We talked to Nathan over the weekend about him getting another sibling.
Mommy: "Nathan, do you know we're getting another baby?"
Nathan: "A baby sister!?"
Mommy: "No, buddy, a baby brother."
Nathan: "I don't want another brother."
In Nathan's defense, Micah has required more than any baby's fair share of time and sacrifice. Nathan has had to make lots of sacrifices this year. His brother has spent 3 months in the hospital. We were stuck at home before Micah's heart surgery and couldn't go anywhere around other people (and it was too cold to go to the park).
It's difficult for a 3-year-old to understand that not all baby brothers take Mommy and Daddy away from home, etc. So I guess the proof will be in the pudding for him.
By the way... as soon as the schedule at my OB's office comes out, we'll be scheduling the c-section for the first week of February.
