A few weeks ago I took her and Elias to a midwife appointment. Before leaving I said, "We are going to the midwives to hear our new baby!" She got a very troubled look on her face and said, "Mommy, I don't want a new baby..." I was confused about this because up until then she has showed nothing but excitement about a new brother or sister, so I asked her why she didn't want a new baby. She said with the same troubled look and seriousness, "I don't want a new baby, I want to keep Elias." It was then I understood, she thought we were getting rid of Elias in order to get the "new baby." I nearly cried!
Then today I was snuggling her before her nap. She looked at me and said, "Mommy, will you always be here?" I wasn't sure what she meant, in bed snuggling or what. So I said, "What do you mean?" She replied, "Will you always be my mommy? Will you go away? You are the sweetest Mommy I ever loved!" Again, my heart almost broke! Of course! Of course!
