Throwback to when Matthew was here, we miss him!!!
We are almost in the home stretch of this pregnancy. 40 days until little Connor is due to arrive in this world. I feel as if I should be more prepared, but in reality I am not even close. I still have to finish getting his room ready, make freezer meals so that we do not starve when he comes and figure out how I am going to juggle two small children, a full-time job and all my household duties.  I am feeling more than a little overwhelmed when I think of how much crazier life is going to be. As his due date grows closer, I find myself wishing even more that we already lived in California. Perhaps everything would not seem as daunting if I had some family nearby.  I know that I will find a way to make everything work, it is just hard to imagine it right now.  What I worry most about, is how Aiden is going to deal with another little human getting my attention. I hope that I can find a happy balance between my boys and that our family just grows stronger. I will switch gears now and give you more of an update on my awesome little Aiden. Lately, when I have been reading to him, he has been actually reading to me. He has at least 4 of our books pretty much memorized. I love hearing him recite the books back to me. It is such a fun experience.  He is remembering the words to more and more songs, he likes to sing all the time just like his mommy. We recently made muffins because his favorite book is If You Give a Moose a Muffin. In the story the moose eats "another and another" until they are all gone. Aiden thinks it is hilarious to ask for "another and another" while he is eating the muffins, he ate 5 mini-muffins in one sitting! Aiden misses all of his family. Almost every time we get into the car he asks if we are going to see, "Papa, Grandma, Adam, Jaquelyn, Auntie Marilyn, Mars, Anna, Rodney, Baby, or GGma." Sometimes he only ask about a few, but sometimes he lists them all.  Just wanted to let you guys know that you are loved and missed by Aiden, as well as myself! Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
