On the day we found out you were coming

{July 5, 2012}
I took my third positive pregnancy test in the morning with Daddy watching over my shoulder.
He celebrated.
I was in disbelief.
I didn’t finish my caffeinated coffee for breakfast.
We talked about your name in the safety of the roar of the Atlantic ocean.
Daddy picked up fries for lunch.  My choice.
The doctor called me back and then congratulated me.
I cried when I hung up.
Daddy prayed over me and you.
I took a guilt-free nap rather than join Daddy on a long run.
I found a pregnancy app on my phone and pondered over you.
We celebrated “Dependents Day” (which naturally follows Independence day)
You and I ate yellow curry for dinner.
My fortune said, “It is a time for caution, but not for fear.”
I referred to MG as “sister” for the first time.
I went to bed with a smile on my face.

 

P.S. Welcome to my new blog home!  I appreciate you following me over here and will be updating regularly.  I’m still working out some of the kinks of the move, so I apologize if some of my older posts/pictures are a little wonky on the formatting.  As always, thanks  for reading!
