My Precious Boys

You are asleep right now. When you wake up tomorrow morning daddy & I won't be here but instead Auntie Kayci will be with you. We will be checking in to the hospital to have our new littlest love. The next time you see us we will be a family of 5. You boys will officially outnumber us.

Johnnie you are going to be a big brother again but I imagine it will be different this time. When we brought Joey home you didn't understand that he was staying. You pointed out all his body parts to us & kept trying to feed him your bottles but you were so young then. Now you are a year older & I think you will completely understand that this new baby boy is here to stay. To steal your toys, to follow you around & to accept all the love I think you plan to offer him including all your hugs & kisses.

Joey you are becoming a big brother which seems so strange since you are still such a baby yourself. You have never known what it was like to have the house all to yourself & I don't think you will ever remember a time without a big & a little brother. As young as you are you still have so much you can teach your little brother. You are a very happy little guy. Always smiling, playing, giggling & giving open mouth kisses.

I can't wait to meet your baby brother, to hold him for that 1st time & to see him with the two of you. It melts my heart to know that in less than a week our house will be full of that new baby smell, that little (LOUD) cry, new experiences & most importantly another brother for you guys. I'm so excited for the two of you to meet him & to begin the rest of your lives of fun together. You boys bring so much happiness to my life & make waking up each day that much better. I love our life together & can't imagine how much happier I could be. But I'm very excited to find out. I love you both dearly & thank you in advance for your patience for those hours in the 1st few weeks that I will have to dedicate to your little brother. Sleep tight my babies. Mama loves you! Here are some of our last photos together with your little brother still in my belly. You both have been sick this week so your daddy & I have spent a lot of hours awake with you in the middle of the night. It was hard to get photos with both of you because Johnnie was so under the weather today but I'm really happy that I was able to get photos of each of you.

Knowing Dr Nelson, she probably did not arrive right at 9am, but hopefully by now you have met your littlest one. Congratulations!
