As soon as I suspected I was pregnant I started spending more time with Mollie. I didn’t want her to think that just because we were going to have a new family member that we were going to forget about her.
I waited to tell Victor until I was positive I was pregnant. He was very excited.
As time went on and we arrived closer to the due date, Mollie got very clingy.
She talked to me nonstop about the baby in my belly. She seemed pretty excited but I think she was concerned too.
Victor took some time off work even so he could spend some time with Mollie on his own.
She loves books and she is such a Daddy’s girl. She loves the books about art and color. She tells me I can’t do them right because I don’t make the voices like Daddy. I don’t know how he makes voices for jellybean colors but it works.
When we were just a few weeks away from meeting our baby I asked Kia for a favor.
“Hey, when I go into labor, will you be able to watch Mollie?
“You call me, chica. Any time. 2pm or 2am and I’ll be there.”
Now everything was taken care of and all we could do is wait.
