goodbye to our life as a family of 3
I am getting so close to my due date now and am feeling both excited and nervous. Excited to meet the sweet little girl that I have already fallen in love with and nervous because it will be a huge change that I am worried Scarlett will struggle with. For so long Scarlett has been the centre of this family with every bit of our attention on her. The three of us have made an amazing team and I have had the best 2.5 years of my life living my life for Scarlett. I will never forget these years with her.
Now things will be very different for us. This new chapter of our lives will be so full of love and joy but it will also bring a lot of change. I find myself up at night worrying about how Scarlett is going to handle this change and it breaks my heart when I think of her feeling jealous of the baby. We will be doing everything we can to ensure Scarlett knows that she is still loved as much as she was before. Only time will tell how she will feel and I know that soon she will be the best big sister.
Another thought has recently occurred to me; this will be my last pregnancy. We have chosen to stop at two and this has brought on some strange emotions for me. As you know, I don't love being pregnant and I found myself wishing the time away throughout this whole pregnancy. Now with less than two weeks to go, I'm realizing that this period of time spent growing life inside of me will never happen again. This fact brings on very mixed emotions for me but has also made me realize how time really does fly and you will regret it if you don't spend these moments being present.
So, with nothing but love in my heart, I am spending these last precious few days saying goodbye to this beautiful chapter of our lives.
I had the pleasure of meeting with a beautiful family the other day who blessed us with their talents in photography. They are a very talented team and when they sent me these photos I was brought to tears because these images reflect my emotions so well right now. This chapter of life, this last pregnancy, these last adventures of just Scarlett and I. All of these things are reflected in these images and I couldn't think of a better way to say goodbye to this time then to share these photos. You can check out their work on Instagram and their website.
