The Night Before
Well, we are in Charleston and ready to head to the hospital first thing in the morning. It is such a surreal feeling. Adam and I keep on looking at each other like, "is this really happening? Are we about to go have our second child?" For some reason, this time around feels very different. Maybe we were a little ignorant about what we were getting into with Harrison. And things were amazing with Harrison, but we are both just a little nervous. And it has nothing to do with delivery, but everything to do with parenting two kids. We've been telling ourselves that people do it all of the time, so we'll be fine. We are also probably more excited too. We are so curious to see what this little boy looks like (although Harrison told us the other day that baby Fisher is going to have a donkey nose after I asked what he is going to do when he sees the baby for the first time). Even more, I can't wait to see how much he wants to be with Harrison in the coming months. As you can see from the picture above, Harrison is thrilled about baby Fisher entering this world. Today, when I told him why we were coming to Charleston, his response was "Momma have lap again?" So, maybe he doesn't totally get it, but whatever he grasps, I'm thankful for. Thanks for all of the prayers, text messages, and sweet phone calls everyone has sent our way. They are much appreciated.
