Mommy ouch???

The other day I was using my doppler and Myles kept insisting, "Choo-choo...choo-choo." There was something that stopped me from saying the word baby. I don't know why. But today I just jumped right in with both feet when he gave me the opening...

Myles(spying my belly stretch marks): "Mommy...ouch? hurt?"

Me: "Nope, no ouch. You know why my belly looks like that?"

Myles: "Why?"

Me: "There's a baby in there."

Myles(eyes wide in disbelief): "No."

A few minutes later...

Me: "Myles tell Sam about Mommy's belly."

Myles: "No."

Sam: "Myles is there a baby in Mommy's belly?"

Myles(hesitantly): "Uh-huh."

A few minutes later...

Me: "Myles tell Daddy about Mommy's belly."

Myles(enthusiastically): "Baby!"

There's no turning back now. *gulp*

Gulp! Good for you, C...I'm guessing that step in courage was exceedingly difficult, even as you are striving to somehow strike an impossible balance between "normal" optimism, for the sake of the boys, and sheer panic! I'm just hoping and praying that soon (well, not TOO soon!) Sam and Myles will be holding a sibling as sweet and precious (aren't they all??) as our new little Madelyn! :)
