It’s supposed to be easier the second time around. I’m supposed to worry less and be less concerned with each and every little thing that happens. And to some extent, I do.
But throughout my dear forever mom’s pregnancy with baby number two, I can’t help it. I care, so I worry. It’s as simple as that. Those who know me say I’ve been especially needy lately, but I’m not sure that’s an accurate portrayal of what is happening in my heart right now. My heart hurts with excitement and anxiety and joy and fear for my forever people, who will bring home a new little person in a few short months.
It’s not that unusual for me to assume position on mom’s lap the second dear baby Carter isn’t occupying the space. I still cram myself into the smallest crevice of space next to her on couches and chairs. And today, something happened that made my heart skip a beat.
I felt the baby. I had my head on mom’s tummy as we sat together in the afternoon sun while Carter napped. I was dreaming about something or another when it happened. I felt a kick. And another. And another. It startled me out of my sleep, that’s for sure.
I couldn’t help but feel a bit sentimental about when that happened with Carter all those months ago. It’s crazy to think about now that he’s a frolicking 14-month-old. And even crazier to think about what that tiny kicking little person will look like 14 months from now.
That’s when I realized I am doing it again. I care, so I worry. That’s why it’s not any easier the second time around. I worry now just as much as I did with dear baby Carter. Because she’s my person. My forever mom is just that – and she will always be my world.
I’m cherishing my time with her, and protecting her in the only way I know how. With my love. So what if they call me needy? These are special times around here, and I’m not going to miss a single minute of it.
I don’t think your being “needy” Wiles, I think you’re just a soppy romantic. You see your Mom and you look at her all doe-eyes and think, “Ahhh.” You see your forever Mom and Dad look at one another with love in their eyes, and you think, “Ahhh.” You see baby Carter smile or look angelic while he’s asleep and you think, “Ahhh.” That’s love, my four-footed friend. No one can take that away from you or them.
You are a wonderfully caring dog and believe me mum loves your snuggles as much as you do ! You keep looking after her and give more hugs and snuggles! ♥
*gulp* Is “needy” bad? I thought it was like “naughty” or “stubborn” or “lazy” or “spoiled” – they’re all GOOD things…. Right….?
Love and licks,
What a little cutie. What I wouldn’t give for a 25 week pregnant cuddle with you. Your pack is growing in size and its only natural to be concerned about the new additions arrival. Xxx
“Dear Wiley”, I’ve been missing your so much “tender stories” about the great/ beautiful love between “you and your lovely mommy”….”Of course Wiley”…I’m totally on your side on “this one” too, nothing to do with “needy” or “what ever” “anything” similar to “that”, what it is, is just that you and mommy are “so close to one an other”, that probably, what ever it is that mommy is going through, you will rapidly, and lovingly feel any hearty/visualized spot to go into immediately close to her, and just stand on her side for that…..”Are just the infallible laws of Love”, that goes nowhere uninvited, cause is a “LINK THAT DOESN’T NEED INVITATION”, it’s the power of God to draws together the “ELEMENTS OF THE WORDL”. So, there we go again, “Everything” is about….”LOVE,….LOVE,….,AND LOVE”,….”HURRAY!!”, …AND “BLESSINGS!!”.
“More love to you from “Over Here”, lovely Wiley”, and from your “unseen but friendly” Sweetie, and Candy too, from which I enjoy so much as well the same special love from your nature. “HUGS” .
