Well it's officially time to share some exciting news....
This coming April there will be another plump juicy Ojibirish baby joining our family.
I'm 15+ weeks along now and have had quite a while to wrap my head and heart around this news. The little one growing inside is already the size of an apple, fully formed and dancing around in there. I think we were very vocal about how Oisín was going to be our last child, about how he was going to be "THE BABY" of our family. And I can't lie, part of me felt guilty at first when I realized he was being stripped of his title at such a young age because he is in fact still a baby. At least to me he is.
But then I thought about how lucky our kids are to have one another, and how it's really a beautiful thing to watch them growing up together. There is something so special about their relationships, something that will hopefully serve them well for many many years to come. Something that I don't even get to fully be a part of but have experienced first hand with my own brother. Something I am now honored to witness as it unfolds between the siblings in this family we've created. Perhaps Oisín's role as "the baby" isn't as important as I thought it was.
I know for a fact that there is room for one more in my heart and it looks like there is still a spot left on the porch, so come on little apple your orchard is waiting for you.
P.S. I totally hope it's a boy.
