With all my children over the years and pregnancies I have seen them excited and anxious to have a new brother or sister. What I see in William is very different. I still see the same excitement and anxiousness but it's also mixed with an unbelievable love for Baby Munck. I don't think he remembers when I was pregnant with Wesley or when we brought Wesley home from the hospital. So this seems to be all new for William. Here is the conversation William and I have...........
W: Mama, I love your belly. (as he's rubbing my tummy)
Me: Thank you, William.
W: Mama, I love your baby too. (still rubbing)
Me: William I know this baby is going to love you very much! (as I pat his back)
W: Do you think your baby is going to love me the most?
Me: I think this baby will love you all but, it will love that you are it's big 4 year old brother!
W: I think it will love me to cause I'm going to hold it and kiss it. (now his head is resting on my tummy and he's still rubbing)
Me: Yes William the baby is going to love you BIG Bunches! (as I give him a hug)
Then within minutes William is very happy and marches off to play again. William's playing never last to long that he isn't back and we have the SAME conversation ...AGAIN! At times it almost seems like we have rehearsed it. You would think by now I'd be tired of hearing this same thing over and over all day long but I'm not tired of it at all. Truly this is one of the highlights of my day and something that I will very much miss after Baby Munck is born....Sweet words from a precious Boy!
I guess the next best thing is going to be watching William holding Baby Munck and talking sweet words to him/her. Yes, I'm sure that will be a beautiful sight and sound!
