Fear: Today I got teary-eyed when I realized we are going to be parents in the next three months. That is incredibly overwhelming and scary. Also, I fear that I don’t have enough for you to wear when you get here…. hopefully going naked is cool with you!

Thanks To: Granny and Auntie T for painting your crib!
There are certain songs that make me cry. I am not sure why but sometimes it feels good to play them and let the tears go. Today is that day. Today is February 6th – the day I have been dreading since July 6th. We were supposed to be excited about today. Today was supposed to change our lives. Today was supposed to be the day we became a family – a real true family – complete with the dog, toy cluttered living room, and lack of sleep.
Someday, today will turn into any other day but, for now, I press repeat one. more. time. Tomorrow, I’ll be happy. Tomorrow, I’ll be fine. Today, I hold on.
I Hold On

Nursery Status: Your crib is a work in progress! – thanks to Daddy, Granny, and Auntie T!
Fear: I am back to worrying that you will come too early. It is seriously cold out here – please wait until spring!
Excitement: Seeing your nursery come together and picking out anything baby! I LOVE the fabric store.
