And So it Begins

Again.

I went through dinner, bath, bedtime last night being very weepy. Knowing that Today, MT would no longer be my one and only. As I left him at my parents house sleeping, I began to have such a rough time backing my car out of their driveway. Knowing that I was about to change his world forever and he had very little idea. He will wake up in the morning, the grandparents will tend to him ... And I will already be at the Hospital preparing for his little brothers' arrival.

They try to assure/comfort me with words. "He will be the greatest big brother", "Greatest Gift for a Child" Right now, All I can think about is how blessed we are, but how sad I am to be away from MT for Thanksgiving. It will be a few days before I will come home and get to be there for him. I hate that feeling ...... but I am amazed and inspired to be able to provide him with a sibling.

He may not ever remember the Thanksgiving I missed when he was 17 months old, But I Truly hope that He will Always remember/care/protect his younger brother .

And just like that, So it begins. I am off to do the unthinkable .........Again ... On such a week to show my appreciation and thanks ... Some may call it Ironic, I call it a Blessing. An outward sign to never forget the journey our family traveled to get here.

This is gonna be SOMETHING! Farah, you do a marvelous job as a mother and Armadillo is blessed, too, to join your awesome family. Much love and I can't wait to meet him.

Good luck, and I am sure everything will go well.

Elaine said...

Good Luck! Wishing you a healthy and safe delivery!

Love, love, love you, Farah! & I'm so excited to meet your new little one.

I can't know the feeling of leaving your first to have your second, but I can imagine it was difficult (it's hard leaving my one just to go to work for a few hrs). I'm sure there will be struggles, but in the end, you are an AMAZING mom to MT & will undoubtedly be an AMAZING mom to Armadillo too.

Of course, you need to have a girl next so you don't start feeling like you are living in a fraternity:-)

I know it must be hard... but you are right he will be a great big brother and he will love and appreciate the sacrifices you have made to make him one!

Jen said...

Farah, MT will be a wonderful big brother, you heart is correct, this is going to be strange for both of you for a little while, but the love that you all have for your whole family will make it all feel right!
Thoughts and prayers on this glorious day!

Malloryn said...

Best of luck to you! We can't wait to meet the little guy. It'll be an adjustment, no doubt, but MT will be a great brother.

Katie said...

Oh, Farah, I know you probably won't read this until afterward, but I want you to know that I am thinking of you all day long today.

Hugs to you, MT, E, and A.

I can't wait to "meet" the newest addition!

MT will love the Armadillo. :) You are the perfect mother for both of them.

Happy Armadillo Day!

Nurse Lochia said...

Good luck and I'm hoping for a safe and happy delivery for you and your new son!

Jill, Mommy of Tanner and Josie, our Clomid baby. :o) said...

OMG! SO EXICTED!!!! Best Wishes!!!!

Sugar and Ice said...

Good luck, Farah! You are all going to be so blessed in this addition to your family!

Before I had the twins, I almost went through a mourning period. I obviously wanted them, but I got so sad about the end of the era of just us and LG. It's been nothing short of wonderful since they arrived though. Children with siblings are truly blessed!

Adriane said...

Good luck today!! I will be thinking about you and Armadillo and MT. Of course he will make a wonderful big brother, but I totally understand your feelings. Your family is expanding and it is a little scary, but definitely a blessing. Happy Thanksgiving, girl!

Diana said...

Best of luck on a super easy and uneventful delivery. Congrats!!!

Mommy Shoes said...

Prayers for an easy delivery recovery and a wonderful Thanksgiving with your two boys (even if it is in the hospital).

Miss K said...

It's a wild ride, having 2 under 2, but I think the benefit is that they will never remember being an only child. They will only know a world where they had each other. Luke adores Emily and I know that you will have the same thing with your boys. Thinking of you!!

Photogrl said...

Wishing you lots of easy labor dust...

Holding you close in my thoughts and prayers, Farah.

((HUGS)) for all of you!

Amanda said...

Mr. Armadillo should be here any second (if he hasn't already made his appearance).

Of course this will be an adjustment for everyone, but MT will be fine. Both he and Armadillo are blessed to have such a wonderful caring and loving mother as you!!

(((hugs)))

Alex said...

Best wishes to you and your family. Happy Thanksgiving :)

Hopeful Terri said...

GOOD LUCK!!! - YOu, E, and MT will be great!! Enjoy your new blessing.

Lollipop Goldstein said...

Sending love and good thoughts for an easy delivery and happy first days.

HereWeGoAJen said...

The Armadillo is here safely! But I'll leave Farah to tell the rest of the details!

Congratulations, Farah!
