Tomorrow is the day that we will welcome Averi Jaye into our lives as our newest family member! We are all quite anxious and tired of waiting so long for her arrival. Arielle is very excited to be a big sister and meet her baby sister. She says nothing but good things about what is to come which absolutely amazes me and makes my heart flutter. She has yet to say anything negative about having a new baby in the family or show any doubt that this is a good change for us. I watch her play with her dolls and listen to how she talks to them and I have no doubt as well that she is going to be a loving, caring sister.

I feel as though I have been waiting forever to bring this baby into the world. Time goes so fast yet as I wait for something so big and life-changing I can't help but feel like the day is never going to come. I am thankful for the time I have had to spend with Arielle as an only child but very ready to start the next chapter of our lives with another child to love. I am worried about so many things, yet I feel as though I have gotten this far with one child that doing it all with another one will be a piece of cake. Some things will be different this time though, some big things. Like the fact that I have a four year old to look after and make sure I provide her with the same amount of love and attention that she is used to so she does not become resentful. Also, going back to work after 3 months instead of the 7 months that I had with Arielle is different and will be difficult to go through. Even with these things in mind, I am thinking positive and know I will give it my all so that is what matters the most.
