|My Family Today|
It's just that we have created this world; just the three of us - and it's all we've known for what seems like forever. In reality though, it's only been two short years. Ten years down the line this stage as a family of three will be a tiny blip on our timeline. It's so strange to think that someday it will be hard to remember life before bug (as it is now to recall life before Leo). That makes me want to soak up these last moments.
I am mourning a bit some of the things we will be giving up - mostly the one on one time and undivided attention that Leo gets. But the more I think about it - while it is true that we cherish those moments we each get with one another, we are all happiest when we are all together. I think that will still be true when we are a foursome.
Not to mention all that we will gain. Especially Leo. jb and I both cherish our siblings - and I really think that Leo is going to be a fantastic big brother. I just know that they will love each other so much - I think they already do. I already get so much joy just imagining them playing together, helping each other and being their own kind of team - I can't wait to witness it in person.
So even though I know that ultimately all these changes (while possibly presenting some challenging transitions) will be positive for our family, I'm still trying to savor these last days of just the three of us.
