My kids are in no way, shape or form perfect.

But one thing they do really well together is play!

I remember before Grayson was born, praying that Ilana would learn how to share. I also prayed that they'd be more than just siblings, but also friends.

I remember the endless days of teaching her how to share, take turns, and find things to do that would be interesting, fun and safe for her and Grayson. (That's a tall order for a then 2 and a half year old!)

Wow, they have paid off!

I am extremely thankful that my two crazy kids are wonderful playmates for each other. Sure they have their moments - they're siblings! This time around, I'm looking forward to watching them include their baby sister too. I'm sure it's going to be amazing to watch.

I'm officially full term. This baby girl could come any day and it would be fine. I find myself nesting constantly and continually tweaking this home to be ready for our newest addition. All the clothes and gear are washed, the carseat is installed and my hospital bag is packed. It still blows my mind that we're about to welcome another human being into our family and completely fall in love all over again in the blink of an eye.

These are ALL Beautiful photos of two BEAUTIFUL children that are GOOD FRIENDS! The wonderful thing is that they will have EACH OTHER to play with while you are feeding, changing, bathing a newborn baby girl. A big difference from when Ilana had to entertain herself while you took care of Grayson. You are BLESSED beyond measure to have such wonderful kids! I am thankful! Love and hugs,

Just found your blog through Hello Hue and love the warmth and spirit here. I wonder if you have had your daughter yet? You seem so prepared, emotionally and physically! I'm due with my second baby on Jan 30 and am definitely enjoying the days of just one little girl who eats what I eat, understands what I say, etc. I totally get it!

This makes me happy Heather. I see SMALL glimpses of this in my future every so often with Chloe & April. It's given me hope to read :)
