I can't believe we're at almost 7 months of pregnancy with baby #2. It seems like just yesterday we were looking at the positive pregnancy test. The time is flying, but I think it's mostly due to having our hands really full with Malaia right now.
I get the impression that she is going to be a little difficult when #2 comes along. She commands so much of our attention right now that when that attention has to be shared I think she might object to her future brother/sister getting any attention at all. After all she has the seniority right? She's put the time in, she deserves all of the glory. We'll see how it goes. I'm really not looking forward to teaching her that the new baby is not a toy and that it can't be hit, thrown, bit etc. But that's a part of parenting and I will face that challenge head on.
Ang is really starting to get big now. She's at the point now where she is starting to get some minor swelling in her feet and ankles. Which if I remember correctly doesn't bode well for her job. With the last pregnancy she got quite swollen, because her job as a massage therapist has her standing on her feet all day. I seem to remember it being quite painful for her so I hope it doesn't get as extreme this time around.
On another note, Malaia got to visit her great grandmother yesterday. Although she played shy I'm glad that she is getting the opportunity to meet the sole remaining great grandparenton my side of the family and one of our families pillars of strength. My hope is that she'll be around a few more years(she's in good health) so that Malaia and baby #2 and get to know her.
