Diary of an Incubator: The Firstborn

Six days 'til our new bubba is due and I'm feeling a bit sad.

It's not because I don't want to welcome a new member of our family.  I can't wait to have newborn snuggles.

It's because my precious time with just my firstborn is coming to an end.  It will no longer be just me and Rory going on adventures together.  My main concerns during this pregnancy have been how he will cope with that.

I'm not regretting giving him a sibling - he will benefit greatly from learning he is NOT the centre of the universe.  I just want to make the most of these remaining days.  Sometimes they have been difficult, but they have been precious.

Without my "little" Bro life would´ve been way more peaceful, way more boring and way, way tougher.
My Brother is my best friend, so yay for Rory being a big Brother now (I think I understand your concerns, though).
Congrats for being a family of four!
