Life has been so, so full lately. For the past month, it seems as if every minute of every day has been planned with something to check off the to do list, and there is so much more to come before things slow down. We've been out of town for work, for family, for fun. We decided to do some house renovating before your arrival, turning one bathroom into two; we've been working hard in our jobs, as usual. It's left us with little time to sit and breathe and be present. We've often thought at the end of the day, how are we going to bring a baby into this chaos? And so we've talked about ways to make sure we slow down, change our schedules, open up our lives and have time more for you. I think we have some good plans in place. Through the chaos, there are so many moments of joy- watching my stomach move, hearing your dad talk to you, comments from others about my expanding belly. Growing a life is such a beautiful process. Taking time each week to sit down and write these little, silly notes and capture some photos helps to appreciate it and take it all in. Only fifteen weeks to go...
