Party of Two

I'm getting a little bit emotional about our little family gaining an addition in a few more weeks. We are making an effort to soak up our time together as a couple before we are a party of three. Tonight was date night and it was perfect.

We had dinner at the Linkery and then dessert at Heaven Sent Desserts after a walk (or a waddle for me) around the neighborhood. I love time with my handsome husband. We're getting near the end of time for just the two of us that doesn't involve a babysitter. I can hardly believe that we are five weeks away from Baby Bean's due date... We are looking forward to becoming a party of three, but I'm going to miss our sweet time as a party of two.

I'm thankful for yummy tres leches and Mexican hot cocoa with my favorite man!

Friends - We Need Them

Congratulations to my dear friend, and former roomie, Mandy who welcomed sweet Audrey to the outside world this weekend!

"Every child begins the world again…" - Henry David Thoreau

Holding precious Audrey this week I couldn't help but think about the miracle that a new life is... the miracle that pregnancy is. I am so blessed to be able to carry this child, to know it from its first flutter of life. I may not have this same experience for all of our children. Another woman (or women) somewhere else may carry some of my children, may know their first flutters and sacrifice to provide for their growth and safety. I think of the other woman (or women) who may give my child(ren) the generous gift of life often during this pregnancy and am so thankful for them. I am surrounded by wonderful friends to share this experience with and blessed with a supportive partner and loving family... I wish the same for my future babies' mommas. I hope for them to have, at the very least, one true friend to share their dreams and fears with along the way. Pregnancy is not an easy ride and I am glad to have some "sisters" on the journey with me this time around. :-)

It's been so fun to share being pregnant with my darling Jayma even though we live hundreds of miles apart.
