Ahhhh…big change in the air for the Parks family! Another baby is on the way in less than a month.
No, not me!
This is my sister in law. We are married to brothers, and I am lucky enough to say she is my very good friend too.
My daughter and their daughter are only 9 months apart, and I love that we can get together lots and watch the kids grow up together.
Now, the first time around they found out they were having a girl. This time–they are having a SUPRISE! I love that. I didn’t find out either time I was pregant (yes, I know–there are 2 types of people in the world, those that find out, and those that don’t), but I am shocked that they are not because my sis-in-law is a big planner! I am happy they aren’t though, as I love a good suprise baby (and I have hand me downs for them either way)!
When she asked me to pop over today and grab some belly shots and shots with little “E,” I was excited. I can remember this feeling all too well. Really, it’s like it was yesterday. Before Jax was born, I had supreme Mama anxiety over changing Marlie’s life. I loved us just the way we were, but I knew we’d all love this new baby like crazy. I soaked in every second with her at the end of the pregnancy with Jax like it was my job, knowing we would truly never have THIS again. And we don’t have THAT anymore, ….but we have something better now.
I am so blessed to be able to snap this moment in time for my neice–and for Mommy. You can’t get it back, and you really never want to, but it’s nice to always remember it.
So we went over for a yummy Valentine’s Day breakfast complete with heart shaped Jello, and we celebrated family LOVE!
Love you! Can’t wait until Baby Parks makes their way into this world.
