"Hello I'm your brother, I know you're in there"

Channie asked me if "Willy T would be black like Joesph or pink like her?"
Cullen puts toys on my belly for baby Willy to play with.
Cooper kisses him every morning and every night.
As we're all watching a movie or wrestling on the bed we always say "be careful
of baby Willy...."
He is here all around us. His presence is alive and well among us.
He is my son already and he has a house-full of brother's and sister's waiting on his
"big day..."
But he's already here. It' s so amazing for to me to carry his life.
To already feel so protective of him.
To throw open the blinds and let the sun shine heavy on him and him to respond with movement.
To wake up in the middle of the night and worry about him.."Did I feel him move?"
To laugh when he gets the hiccups for the 3rd time that day.
To read him a book. To feel the pangs of hunger and think he is hungry too.
To be singing at church and to know by the way he moves that he loves my voice.

My thoughts are all wrapped up in him most of the day.
We have 12 weeks before we meet and I get to look into those beautiful eyes, yet I've already met him here in our home. I've already fallen in love.........

Motherhood is so amazing.

I know exactly what you mean and I too am experiencing it!! I am really not sure how much my little Levi actually understands, but it is so wonderful for him to come up to me and pull my shirt up and say "Hagen, mommy". It is the most wonderful feeling to have them want to "talk" to the little brother they are still waiting to see!! :)

Babies are such a blessing. They are a gift right from the gracious hands of the Lord.

When I consider our children, I think how undeserving I am to be blessed when I make so many mistakes. But God is so gracious.

I can't wait to meet your little Willy!

I love you descriptions of pregnancy. Isn't it the most glorious time? I only know pregnancy, our baby was stillborn. But it was the best 8 months of my life!
