On September 7th, we welcomed the newest addition, our sweet baby boy M, to our family. Immediately, all my worries about how I could possibly love another child as much as I loved G were calmed. My heart grew a million sizes in an instant as I cried tears of joy and welcomed my son with open arms.
On that hot summer day, Labor Day to be exact, (yes, in labor on Labor Day) we went from a family of 3 to a family of 4. John and I were overjoyed second-time parents and that also meant G was now a Big Sister. We had been talking about the arrival of “brother” for months and months, and as soon as she met him in the hospital, he quickly became her new favorite doll.
I’m now a mom of two and it’s certainly hard to express how blessed and thankful I feel. There is nothing in the whole world like holding this perfect child in my arms for the very first time. This little boy has stolen my heart!
