Cravings: Ice cream, Rolo’s, Avocado, Cheerios (not Crispix! Go figure!)

Bump: Most definitely.

Latest Project: Finishing the sleep sack and working on your bubble mobile.

Nursery Status: Still waiting on daddy to order our rocker! Once the mobile is done, everything is ready for you to come!

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!

Excitement: 12 weeks or less until we get to meet you!

Complaint: Your head on my stomach is making all meals extremely painful.

Thanks To: Daddy for putting up with my mood swings.

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
