The night before

Tomorrow is the big day we welcome our second princess into the world. And when I say tomorrow I really mean today as it is midnight and I am still wide awake. 

Thoughts on my mind ... 

I know every mom and dad who is welcoming the 2nd child wonders if they'll have enough love for both. 
I have no doubt loving each girl the same... I worry about spending enough time with both. 

-Still have some last minute packing to do for me. 

- nervous about leaving Amelia for a couple of nights... I haven't left her but once and she was pretty much in bed when I left. And I was back home by 8am
- praying I recovery quickly

-hope Amelia isn't scared tomorrow/today when she sees me :/

-anxious to know we have a heathy little girl and wonder what she looks like! 
-can't wait to see Amelia's face when she sees sister! I will have to remind Deric to take Amelia's photo when he comes out with Aliza! 

- pray Amelia understands and at peace with why I can't hold her. 

-going to be hard not having my side of the family here with us tomorrow/today.  But they will be here Sunday. 

As I tucked our big girl into bed tonight I snuggled a little closer and stayed much longer after she fell to sleep. I can't believe the has come to welcome another baby. Our life is filled with so much joy with our Diva and I can't imagine what we will feel like tomorrow. I am in awe of how much Amelia understands about the whole deal. I just pray she stays excited and happy about sister!  She says she is going to tell sister first that she loves her and that she is the big sister! My heart melted when she said she was going to tell her "I love you, sister" first!! 

Here is a photo I snapped while in her bed tonight! The flash was super bright for her eyes! ;) 

I will update with a photo as soon as I can tomorrow! :)
