The Last Day With Just Two!
It is just amazing. Tomorrow morning we check in to the hospital to have our 3rd and final child. Although we have been talking about this new addition to Kaitlyn and Caden for months now, and they have said prayers for their new brother, and they have seen us begin to prepare for Colt's arrival, they haven't really put it all together......UNTIL NOW!
The kids tonight seem to be as nervous as we are about the process. Tonight after we put the kids in bed Caden gets out crying and just wants to be held. So I hold him on the couch. Not two seconds later Kaitlyn is in my lap too. Really it was a sweet moment as we were all under the covers holding each other. Really that is the last time that I will snuggle with just the two of them. It was a moment that I will truly cherish.
Now with all of the mushy part out of the way....my little girl lightened up the moment. As we were all really getting comfortable and snuggling...she proclaims..."Somebody stinks." Caden says, "Not me." Well I had just returned from my evening run and was sweating buckets......then Kaitlyn says..."Daddy you smell like a skunk....did you get sprayed by a skunk tonight?" The sweet moment was now gone....for a couple of minutes anyways. I put them both back in bed, gave kisses, and then Kailtyn tells me,"Daddy, you give the best hugs." I just melted. Then she tells me she doesn't want to be a mommy. Of course I am worried to ask why..but I do...and the response was too cute. She says,"because I want to stay a little girl..and I don't even know how to drive."
The point is this.....I know my kids get what is going to happen tomorrow. It is amazing. We all have questions. What will life be like with 3? Where will Colt sit at the dinner table? Who will hold his hand when we say the blessing? How will we get all of us up and around? I know the next few months will be exciting. Pray for Steph that she does well tomorrow. Pictures will be posted soon.
