day out with my buddy

yesterday will and i had a fun day together. we went to lunch, did some shopping, and went to the aquarium. will was such a good little boy yesterday--he only ran away from me in the store once! and after a long talk about not running away from mommy, he didn't do it again the rest of the day! i was so proud of him :)

then i got a little emotional. as we were holding hands walking through the aquarium, getting excited about the frogs, otters, penguins, sharks, and fishies, i started thinking about how my little will has been my shadow/sidekick/buddy for the last two and a half years. and it really set in that in just a couple of weeks, we'd have a new little buddy tagging along with us. it won't just be the two of us anymore! of course, that's wonderful and we can't wait, but i couldn't help feel a little bit emotional and sentimental about the whole thing. especially since peter has been gone, will and i have really been together 24/7. i think that this new baby might really rock both our worlds when she comes!

anyway. in the meantime (2 weeks . . . maybe 3? . . . maybe a week and a half?), i will enjoy my one on one time with this little rascal! and then when our sweet girl arrives, hopefully we will all adjust quickly and william will have a new little best friend :)

I'm excited for Will to have a new "best friend." Siblings are great. I always get those same feelings right before I have another baby. Life will change. It won't be the same. But it will be better! So excited for you both to love the new baby! And if you haven't had her by next Thursday do you want to do a play date in the am?

I felt exactly the same way. Enjoy every last minute with Will. The new baby will come and you will get to fall in love with her and you won't be able to remember life without this new little person even with the bumps that come.

If I can offer any hope, the transition hasn't been to tough for us. I know Will is older than Cash but so far so good and now we are an official family because there are siblings. It feels nice.

Good luck these last few weeks. I hope you are sleeping ok and that you are not too uncomfortable. The last few weeks are the worst part for me. She is almost here!

Counting the days until Will's sister arrives. He will really enjoy a little playmate.
