Lucas: You have been proving to be the absolute best/funniest big brother. The other day you poked Lillie gently and declared you were “listening to her brain”.

Lillie: We are in newborn heaven with you. My little dream baby – you nurse, sleep, poop, and stare at us with wide eyed doe eyes. It can’t get any better.

MY KIDS! These shots were taken at 10pm on the first night we were all home together as a family. Life is pretty darn good and I’m feeling so very blessed.

Lucas: The last week of just you and I, kid. You are proving to be the best big brother!

Lillie: This is our last bump portrait taken at exactly 39 weeks. I was in early labor here with contractions coming in at 8-10 minutes apart. You were born the next day!

Lucas: Your dad and I bought you a turtle blimp as a “big brother” gift and I can’t wait to see your reaction when you open it. I’m keep imaging  how it will be when you meet your sister for the first time and it’s just going to be so surreal seeing the two of you together. Soon my love!

Bebe: We are about to enter the one week countdown and we just can’t wait to have you in our arms. Braxton hicks are in full effect as is heart burn and back pain. You are getting ready for your debut and with each practice contraction I feel one step closer to you.

Lucas: You’ve been calling me “mamaaaaaaa” instead of “mommyyyyy” lately in the sweetest, most adorable voice and well…what can I say except you know how to make me melt.

Bebe: 2 weeks and 4 days left until your due date my sweet little one! There’s a full moon at the end of the month and I’m wondering whether you will make an early appearance.

Lucas: You are asking when the baby is coming. Sometimes you announce “in 3 hours mama!” (which freaks me out!) and other times you are right on the ball with “3 weeks!”.

Bebe: Your movements are becoming more wave like rather than vigorous kicking and the doctor assured me all is well..you just don’t have as much room anymore in your comfy, temporary home. 36 weeks and counting!

Lucas: Yesterday you stuck a blanket up your shirt and announced that your baby sister was in your belly and she was kicking and tumbling. You also said you were very comfortable which led me to believe you really know nothing about pregnancy ;).

Bebe: I checked my pregnancy app today and kind of almost lost it when I read “4 weeks, 4 days left”. Time is flying and everyone is anxious, excited, and so ready to meet you baby girl.

Lucas: My threenager – you still have tender, baby moments that I cherish. You still drink your morning and night milk from a bottle and although I know it’s time to take it away I can’t help but get all emotional. It feels as though it’s one of the last “babyish” things left about you. We registered you for pre-k last week and you are truly becoming such a big boy.

Bebe: You’re as big as a honeydew melon and we have 6 weeks left to go. Apparently you’re going to be packing on the pounds. Take it easy on your mama sweet girl!

Lucas: This weekend you got a little taste of being a big brother. My dear friend spent the weekend with us with her beautiful 11 month old baby. There were a few pinches and pokes but overall you were curious and excited.

Bebe: 7 more weeks to go! Strangers have been coming up to me saying things such as “you look like you are ready to pop!” “due any day now!”. I get all worked up and think we still have a ways to go but in actuality we are going to meet you SO SOON!

Lucas: You are warming up to the idea of your baby sis which makes my heart just want to explode with happiness. When I picked you up from school this week your teacher told me that you were announcing to your class “mommy has a baby girl in her belly!”.

Bebe: I feel your kicks and jabs more than ever now and tums have become my best friend. You are a wiggly princess!
