The Greatest Gift, on Mamalode

“You are giving your son the greatest gift there is, a sibling,” a friend told me when I announced that I was pregnant with our second child last spring.

But even as I announced my pregnancy, my track record of losses left me wondering whether there would be a second baby in the fall — let alone whether Teddy would be happy we’d broken up his little party of three with a crying, pooping sister.

A few short words from Teddy finally broke through that skepticism.

I’m thrilled to be up on Mamalode reflecting on what Katie’s addition to our family meant for us, and especially what she’s meant to Teddy. Come on over to read more about it, in “The Greatest Gift.”
