First thing for bebe

Friends who are moving away in a week, (the same friends who I lent the breastpump and feeding cushion to), just gave us their infant car seat for this baby. It’s brand new and onloy been in a car a handful of times as their daughter outgrew it at 4 months old. Very thoughtful of them, but it felt weird. Now when I see if on the table in the kitchen it feels like it dosen’t belong. I keep thinking like, o they forgot their car seat, then I realize it’s meant for my growing baby.

I want to be as confident as Dave and everyone else, I am doing pretty good at relaxing but I am in a weird phase as I have said many times, I don’t feel really pregnant anymore, well I do, but just better, and I can’t feel the baby move yet, so it’s like easy to forget I am growing another child.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. (((((((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))))))))))))
    I can grok this (and yet not fully grok this, you know). But I want you to know: WE are gonna be positive for you, when you can’t be. When the weight is too big a burden, let us (your friends, collectively) carry it for you.
    I see you in three years, the proud mama of a cRaZy toddler-moving-into-preschooler and I know it’s gonna be a messy fun awesome love filled life you’re in. And one where Evan is cherished and loved and remembered. And where your new baby is cherished and loved and interacted with.
    I have faith, for you, because sometimes it is too hard to have faith for yourself and I remember those days. (Not the same, not the same at all, but… similar.)

  2. I know the feeling. I have TONS of clothes for this baby and I LOVE looking at them over and over again..but they just don’t feel like they are I wont need to use them..
    It’ll be okay. We’ll get to bring our babies home this time. Gotta stay positive 🙂

  3. I think I sort of understand. My friend T, whom I’ve mentioned a couple of times refused to set up her nursery or have a baby shower before her second was born. We ended up throwing what they call a “sprinkle” in the south where they do a sort of welcoming a couple weeks after babe is born. It’s pretty much a baby shower, just done after the baby arrives. I think it’s kind of fun to do it that way so everyone can welcome the new little one.
    I also can understand that it might be hard to get too excited-esp. when you understand there are dangers invovled.

    • Ya, that is what my wishes are as well, an after party, maybe a Valentines party as the baby should be just under a month old at that point. I just don’t want to tempt fate this time.
