37 Weeks

So I am 37 Weeks a long now in my pregnancy and my C-Section is coming up quick! I have mixed feelings as I write about my pregnancy chalkboard and our last week as a family of 3.  
The only thing I have ever wanted was to be a mother! I was able to finally have that desire come true 2 years ago with little miss Mallory. My second wish was to be pregnant! I wanted to be able to know what it felt like to carry a child! My wish came true about 9 months ago when Invetro finally worked for us! I am extremely grateful that the Lord has blessed me in being able to grow my family in 2 very special ways! As my first and probably only pregnancy comes to a close, I am starting to feel real emotional. I'm so happy I was able to carry our 2nd child but he did ruin my belly! Ha! No, what I'm feeling is the new responsiblity of a 2nd child and how it will effect Mallory. I pay so much attention to her. I'm worried that she won't feel like I'm there for her anymore because I will be paying so much attention to Colton. I'm hoping that Mallory will welcome Colton into our family and love on him like she does her baby dolls! I know things will turn out great and eventually run smooth! It will be an adventure for sure! Thats all I want to share for sure, I can't handle thinking about all this change anymore!
Please excuse my picture this week! I was feeling very fat and swollen and had no desire to put on make-up or do my hair this week!!!
