Moving in...

I realize that it's been quite a while since my last real post. I have been a bit taken by life's transitions as of late. Good transitions. Surprising transitions! One of which continues to hit me each time I look at my growing belly in the mirror and I think, "Oh my goodness...there really IS a baby in there." It's hard to believe that I'm already at the half way mark on the pregnancy timeline. It's strange to think back to the different surprises. Everything from, "Oh my gosh! We're pregnant!,"to "Oh my gosh! It's a boy!," and "Whoa! I think he's kicking!" It's an amazing ride. We have this drawer that we have been using to store some of the baby things that we have been collecting. Sweet gifts from thoughtful friends who are excited for his arrival are slowly filling it up. And each time I open it I am overwhelmed with the evidence that HE is moving in. His T-shirts and hats and blankets are already there. He will be here sooner than we can imagine and then our lives will never be the same. Life will be rich and challenging in new ways for us. We will have a son!

  1. Thanks Ben! We have officially been picked up and swept away by the latest "baby wave" :). It seems like lots of people are expecting/have welcomed a new baby into the family! Congratulations to you for your little one too! How does it feel to be a dad???

  2. Yes indeed. Many a little does make a mickle.

    And he/she is right...it takes ALL kinds to make a world. I think they both fell asleep on the period key, though.
