Dearest Daughter #2,

You haven’t been born yet of course, but you’re still a very big part of our lives. We think about you constantly — about how tired you’ll make us, about how cute you’ll be, about how intimidating it feels to have TWO kids, about how we’ll want to make you smile, about how you and Anya will interact… We’re very, very excited for you to join our family, and we can’t wait to meet you.

Today, we made a few tweaks to the blog in advance of your arrival. When we first created the Baby Blog, it was to discuss Mommy’s pregnancy with Anya. Since then, it became a chronicling of Anya’s babyhood and ascent to two-years-old. Even more recently, obviously, the blog has sported a variety of posts about YOU! We were very eager to have a second child in our family, and we are thrilled that you will soon finally be here.

Right now, you and Anya seem to be sharing this blog pretty nicely. Granted, that could be because only one of you is even remotely aware of its existence, and neither of you has any real sense of what the heck it is.

But it’s my sincere hope that this auspicious start to sharing between you two keeps up for a long, long time!

Anya redefined how much love Mommy and I thought we could feel. Adding you to our family just means that we will be adding an additional 10-ton barrel of love, and I just can’t wait.
