Lately I've been trying to really savor my last few days alone with Riley. I'm excited for Beck's arrival, but I love the times I have with just Riley. Sometimes I wish we had waited so I could have more time with just her... Other times I'm so happy we didn't. Either way, I am looking forward to being a mommy of two. I'm looking forward to the challenge of balancing four schedules instead of three. I'm looking forward to Riley gaining a new friend. I'm looking forward to having a son and getting to know him.

Part of me wants the next 7 weeks to fly by because I'm ready to meet my little boy and bring him home. The other part of me wants them to go by slowly because I'm enjoying my time with Riley. Especially now that she's a toddler.

I feel so blessed to be able to spend everyday with my daughter and soon with my son as well.

I had hoped to have my kids a year or two apart, but when I had the twins it was double the blessings. You are going to have such a great time with Riley and Beck. Watching her interact with her new baby brother will be a treat in itself.

I hear the alone time. Precious. Once you (and Riley) look into your baby's eyes, I think it will all fall together :) Giddy!!

P.S. I have an award for you on my blog. Come by to "pick it up" when you can!
