Diapers Have Been Purchased

Yes, the unthinkable has happened. I thought my birthday made me feel different, or the first time we had an ultrasound and there was definately a person in there. But THIS tops all of the other weird feelings, hands down. We watched Lamaze dvds and washed baby mitts and did many other useful things (I still have to build a changing table; it will come to pass) and yet the diapers seemed much more important that those other things. At first I thought "so begins the worst 3 years of my life" then quickly changed WORST to TOUGHEST. But enough with the belly ache; we are doin great!

You know, you may change your opinion about the next three years being the toughest of your life once you parent a child from, say 13 to 15! There are some difficult moments in the early years, but a whole lot of sweetness too. And they adore their daddy-- teenagers don't always! You'll be a great daddy.

Love,
Mom T.

Guess it's been a long time since I've shared the pending joy/fear of new parents....love hearing you both blog. The diapers are for sure the down-side to a little person, BUT the joys, smiles, hugs and just the miracle of a new life that God has created via the 2 of you is amazing and far outweighs dirty diapers!

Love you all three....Robin G.
