Bits and pieces of the life I share with my little family who I love to BITS & PIECES!

I don't have a 25 week pic, but here are two from 24 weeks. I swear it's grown a TON since these were taken!
I'm so far behind in blogging! I finally uploaded some pictures last night so I just need to organize some posts and get them up!
I wrote a post on my first blog when I was 25 weeks pregnant with Lucy about some of my fears. I hadn't thought about it in ages, but just in the last week or so I've started WORRYING. It's funny how it's hit at exactly the same time it did last time.
This time, I'm worried about Lucy mostly. There have been several people (2 of which are from 3 girl families) who've said that the first and third are really close but that the middle daughter is the "odd girl out". I want all 3 of my girls to be close. I'm not naive, I know that there will be bumps and that there will be times when any given 2 may be closer, but I hope that WHICH two it is is more of a fluid thing and that there isn't EVER one of them who feels like she doesn't fit in.
I'm so totally over any disappointment about not having a boy (even though I do still feel badly for Jim), and I'm SO VERY EXCITED to have another girl to watch movies with, bake with, craft, paint nails etc. I never dreamt our lives would turn out like this and I feel so incredibly blessed. I just so badly want them to have a strong relationship/bond/love for each other!
I still have moments of shock, and there are still times I feel like I'm too old and/or I'm going to be SO very overwhelmed with 3 littles, but I must admit that the feelings of excitement at meeting her are beginning. I'm not a person who usually goes ga-ga over babies in general, but my own...? Oh, I can't wait to smell her, snuggle her, feel the weight of her sleeping body on my chest... Heavenly! Most of all, I am so excited to watch Stella be a big sister again and this time she'll be able to do even more. We certainly have struck it rich!
