This boy...

I think my Michael is feeling some uncertainty about the impending birth of his little sister. Several times a day, he climbs on what is left of my lap and says, "Mom, I love your baby! Mom, I love you!" I give him a big hug and tell him that Mama and the baby love him too. Today, he informed me that yesterday, he was in my tummy. Oh, it may have been 4 years ago, but it certainly does feel like yesterday...

I am very thankful that I will still have Michael home with me this fall. I think that it will be good for him to have time with the baby and I, and to be able to be the big brother without his big brothers here (while they are at school).

My 3 year old baby and I are getting a "mommy day" as daddy took the big kids to the zoo today. I'm taking a quick "check blogs" break! I'm enjoying her so much and really hoping our next baby is just like her...sh! Don't tell the others!! haha! Just kidding!

Well, he'll always be your baby boy no matter what!!! I totally believe they sense the impending arrival. Always. Just keep loving him up like you are already doing.

I wonder if something is in the air. Yaya keeps talking about when she was born and how she was waiting for us to come get her. Very odd and makes me really wonder if she remembers such things.
