32 weeks down, only 8 or less to go!
As we are nearing our due date (July 28th!), the reality is starting to slowly sink in…soon we will have another son here to love and care for! I am so excited! I often think of how Liam and Gideon will grow up together and get to be the best of buds.
I’ve had people ask me if I’m concerned about how Liam will react (negatively) to having another baby in the house. Honestly, when I think of adding another kiddo to our family, I only have positive thoughts. Although I’m sure there will be some challenges along the way, I expect it to be a great transition! Growing up, my siblings were my best friends (and still are). We had our normal sibling squabbles every now and then, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. We got to spend every day together and would share the most exciting adventures. I have heard it said that the best gift you can give your child is a brother or sister, and I am excited to give Liam that gift (and hopefully a couple more after this one)!
The other night, while saying our bedtime prayers, Liam said “Gideon” for the first time while we were praying for him. It completely melted my heart. Now he’ll pat my belly and say “Baby Gideon” every once in a while. So precious.
It is very exciting to think that within the next couple of months our little guy Gideon will be here!
