I can’t quite believe you’ve been on this earth long enough for there to be a sibling on the way for you. But here we are, at 2 years old, you are going to be a big brother. In just a few short weeks your life will change completely, going from being our sole focus to having to share that attention with another. Will you adapt to this? I really hope so.
You have always been such a loving little boy. You’re always ready for a snuggle and the past few months you have become such a mummy’s boy. I have a feeling this is mostly because you know something is changing. I have no idea if you understand when we tell you there’s a baby in mummy’s tummy that will be with us soon. That you’re going to be a big brother. Because you’re still so little and can’t tell us. But I just know you will love him as much as we will when he arrives.
I can just tell now that the two of you will be as thick as thieves. Your little brother will look up to you, and undoubtedly be a little pickle like you are! You will teach him all those cheeky ways of yours and you will both have me wrapped around your little fingers. We will have such fun all together in the years to come and I can’t wait to see how your relationship grows.
To begin with I know it will be a struggle for you. It will be a struggle for all of us. We are all going to have to get used to being a family of four, and to dividing our attention equally between you both. To start with your baby brother is going to take up a lot of all of our time. But I just know you will be the best big brother and help us look after him. You have such a caring nature and you are so good at following directions (most of the time anyway!).
So soon the next chapter of our journey begins and I just know it’s going to be just as good, maybe even better than the last 2 years. I will see you grow, our family grow, and my heart grow. And I can’t wait!
