This very important little person is going to be a big sister next year and doesn't yet know it...
I've been missing Vivienne this week (and Dav too, for the record), and the times when I'm around wifi and can chat to her seem to be fleeting and our time zone differences aren't quite syncing up. This week we're working with children's clothing all week, and I can't help but look down at the pieces and wonder how a poppy seed sized thing can turn into a little person who would fit into these items..
I feel like David is itching to tell people, and in ways I can't wait to get back home so we can chat about everything more (yes, I know.. there's not that much to discuss and sort at this point..). We both can't wait to tell Vivienne. I keep wondering what she'll be like around a little one, whether she'll find it difficult, whether she'll understand that things will be changing forever and that our current routines and habits won't be the same..
She'll be 7 and a half, and for the past few years has endlessly told us that if she had a brother or sister she'd help out a lot and get wipes and nappies when required, help feed them, let them have her toys..
We both really can't wait to tell her.. I wonder whether she'll be demonstratively ecstatic, overwhelmed, emotional or just a mixture of all three..
