Summer went far too quickly and the autumn came around so fast. In my head we had the whole of the summer holidays, the start of nursery, then school and before we knew it baby girl's due date would roll around.
All the other big events we had planned have happened, there's only my due date and Christmas left, she will be here before Christmas without a doubt.
We are trying to make the most of the autumn. We try to do something nice with Paige and Parker each weekend, even if like this weekend we just went to the park. They both love getting outside. Paige understands that its autumn and that baby girl will soon be here.
It's like a weird limbo where we are waiting for my due date but also trying to enjoy just having two children. There will soon be an extra little person in our family and while we can't wait it will change everything.
I remember feeling the same way with both Paige and Parker. Its such a strange time, lovely but strange. As my due date draws closer I know that the days we have as a four are limited. We will never be a family of four again. I hope baby girl fits in, I'm sure she will. I hope the children both take to her well and I hope we manage having three children.
We will watch the leaves turn golden and fall off the trees, we will cherish our few remaining weeks as a four and eagerly await our baby girl. We will soak up our final moments as a four and look forward to becoming a five.
