The Middle Child

The middle child!

My little Emily D is super excited to be getting a baby brother, she tells any one who will listen all about it. Everyday I get asked if he’s coming out yet and that she’s going to give him a bunch of kisses.

I don’t know if it’s the age gap or personality or maybe a bit of both but when I was pregnant with Emily my oldest Adalynn was barely two when she was born and she never acknowledged I was pregnant. Once Emily was born it was just like meh, mom has a baby now. So to be getting this type of excitement this time around makes me that much more excited.

Little does Emily know this will put her in the middle child category. I don’t know if and how it will change her, she has been the baby for four years! Right now the only thing I predict is though these days she likes doing things on her own and likes to refer to herself as a big girl even though she still expects help with things like eating and she is quick to act helpless when it suits her, so that part may get worse when she’s feeling left out because of the baby.

I was told by a fellow mom that switching from one to two kids was actually harder than two to three because the first two start helping each other out more and playing well because they realize that all they’ve got is each other when mom is busy with baby. I’m fingers crossed that’s how it works out for me.

As a family we can’t be more thrilled to be adding a boy to the mix! With that, I’m not going to be intimidated by all those boy moms out there telling me dressing a boy isn’t as fun as a girl because girls just have cuter stuff! I believe that is entirely not true and I’m kinda over the hot pink tutus!

One thing I’m loving on lil ones are the Freshly Picked moccasins! They are super cute and I heard from friends they are made to last! I’ve received a pair for baby boy that are oh so cute and can’t wait to put on his little baby feet and I also got a super cute pair for Emily so she can rock out and match little bro. She’s been wearing them non stop since I received them and on a four year old they really are durable!

I’m super in love with these moccasins that I’m doing a giveaway on any pair of your choosing over on my Instagram! Also Freshly Picked is having a Black Tuesday sale on November 22 starting 10am MST that lasts 24 hrs and offers 25% off the entire site! This sale only comes around twice a year!!
