This Is What Almost 9 Months Looks Like...

Pregnancy brings about so many feelings that run through your mind.  
I couldn't believe we were having our 5th.  Number five! 
It seemed surreal.  I have always wanted a lot of kids, but wanting and living it are two very different things. But, I wish I could of saw what today would look like back then.  
I was excited to be pregnant and knew he or she would be great, but I didn't realize how great.  I didn't realize that I would finally have that "she is my last one so I am going to enjoy everything" feeling.  I didn't feel sad as I nursed my 4th child for the last time.  Maybe I knew.  I knew he wouldn't be my last.

And now I enjoy my moments.  She is up all night, but before long she won't be.  And when I nurse her for the 4th time in the middle of the night, I am all too aware that my nursing days are numbered.  I think back 14 years when my mom sat with me while I nursed my first child and said how great it is. And I took it for granted.  

The funny thing is that even at their young ages, the older 4 seem to understand that she is our last baby and they enjoy her everyday.  They cherish her laughs, they all want to hold her and maybe they already understand what I didn't in my early adulthood.  And for that and for this little girl, we are all blessed.
