The waiting is the hardest part.

The line comes Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' song "The Waiting." Right now, the waiting is the hardest part for Amber.

"The waiting" is for her sibling, who is due to arrive Feb. 24 — Mardi Gras. Amber is quite excited about it. She keeps asking when the baby is going to arrive and can't wait to hold the baby.

I am as anxious as she is, but if the baby can wait until closer to the due date, I'd be grateful. We have virtually everything we need, but it's just a matter of getting it all organized. There are baby clothes to wash, a crib to reassemble, diapers to get in order and a bag to pack for that trip to the hospital. …

It's hard to believe that it's only a matter of weeks until Baby No. 2 arrives. This pregnancy seemed to last longer than the first. 

I will continue to blog up until the baby arrives, and while I will be taking time off to enjoy our new bundle of joy, I'll continue to blog on Mommy Mentions. I'll try and continue to find topics relevant to today's mommies, as well as share on my experiences of being a mommy of two — well, three, if you count our German shepherd Buddy, also known as our "fur baby"!

Hope you all are having a good week, and if Old Man Winter ends up dropping a few inches of snow on us, be careful out there!
