The big day is only 7 days away! In case you haven’t heard, we’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of our 2nd child, Macy Kate. As we prepare to welcome Macy into our world, I began to think about the ways my life will change. Here’s what I know so far:
Our life is fun.More life means more fun, right?
Jerry Seinfeld said it best when he said, “Having a 2-year-old is like having a blender with no lid.” Even in the chaos, we’ve managed to create a semi-normal life in our home. We’ll call it our ecosystem. Now, I’m not a scientist, but I know that it is dangerous to throw a new living thing into an existing ecosystem. That one additional creature totally changes the ecosystem. That’s what we’re doing by bringing home another baby. We have developed routines and habits that will likely be changed by this new life. This new life will take center stage at 2 a.m. just as much as it does at 2 p.m.! But with new life comes new excitement! I’m looking forward to adding even more life to our already fun and full lives.
I love my wife more than anything on earth. Maggie is right behind her. And now we get to add Macy to the mix.
As a husband, I’m looking forward to loving my wife and caring for her needs as a mom of 2. As a daddy, I’m looking forward to showing my daughters how much I love their mother and how much I love them. I’m also looking forward to teaching them how to reflect Christ’s love in their world. And in addition to all of that, I’m looking forward to watching love develop between Maggie and Macy as sisters. This is a new love for our house, so it should be exciting to watch it develop.
sharing love with another child and teaching her to love by the way I . I’m excited because we, as parents, will get to show our love for her and teach her to love. But I’m even more excited to watch love play out between her and Maggie as sisters.
