8 weeks to go. Where has time gone? As we draw closer and closer to Graham's sweet arrival. I get more excited and more terrified at the same time. I wonder how on earth could I possibly love this baby as much as I love Dylan.? I know every new mom wonders that, and I'm not alone, but it still has me worried. Dylan has been my life for the last almost two years. Sometimes I look at him and get tears in my eyes because he is just so sweet, and he won't have my full attention anymore, he'll be too young to understand why mommy can't hold him right now. I know once they are both older they will get to play together and that will melt my heart, it is just those first few months I worry about.

I worry about how I will make time to do the things with Dylan that we currently do, story time, pump it up, random Target outings just to get out of the house, trips to the park, how on earth will I do those things with a newborn? I know it can and will be done, but it makes me tired just thinking about it.

Luckily for me, Dylan likes to share, so I will probably have to be very vigilant that he isn't shoving goldfish in his baby brothers mouth, or coloring on him with colors.

I am most excited to see them together. They will play, be rowdy and wild. They will fight, no doubt, but they will be buddies who go explore. I am, like I said incredibly excited to welcome baby boy Graham into this world, though at the same time, I know our world as we know it will change, once again, for the better. There is and will be until the day he arrives, the though in the back of my mind, oh man, what did we do?

This last picture is 32 weeks with Dylan for comparison, one of the only ones I've got!:)

You look great!! You'll be just fine with two!! My sister in law just had her 2nd and they are 3 years apart. She is only 3 weeks old and they are already getting out and about. You know how to deal with a newborn already so you'll be a pro adding one to the mix!!

Girl you will be great! Paige not having my full attention has been the hardest part, but she is getting lots of extra daddy love. And i try to go on a date with just her at least every other day, even if it is too the grocery store for more milk! Siblings will be so great for dylan and paige both.
