Love the reactions of your family in that photo! So cute!
26 weeks!!!!! Oh my, it's going so fast, weeks are truly rushing by! Thankfully I'm am pretty well organised now, midwives appointment tomorrow will get lots of forms I'm sure. Dh is coming along too which is exciting as he's never been able to come to any of my antenatal appointments before.
Older DS seems to be doing better with the news today. He still tears up once in awhile and tells me that he wants it to be a girl "because we already have enough daddies". And then I tear up and try to sound convincing when I say that he is going to love having this new little brother just as much. It's hard, no doubt, but even with DS feeling like he does and being the tender-hearted perfectionist that he is, I know time will be a great healer for his disappointment.
Graci, the thing I am struggling with most is the reaction I get from people when they hear the news. It would be much easier to adjust to the idea of raising three boys if people didn't act like I need their sympathies. I wish the response were more celebratory.
