I had a pretty grumpy month or two. But I am feeling a lot better now. I am 22 weeks pregnant, and am starting to feel like I will actually get to take Mr Theodore home in April/May. I stopped trying to be in DDCs and that has reduced my stress a TON.

I was feeling hesitant about Theodore, maybe even a bit resentful. I can feel things changing for Peter already and it has been freaking me out. I can no longer nurse him, and he loved it SO much. With my SPD pain, I am limited to the activities I can do with him. But he is taking it so well! He loves his baby brother. Yesterday he was playing with trains and brought one to my belly for baby to play with. He also hasn't seemed to care about the changes, except the milk being gone. I think he is going to be ok

Aw I'm glad you're feeling more secure. I am too, now I worry about the baby being born early instead of worrying about losing him. Gotta worry about something I guess!
I'm glad little Peter is getting excited about being a big brother! Ethan is being really cute right now too asking to "snuggle with the baby in my tummy" whenever he wants some snuggle time. He'll come up to my tummy and rub it and say "Hi, Baby!" It makes me feel so good to watch how he's getting attached.
That's so cute that Peter brought Theodore a toy to play with!

I'm really glad you're feeling better! Peter sounds like a such a sweet boy... I don't know how you can stand the cuteness!

Erica I'm so glad that you are feeling better and I'm happy to have you here with us on this board!! I felt a bit like you when I was pregnant with Jacob. I was afraid that Jackson wouldn't have enough mommy time once Jacob was born, but Jackson loves his baby brother and he hasn't seemed to be jealous at all. I make it a point to always have some time each day to spend just with Jackson, even if it is just 10 minutes reading to him before I put him to bed. I let him know that he is still mommies special little boy, even if there is another special little boy in my life.
