My baby for not so long.



The imminent arrival of a baby is at hand. I am sure by the 28th of Feb. I will have baby number four. I've introduced a new baby to two siblings now, and both times, they were full grown kiddos, with super hero or princess underpants. This time my baby gets to meet my baby. So weird. I soon get to pack a diaper bag with TWO diaper sizes. Weird. Laila is what you might call a slow walker, so I get to CARRY two babies. Weird. I've arranged the kids rooms to accommodate TWO cribs. Double weird.

What a little cutie! I remember my heart just aching for each one of my kids as we added another to our family, but it will be just fine. Less individual attention, but more love. Laila does still seem like a baby to me. I can't believe she will be two! I HOPE you have a baby by the 28th! Isn't that like waaay past your due date?

I definitely know what it's like having two babies! It's hard in the beginning, but they end up being such good friends. I have really liked having them so close in age! :)

I seriously don't know how you're going to do it! Good Luck!

Oh, you can do it!! Ashton was 18 months when the twins were born. I have faith in you!!

We had three in diapers for 7 months.... It is really weird to have more than one baby!!

You'll do great. It is weird having 2 babies. Anya and Bridgette are only 15 months apart, but they are the best of friends. I wouldn't change it for the world. Laila is so cute. Just remember, you can do it, Lucy. You are a Fantastic mom and such a strong lady. :)

oh, she is such a cutie though! And just think, if you have another girl, it will be like you and me! and you know how well we got along! ;-) you might be like me, and just not go anywhere for a year or so. :)

So can we say that technically you are having twins? Do I win the bet?!?!? I said this pregnancy would produce twins...we weren't specific exactly HOW that would happen....

I think it is worth it all in the end. Mine are all under 2 years apart and I feel a little crazy at times, but it works out. Nursing time always seems to turn into story time. I figure the baby is used to all the pokes and nudges from the womb anyway!
