazy.

Usually Small Fry has her little legs tucked up against my belly, and when she feels those movements, she always shrieks with joy, yanks up my shirt and scooches down to put her hand on my belly.

It’s awesome. And I’m going to miss it.

I always tell Small Fry, “baby knows you’re nearby and loves you so much,” which delights her. She’s been talking to my belly for quite a while, and this little bedtime ritual seems to be creating a bond between the two.

Two. Two kids.

I cannot wait for them to meet.

    I’m totally living vicariously through your pregnancy. There. I admited it.

  16. What a precious photo and sweet moments you are sharing. Just wait until they meet! The look in baby’s eyes when he/she meets their sister will be incredible? Like “hey, I remember your voice. I know you! And I love you!”

  17. What a lovely photo! Wondering what the age gap is between your two. I am expecting my 2nd in about 4/5 weeks and my son is 1 yr and 10 months. Trying to get him to grips a little bit with the fact that he will have a little sister soon but he doesn’t seem that interested πŸ™‚ He has started putting his hands on my tummy though when the baby kicks. Good luck for the next few weeks!
