The Middle Man


Look at me.  There I am.  Sitting in the middle.  Ironic?  Maybe.  But its about to be the story of my life.

My name is Knox.  From what I have heard, my life is about to flip upside down-

I’m almost a year old.  In January- my parents found out I was going to be an older sibling… sweet!  But it doesn’t stop there.  I get to be an older sibling to not one, but TWO babies.  (To be honest, I’m not even sure what that all means.)

I do know that mom came home from the doctor one day with pictures to show dad.  When dad saw the pictures, he had a hard time breathing.  He had to hold onto the counter and then sit down.  Nana was there.  She kept giggling and videotaping him.  Mom kept saying something about a “Bonus Baby”.  Then, they just kept looking at me and saying “Poor, Knox- he has no idea”.  Of course I have no idea what any of this means!

I do know that I have an awesome older brother and sister.  When they told Aiden- he didn’t seem very happy and said something about moving out.  When they told Lucy- she said she was excited… as long as one of them was a girl?!?

Now my house is being over taken with baby stuff that I am WAY too big to be playing with.  And there are two of everything!  Mom’s really letting herself go- her stomach is getting BIG! and whenever I cuddle with her, its like one of those massage chairs on my back.

They keep saying August.  Wait until August.  and hopefully “the twins” will bake until August.

All I know- if I have two older siblings… and two on the way… that leaves me to be the man in the middle.
