Fabulous Four

As I sit here listening to my baby, Jilly Bean babble and coo as she sits on the floor playing with her toys, I find myself still in disbelief that I will have another infant in the house in the next 6 months! read that right!  I am pregnant...again! :)

Before you feel the need to comment, yes, I do know how this happens and no, I don't know if this is our last one.  I made the mistake of feeling the completeness of my little family when Jilly was born and look what happened!  Ha...we are less powerful than we think we are.  It's true that I was very shocked and bewildered when I found out, but as the pregnancy has progressed and I spend another morning visiting my porcelain friend (believe me, we are tight after 4 pregnancies), I find myself more attached and more filled with hope and happiness at the thought of our growing family of 6.  This addition is bringing rearrangements within our little house.  Our big boys will have to move into the basement "guest" room and our new little bundle will have to move into their old room.  J has put off his plans to get his pilot's license for now so that he can be around and help out with my less than easy, breezy pregnancy.  And, let's not forget little Jilly Bean...

I find myself wishing the next 6 months away.  My due date is July 30th...a mere 9 days after Jilly's first birthday.  By wishing that time away, however, I am wishing a farewell to Jilly Bean's infancy...a time so precious and fleeting.  We all know that the emotional state of a pregnant woman is lacking in stability and this has definitely caused more than one tearful episode.  She has had to deal with a lot of changes already due to the future sibling growing in the only home she knew 6 short months ago.  She is the most relaxed, glowing baby I have ever known though and has adjusted beautifully.  Coincidence?  I think not... :)

Can't wait to welcome our little "Squirt" to the it July yet??? :)
