The second time around there are less worries about how to do things and what will happen and more worries about how Everett will hold up and what our family of four will look like. This delivery has lots of uncertainty - especially like what in the world are we having and what will be his/her name?! I think because we don't know those details it has been a little harder for me to connect with the baby. That's not to say I'm not excited and won't be totally and completely smitten with our little one... it's just different.
BUT - now that all my lists are checked off, I am getting excited for this baby to come. With Everett, my water broke in Walmart (you can read his birth story here). I was grocery shopping last night (at Walmart) and suddenly thought maybe I shouldn't be there alone for fear of a repeat. haha. I'm wondering how and when this baby will show up and if it will be as surprising as Everett. I've started wondering what he or she will look like and if they will be like Everett. I've started to get excited about having a tiny little baby to curl up on my chest again and all the awesome-ness that comes with sweet new life.

So now, we wait. Come on baby --- we can't wait to love you!
