People ask me often if I think Wes understands he’s going to be a big brother. As much as a 2.5 year old can, I say. It is sweet the way he knows her name and sometimes kisses my belly with the intention of giving her a kiss. He sometimes includes her in his prayers at night and, when asked, says yes of course he’ll be a big helper when she comes. We’ll see about that last one. Wes really likes babies generally and it’s so sweet, but I have no doubt that our transition will be incredibly hard.
In other news this week, BA2 is starting to do that thing where she presses on me with a body part. Like she’s just trying to make sure the boundaries are real and she really can’t get out yet. Her schedule has changed. She used to move a lot in the evening but she’s more active in the morning and afternoon now. All this movement makes it more fun.
