Making the most of Arthur!
Today I spent a lot of time thinking just how soon Arthur will not be an only child any more.
My pregnancy is flying by, I’m almost half way already. This is, at least partly I’m sure, due to the fact that I have Arthur keeping me very busy!
I am writing this post, I guess, as a reminder to myself, to really make the most of enjoying Arthur as he is now. My special little guy. He’s growing so fast and as much as he, of course throws toddler tantrums he really is a lovely boy. So affectionate and so funny.
I know that come August his little world is going to be turned upside down.
This makes me both excited and a little worried!
Every night we put Arthur to bed, Mark and I will always make some sort of comment about Arthur being awesome. Not deliberately, like some weird mantra thing! It just comes out!
I am excited that, after not so long he will have his own little play mate! I know that he will be a wonderful big brother and will love the company!
I worry that he will feel left out when his little brother or sister arrives. We will, of course, do all we can to make sure that’s not the case!
I also feel sad that I won’t be able to give all my attention to Arthur like he has now. I already feel guilty for this. I know really though that although it will be hard, it will be good for him to learn to be a little more independent, to learn to share me with someone else.
But for now, I want to count my lucky stars for the time I have already had, and the time I will have just Arthur and I. For the time we spend as the three of us!
I’ll be sure that this time is spent making the most of Arthur!
