The time has come...

So we've made it this far and the anxiety has really set in pretty hard. In less than 24 hours we'll be in the hospital for that familiar scenario, the one we went through approximately 11 months ago. Of course this time Enz won't be going through 21 hours of labor with literally nothing to show for all her efforts. And this time we won't be having our family waiting and waiting and waiting. This time we've got the operation scheduled in the books, and we know that our second little one will be born tomorrow morning, sometime after 7:30am.

These last few days have been fairly hectic at home, with both of us trying to get the last bit of preparation completed, all the while having little Kenna to look after. She's been keeping us entertained, to say the least, and her little antics have managed to keep us smiling in an otherwise chaotic time. It'll be very interesting to see how she adapts to this enormous change in our lives. I've said it before that we think she may be too young to fall into that whole jealousy thing, but you never know. Her personality has developed so quickly that she just might get the urge to lash out wondering "what about me" as we do our best to accommodate two children. I guess we'll just cross that bridge when we get to it.

As we did when Makenna was still in Enza's belly, we had a little fun with some paint. We just wanted to give Coconut an option at a possible college choice for the future =)

And of course, little Kenna is literally not so little anymore! She's been on this steady growth spurt as of late and we can never really tell when she's done eating. We finally busted out her second stage car seat, and even though she meets the weight requirement to allow for forward facing installation, she's still 1 month shy of the age requirement. That being said, she's stuck facing rearward in the new seat for just one more month. You can see her reaction to the news in this picture!

For the readers of this blog, don't worry if you don't see an update over the next few days. I'm sure you can understand why! We'll resume the updates once things settle down, whenever that is, and finish out Makenna's first year. Not quite sure how the blog will change, but stay tuned!

And now the 1972 Miami Dolphins can pop another bottle of champagne in celebration of a record still intact, the only perfect season in the Super Bowl era.
