Life With Two

It's going to be pretty different, I imagine, this life-to-be with two children. Marion's just about walking, and she'll have a younger sibling that won't even be able to hold their own head up for a while. My full-time-fathering, which has gone on for six months now, has become pretty stable. I feel like I have things under control, I've learned the ropes, and I can do things now that I wasn't able to do a couple months ago.

It's all going to get a big shake-up soon. Our baby is telling Keleigh that it's almost time, and the baby's the one that decides. Due dates are just guesses, this baby is coming when they're ready. And I'm excited.

I'm ready for the challenge, I'm ready for the new patterns, and I'm ready to be a daddy to two. I'm excited about meeting our new baby, and having them as an 'outside' part of this family. What could be more exciting than meeting your new child? There's a new person coming into this world, someone that was created by Keleigh and I. What an amazing thing to do...create humans.

I'm so excited. I'm here to help in any way that I can, to help Keleigh give birth. This baby's coming, and I'm here to catch it. The birthing pool is inflated and hanging out in the guest room, all the birth supplies are in the closet next to our room, and there's a list of things to do before and after the birth on the closet door.

Marion's ready too, as ready as she can be. She gets to hang out with her sibling while she nurses, so she's already sharing space with them, and lying close. She gives Keleigh's belly kisses. She loves to look at other babies. She's gonna be a great big sister. She has lots of fun to share too.
