How much longer?

Now that I am settled and getting back into the routine of life I am wondering if I can make it two more months before having this baby. Yesterday I hit the "I can't do this any more" wall. Josh just looks at me in bewilderment and questions what choice I have. Our dear friends gave us their crib and it is now set up in "the boys room." Caleb is looking forward to the new baby too. Lately, in anticipation of the baby's arrival Caleb has told me the following:

"When Andy is born he is going to have to run and go poop in the potty."

"When is Andy going to crawl out?"

Caleb: "When Andy is born I am going to teach him how to walk."
Me: "When he is born he will be really little so you will have to wait until he gets bigger to teach him."
Caleb: "Don't worry, I will teach him gently."

"My baby brother isn't going to cry because he is a boy."

I think we are in for an adventure if I can make it through these next few months.

Caleb is so funny! He brings a totally different perspective to babies. Sounds like he'll be an amazing helper though!!

You can do can do it! Andy is a great name. Is it short for Andrew? I'm excited for you. Just think, you ONLY have two months left. That's better than three!

The last stretch is sooo slow motion! But soon you will have your hands very full of excitement! Just plant yourself in a recliner with a slurpee and wait it out:)

Caleb must be a sweet boy. Keep that baby in you for a little while. We had our first 2 months early. You don't want that, it stinks!

What a cutie! I think it's great that he even cares. My kids couldn't have cared less about Micah joining our family. They are a big ego-centric, my kids.
