Made My Day

My sister-in-law sent me this video this morning. My sweet niece, who is the love of my life, has never been able to say my name...until this week. This is the first time I've heard it. So cute! But what makes me even happier is that she is so excited I'm coming to visit her. She kept running to the garage door to look for me. She must know how much I love her. I can't wait to see her next weekend.

This may sound crazy, but is a legitimate fear I have about having a baby, one of my biggest fears is that I won't love my baby as much as I love my niece. I honestly can't imagine loving someone as much as I love her. Chuk assures me I'll love our baby more, but I don't think that's possible. Did any of you ever worry about anything like that? Is this a normal worry? I've never heard anyone talk about it.

*Note: You'll hear my sister-in-law say Chuk's real name in this video. I always call him Chuk though.*


  1. I had the same fear when pregnant with my 2nd child, b/c I couldn't imagine loving another the way I loved my first. However, you're going to be amazed at the love you feel for your own child. It's scary, b/c you love them so much it hurts! I now have 3...and can't imagine my life without them. Sometimes I wish to be without them for a little while, but just for a break ;)

  2. Yeah, it's common to wonder how you're going to "split your love" between children in your life, but it will happen and then there will be even more! :)


I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
