It was June when I visited Dr. Bigelow to confirm I was pregnant again. I was so excited. Heidi was such a beautiful baby and was now such a beautiful little girl I couldn’t wait to have another baby in our family. I tromped out into the field carrying a surprise McDonalds lunch for Larry to give him the news.
He was excited too. Larry was a great daddy. He was very involved with our kids. I have to be honest though there were two areas he wasn’t good at and refused to practice to get good. Dressing and changing diapers were definitely left to me. I remember one time when Heidi was only about a year old I had gone to the grocery store and left Heidi with Larry. As soon as I opened the door to the house Larry said, “I think she might need changing.” Boy did she! At least it bothered him so I know if I was held up for a long period of time he would have eventually changed her. It always makes me wonder just why he thought changing a poopie diaper didn’t bother me! I didn’t like it either!
Dr. Bigelow assured me when I met with him this pregnancy should go as smoothly as when I was pregnant with Heidi. While our first pregnancy and the loss of our twins seemed to constantly nibble at the back of my thoughts I tried only to be positive.
We had fun making the calls to our parents again letting them know our family, and theirs, was growing again.
