Sometime on or around December 18, we’ll be welcoming another Campbell family member. When we told the kids, it took a few minutes to sink in, and then they started to get excited. After I put Mary to bed, I could hear her through the monitor jabbering away. It went something like this (but much cuter in her broken toddler-english):
And the baby is in mommy’s tummy.
And she is soooooo cuuuuuute.
And I will hold her. And hug her. And rock her.
She went on for a while, and Kate will probably remember more of what she said. but it was adorable. Simon seemed to take it all in stride. His demeanor seemed to say, “Yawn. Yeah, I’ve got a pretty good handle on this big brother thing. Bring it on.”
