We are SO stinkin excited for our appointment tomorrow! I’ve tried to keep myself plenty busy the last couple of days because my mind is racing w/ thoughts, ideas, etc. etc. on whether or not we will welcome a son or a daughter into our home in a few short months.. (okay, so maybe I’ve still let some thoughts trickle in.. lol).. Erik even asked to confirm our appointment time tomorrow and his eyes were just lit up w/ excitement.. I love it.. I love sharing this amazing journey w/ my husband..
Kaylor asked out of the blue this morning, “Mom? What was my first word? You know, as a baby?”.. I told her it was “mom/mama”.. I remembered the time frame when she first started saying it, so I told her that we could watch a video of it tonight.. So after her shower, we snuggled up in her room and popped in the tape. It brought tears to my eyes watching her grow from 4 months to a year old on that tape.. I kept stealing glances at her as well, and her face was lit up as she watched & listened attentively.. She just kept smiling.. That definitely made my heart melt.. If she only began to know how much I’ve always loved her.. She finally fell asleep before we got all the way through the tape.. When I tucked her in bed, I just sat watching her for a few moments, sleeping so peacefully. I often still can see that baby from 7 years ago, when she’s sleeping.. I absolutely adore her.. She will also be coming along tomorrow to see if she’s gonna have a sister or a brother.. I’m so glad that she’ll only be missing lunch hour & recess to share in this special time for us as a family..
