We’re down to the final week before the due date of our baby boy, and we’re starting to get a little anxious. Hannah knows from her experience with our first baby that she needs to find lots of things to keep herself busy with this final week. Lydia came five days late, and Hannah was so stir crazy that she went on a 2-mile vertical hike and drank a mysterious concoction of lemon juice and castor oil to try and kickstart her labor. We’re trying to manage our expectations a little better this time around, and Hannah has made a long list of things to do during the week.
One thing Hannah likes filling her time with is editing pictures and videos. She’s had an idea for making a video about our expectations for baby No. 2, and we finally sat down and recorded it last week. She’ll be the first to say that it is not her best piece of work, and she’s unhappy about the poor lighting and sound quality—but I think it’s cute anyway. We talk about our differing expectations, what will be hardest thing about having a second baby and what we’re most excited about.
