it has begun. i started crying this morning about my sweet eve being a big sister in two days. my cuddle monster who lights up my life every single morning when i walk into her room just has no idea what is going on.

i just want to rock her all day long and whisper in her ear 'you'll always be my baby... no matter what. i'll never let you be the 'forgotten' middle child.'

gah. tears.

Believe it or not being a middle child has its advantages. We just never ever share that information with others. We prefer people to think we are deprived : )

I remember this feeling so well. When my second son was due, I felt this strong sense of loss as my due date approached - loss of something with my first son. As you know, of course, that bond doesn't change. Your love for Lily didn't change when Eve was born, and baby girl #3 will only add to the love. So excited to see the announcement about her arrival!

totally normal. when i had feelings like this, i kept reminding myself that a sibling is the best gift i could give. eve has a great big sis, two wonderful parents, and soon a baby to teach and entertain. :)

best wishes for the birth day!

I felt the same way too, but something about that third little one really made me feel totally complete last Christmas. It was like, finally we've made it, this is our family. Also, with #3 it just becomes so much more enjoyable because you know what you are doing, I wasn't near as tired or worn out feeling. Both big sisters are gonna enjoy her so much. Congratulations and a very merry Christmas.

with that kind of logic of the 'FORGOTTEN MIDDLE CHILD", what makes tim the "favorite"?.....actually when i read your post it made me a little sad, too. trust me, i love you all the same!

Froma truly forgotten middle child (like more than once, my parents accidentally left me places!) trust that we know the love is there - it's just that we middle children, by nature, are just not squeaky wheels that require as much attention

BEST WISHES ON THE BIG BIRTHDAY!

You are not alone :) #2 is due in just 3 weeks and I find myself crying at the thought of my sweet baby girl's life being completely turned upside down. Eve and my daughter are just about a month or so apart. Each moment I spend cuddling with Kinley is bittersweet, I am terrified that I will not be able to spend that kind of time with her with a newborn. It will be a huge adjustment and my heart just breaks for her... Ok now I'm crying again.
Being a mommy is hard work, you make it look so graceful and easy. I am sure the addition of baby girl #3 will multiply the love and happiness exponentially! Best wishes!

I'm going through this right now. I was kind of hoping that this one would be a girl so that Dean would always be my baby *boy.* But alas, he's going to be a big brother, too! I know that once the third shows up, it'll all fall into place. I'm sure you're experiencing that already. :)
