First off, a little back story… Grae absolutely adored being around Portia’s baby sister at this morning’s play date.  In fact, she told me that in addition to Jessica’s delicious cheese scones, holding the baby was the best part of the whole morning. (To say that someone is anxious to be a big sister one day would be a huge understatement.) 

So today, after her nap while we were enjoying some quiet time at home, she turned to me and very, very seriously said…

Mama, I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for my baby sister, but I just can never find her.

Her face was a mixture of genuine concern, confusion, and disappointment, and it made my heart hurt just a little.  Is it normal to feel most pressured to have number two by your {still 2 year old} firstborn?

    If I wasn’t already super pregnant and due on September 13th, my son who will be 3 in October would be pestering me daily about having a brother. He is so excited to be a big brother that he asks daily if his brother will be here. He LOVES babies just like Gracen. He even has to tell his brother Goodnight when we lay him down! 🙂
