Ivy's Anticipation

I have never experienced one of my children so anxiously awaiting the arrival of another. Ivy Jayden is just so excited about her baby Brother coming soon. She talks to him all the time and kisses and rubs my belly. She "plays" with him every single night when he is very active. She sings.... she talks..... she puts flashlights on my belly...... I mean it.....Ivy has connected with her brother in a way that I never knew possible with a sibling in utero.

Here are some pictures of Ivy and I, as the big day approaches. Here we are relaxing on the couch together one late night last week, and here is Ivy watching intently as my belly was adorned with Mendhi last night.

Hi, Dayna. I am Laura, I am a mom of two and I really enjoy your blog. I wanted to drop by and tell you that your videos have been invaluable resources for me during this season of my life. I'm in the middle of a homeschooling identity crisis, and you've helped me understand unschooling. I'm almost ready to dive in. Thanks so much for sharing your vision, and best wishes for you and your family during this exciting time.

How cool Dayna! I can't wait to see pictures of the new baby, but nothing compared to Ivy lol.
Love, Jessica
