And soon enough we will not get any sleep and have a jealous little 18 month old. I am not really looking forward to sibling rivalry. Eric was 4 when Lily was born so his jealousy was a lot different then I expect Lily's to be. I realize things probably wont be exactly like I expect. But she is still a baby and wont know what is going on. I can only imagine what she will be thinking. ("Who is this tiny crying person that gets all the attention now? Why is he always attached to mommy? Why is daddy doing all the things mommy used to?")
Eric knows what to expect. I have talked to him many times about the new baby. He remembers what it was like when Lily was born. He is excited to have a brother.
I've been having contractions since 4:30 a.m. but they aren't very regular, they go between 10 to 5 minutes apart. I'm annoyed with keeping track of them now. They will hurt A LOT more when it is active labor anyway. I am going to try to nap with Lily while Eric is at school.
