Things'll Never Be the Same

This afternoon, I took a shower and then accidentally fell asleep in my robe for two and a half hours (4:30-7:00).  This was unwise as when I take a particularly late nap, I usually end up wired for the rest of the night.  So, I've been reading this blog, upon Jamie's recommendation, and been so moved by their beautiful story.  If you have a chance, read it.  But start in the archives (January, 2008) and definitely have a tissue ready.  

Without going into too much detail for the sake of the males amongst you readers, today has definitely been a day of realizing that my body is no longer just my own or Adam's.  Things are changing and a drastic physiological change happened today that has really announced the ending of a season...from just me & Adam to a new life with our son.  Adam & I laughed a lot today about these transitions and welcome, joyfully, our son and the new life that he brings.  We reminisced about dating and our first couple of years of marriage and it was fun to look back at the road upon which we've been set...but also so strange to think that we will never not be parents from now on.  That's monumental. Each season is certainly to be cherished and celebrated.

If we were at a table of girlfriends, I'd tell you all about these changes as I have several of my buddies today but, alas, the world wide web is probably not the place to share these.

I started reading Audrey Caroline's story this summer and was so emotional as well.

I'm still loving your blog. You are absolutely beautiful pregnant! Hopefully if I have my own children, I'll look as pretty as you do. Congratulations to you and Adam and keep the stories coming!

I don't even remember life without children-but that is not a bad thing, but a wonderful thing. A true gift from God!

Girl, enough said. I know EXACTLY what you are talking about. I also know that your beauty will only grow stronger with the birth of your son. Children only make the natural beauty that God gave you grow stronger.

You napped during the Steelers game and your son let you? Maybe he was content listening to the game by himself or I'm afraid he could possibly be, I hate to say it, a Browns fan.

HA! I had a friend suggest it to me when LGT was 3 months old. Not a great idea-was SOBBING and couldn't stop reading it for hours. I actually thought of it the other day and couldn't remember the address. It is a tough one but a wonderful example of the Lord's work. I'll have to check back on it!
