The Things I'll Miss

Friday brings a whole new life for our family, in more ways then an actually life addition. It brings drastic changes to our everyday. I keep thinking of the things I'll miss with only having one child, a child at times I can't get enough of cause he is all of me, he completes me.

Like, laying in bed in the morning watching TV, he lays beside me and randomly rolls over, throws his arm around my neck, says "Mom" and gives me a big kiss. He'll lay there a sec and I'll say thank you, I love you Buddy, or driving in the car and having our time, singing to the radio, watching for buses, trucks and horses. It's our chill time and we hang like best friends. There are so many more times when it's just him and me and now it's going to be him, me and a little brother who's going to have to share the time.

I know in a couple years his brother will mean the world to him, but our world has completely revolved around Asa and his needs for the past 4 years, it's going to be a tough balance at times. I hope I can be the Mom that can give it all and then still have the energy to give a little more.

I will post pictures as soon as I am able.


  1. It's just twice the love all around...your love for them, their love for you, and their love for each other! Until they start kicking the snot out of each other. LOL

  2. I hope everything went well for you this past Friday. I know Asa is going to be a wonderful big brother! I can't wait to see pictures of the little one :)

I dream of many things and one is a life full of acceptance, achievement and success for my Super Hero son Asa. He's got extra good stuff that comes with a little thing called Down syndrome.
