Today is little D's due date. It's quite odd to think that if things had been the way they were meant to be, he'd only just be making his way into the world.
Instead, he's already been with us for 6.5 weeks. Already has grown out of clothes. Already been places and met people. Had cuddles. Been smothered by his big sisters. Shed tears and caused tears.
Instead of being a new creature, he's already sealed his place in our home and lives.
Instead of October 15 being a big day in our lives, it will just be another day. It will just mark six sleeps to Lil-lil's birthday.
It makes me realise how little you can actually control or plan life. We're all just along for the ride.
