My recent conversation with EK:
EK: (Pointing at the bump) Mama! You got a baby in your tummily?
Me: Yes! Are you excited?
EK: Yeah, I love him!
Me: Do you remember his name?
EK: *says the name* My friend! He is so special!
Me: That’s a wonderful thing to say! I think he’s special, too.
EK: You go to the doctor to make sure he’s safe? (That’s how I had explained going to the doctor so much.)
Me: Yes, I go to the doctor to check on the baby and make sure he’s safe.
I’m blown away by the little gal’s love and kindness toward him already. However, sometimes I wish she’d show a little more love and kindness to the brother that’s outside my womb.
