Testing, testing… Well, look at that! It’s me and Boots!
Now wait a second… Boots, are you giving me bunny ears?
[What? Me? No way! You must be seeing things with your crazy eyes there.]
Ok, everyone. Are you ready? Today is super special and we don’t want to mess this up.
[We’re ready, Potatoes!]
Ok. One, two, three…
Ha, ha! Ok, Mom, I’ve got the camera all warmed up and ready for you!
[Thank you, Potatoes! Places, everyone!]
Sure thing, Mom!
Ta-dah! It’s our whole faminy!!
Aww. Look at us all! Spit shined and all ready for our turn at church during COVID-19. *Sigh* There’s only one thing that could make this better. Do you know what it is? 🥰 I’ll give you some hints…
He’s 38 weeks old, sitting all comfy and breech, and giving Mommy contractions like nobody’s bidness. He’s also a powerful magnet for our hands and we love to find his head and feel his huge kicks and jabs. AND! The doctor is going to take him out in just two days!!!
He’s our new baby brother!!!
Aww… We just can’t wait to meet him.
And I’ll bet when he comes out, he’s going to make…
… The Bubbers King look every inch of being a teenager who’s almost as tall as his mom! (Though it makes him sad and excited at the same time. He wants to tower over Mommy, and yet he doesn’t… Isn’t growing up confusing?)
Baby brother will also make…
… Mommy shake her head in wonder that Sir Boots is old enough to have the Priesthood and pass the sacrament at church. It just swells her heart to the brim to watch him and she’ll get to again today!
And of course…
… Mommy can’t believe I’m old enough to hold and rock my baby brother like a champ! (Wasn’t it just yesterday that she was rocking ME to sleep every night for hours while watching Larkrise to Candleford on her phone? That was almost 10 years ago? Holy cow…)
But for sure…
… This little guy is still little. (Wait. Joo-Jee’s getting baptized this year? And he’s reading up a storm and totally holds his own in wrestling matches with his older brothers? That can’t be right.)
Then just maybe…
… Mommy’s little Princess won’t look like a giant after Mommy brings home her new baby. Because she remembers VERY well when this girl couldn’t sing and dance and twirl all day long.
Man. I guess it’s true, Mom.
We’ve really grown up! And honestly? It’s amazing!
And just think… We get to help one more tiny son of Heavenly Father’s learn all about this beautiful world, his miraculous new body and the roadmap back home.
[Yes, we do, Potatoes! And there’s nothing in the world more incredible than that.]
That’s true. Thanks, Mom and Dad! ❤️
Love, Sir Potatoes
