I got a lot of love on my post regarding Sareena’s 1st birthday party from back in January. A lot has happened since then, and now that she will be 2 in just a few months, we have an even bigger birthday planned for her 2nd birthday..
The gift of a baby sister! Sameer and I are so grateful to be blessed with another baby girl on the way!
Baby #2 is due to arrive three days after Sareena’s 2nd birthday in January 2018 (but let’s see when she decides to make her appearance)! We were so excited and told Sareena as soon as we found out. She definitely knows and is excited that she’s having a baby sister. She has been obsessed with taking care of her baby dolls. She puts them to sleep, nurses them, feeds them, babywears them, basically is just all around nurturing as she always has been. She frequently pats and kisses my growing belly while saying “hi baby!” and sings to her. We watch birth videos together and the weekly baby growth updates, and she’s very hands on and involved in all our midwife check ups. She is going to play such an important role in her sister’s birth, I can feel it.
In the beginning, I felt so guilty wondering how I can love another child as much as my first, and felt sad about my attention having to be divided at times to tend to both daughters. But then I realized there is so much more to look forward to, like the joy of seeing my daughters interact and love one another. It’s a feeling I cannot wait to experience. Watching them grow and learn from each other, have princess tea parties, and get into all sorts of mischief together.
Sareena is going to be the best big sister, and I cannot wait to see how our little girls grow up together to be best friends. My heart is so happy and sometimes I cannot believe that I’m married to such an incredible man who I’ve made 2 daughters with. It truly feels like I’m living a fairy tale <3
