Dress: Pink Blush Maternity
Mommy! You have a baby in your tummy! Those were the first words that were exclaimed -to everyone- as I walked back into my Doctor’s waiting room. We had just finished up our very first ultrasound for our new baby, and Brandon and Hazel made it back to the waiting room before me. It was a moment I had wondered and worried about for a long while. How would Hazel react to knowing she would have a brother or a sister? And right then, that very moment, that excited exclamation, that’s when I got my answer. She was beyond thrilled.
I think it’s something every mother goes through, worry for their first born. Worry about how they will react to the news that they aren’t the one and only anymore, or that they aren’t going to be getting all the attention now. But, when I thought about it, I thought, does she even know? Does she even know what it will be like? How could she? How can I? She can’t really because it’s not something that she has experienced is it? And when I heard her excitement, when I saw the brightness in her face that’s when I knew. I knew that she would be the best big sister, that she would be my biggest helper, that she would be more than happy to have a sibling. Of course, there will be some rough patches, some jealousy here and there, but I couldn’t help but think of how happy she would be to have someone -other than me- to play with every day of her life.
And that’s the thing, isn’t it? Having a sibling is kind of what makes life better. Having someone who is there for you, someone you can count on, someone to give you advice on certain things. It’s about having someone to grow up with, and experience life with. Having a sibling is a lot like having a partner in crime, but for us, I’m hoping there is no criminal activity.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited and thrilled we are, to have this new baby in our home. Oh, how I worry for the days of newborn-ness and the lack of sleep I will be getting. But when I think about it now, I know it’s all worth it in the end. Every little bit will be worth it, especially if my Hazel gets to have a sibling of her own. Especially if she gets to experience everything a sibling brings and then some because I have a feeling there are going to be some pretty good times with these two sisters. I can really feel it.
I also wanted to quickly brag about this pretty dress I’m wearing, it’s maternity and nursing friendly which makes it so very perfect. PinkBlush has a ton of maternity and nursing friendly dresses for every different kind of style. You can also check out this post where I shared my new favorite maternity -and nonmaternity- shirt.
Which one would you pick?
