Big Brother Joey

It doesn't seem like I'm almost in my eighth month of pregnancy. I had planned to have so much more done by now! It's bringing on the reality that she''ll be here before we know it.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how this is going to change Joey's life as he knows it. He'll have to share attention and toys, wait for me to tend to his needs if I'm busy with Hayley, and share the spotlight with Hayley when guests come visit. 

Is he going resent me for no longer being the only one?

All of my attention and energy goes to him. He is my #1, my little man, my cuddle bug. I hope I don't lose sight of his needs and let him down. I hope he doesn't take out his frustrations on Hayley. I hope he doesn't get frustrated in the first place, but I know it's going to happen.

I hate that he's going to have to adjust so much at such a young age. Will he understand? Will he love Hayley? Will he still cuddle with me before bed time or will we lose that bond?

I know I'm doing a lot of thinking and worrying, but I think every mom in my situation has these thoughts. I wish I could talk to him and prepare him for this upcoming change but I don't think he will understand just yet.

Shoving a cookie in his mouth! I love that he looks like he's just seen something very alarming lol 

My cuddle bug <3 I love when he falls asleep on the couch with me!
