95 days

I missed it. I was so excited to 'mark' 100 days of pregnancy left and then I forgot all about it. But then I remembered today so figured I'd 'mark' 95 days. Feeling great still. I'm getting so excited to meet this little one. My only concern is Caden.
Not that it'll be too much with having 2 kids. I'm not worried about that at all. I'm also not worried about how Caden will treat the baby. We can work on that if we need too. What concerns me is the time that i Won't be able to spend with Caden. It doesn't seem fair that for 2 and 1 /2 years he'll have had me all to himself, and then poof, his mommy is busy with someone else.
Now I'm also lucky, because Caden is a great kid who plays very well by himself. He's never had my undivided attention because I wanted him to be a self sufficent kid. He has no problem going to play outside or in his room without me. He'll often play by himself while I'm doing other things. But I know I'm going to feel guilt for not spending as much time with him. I can only hope this next baby is as good as he was.
I've already been trying to think of special things that I can do with Caden once Baby comes, just to let him know he still has his Mommy. Any ideas from others with welcoming baby #2?

On a happy note, I think Rob and I have agreed on our girls name. I picked the name, not at all expecting Rob to like it because its not a name thats heard very often. He said it, and said it again. Then he told me he liked it. I was shocked. I told him the 2nd and 3rd names I'd picked and he was good with those as well. I was so pumped.
Now I just have to convince him on the boys name that I love.

Try to take Caden out for a special mommy date, even if it's too the grocery store or Tim Horton's. And while feeding baby, that's a good time to also have some conversation with him. :)

Wow, it's going fast! I would usually read or have CJ do a puzzle beside me, while I was nursing. It helped keep him out of trouble.

No words of advice from me...I'm still a mommy to just one.

Congrats on only 95 days left. Oh and I take it you aren't sharing names...if you are I'd love to hear them.
