Every day I become more and more fascinated that this incredible journey is about to finish – or start; depending on how you look at it. As I sit and write this blog I am 26 days away from my due date. It’s scary, exciting and very overwhelming all at the same time. It feels like just yesterday that I was announcing my pregnancy and any day now I will be introducing you to the newest addition to our family. It just goes to show how truly precious time is. We are about to embark on quite a journey; another chapter if you will, of An Angel’s Island.
I finished up work a week ago and am now enjoying my time being a wife and a mother on a full-time basis. It’s wonderful to be able to get up in the morning and putter around the house, do the laundry, cook meals and spend time with Mike and Matthew. We are ready for the arrival of Marcus and to say Matthew is excited is the understatement of the universe! We have the date marked out on the calendar and he is counting down daily.
Today I was finally able to get some pictures done with Matthew. I have been trying for a while, but in the life of an 11 year old boy, other things always seemed to take priority. We caught him today on a good day. Either that or he decided that this would be the day he’d humour Mom. I’d like to share our photo-session with you.
We had fun and it was so nice to hear Mat interacting with the baby as Marcus was kicking away while these pictures were being taken. I’m sure once Marcus arrives there will be moments of trying times, but so-far-so-good. I’m glad Mathew has been such a huge part of this pregnancy. It’s really been amazing to watch this entire process through his eyes. It gave both Mike and I an outlook on things that we didn’t have when we were expecting Matthew. The outlook through the eyes of a child – the eyes of a Big-Brother-To-Be. That’s been special.
Until next time…
