"I'm afraid you won't love me anymore"

This is what Dillon told me yesterday regarding the baby coming. It explains a lot of behavior lately.

We've been doing lots of extra "I love you's" and cuddling. It seems to be helping today- it's been a smoother day that we've had recently.

One of the midwives pointed out that sometimes it's the fear of the unknown that's worse than the actual event. Certainly that's been true for Dillon in the past. As much as we've tried to prepare her, we don't know what it'll be like for us to have a baby in the house, so there's an element of the unknown for all of us. Hopefully things will smooth out for her when the baby actually gets here.
