One Year Ago Today

One year ago today:

  • I was a few days short of being 8 months pregnant
  • I slept in, not knowing it was the last time to do so for a looooooong time
  • I woke up slowly, and I read while still in bed
  • I didn’t feel well
  • I read a lot, did some knitting, and watched some TV, had a lot of “me” time
  • I didn’t feel like eating
  • I had plans to go Christmas shopping that night with my Mom
  • I received my first order of cloth diapers
  • I didn’t understand what it meant to completely give yourself to someone else
  • I had plans to get a Christmas tree over the weekend
  • My hands were so swollen I had dimples on my knuckles like a baby and I had to wear wrist guards to prevent carpal tunnel
  • I tried to help my husband get our new bathroom sink installed and working
  • I went to Don’s Photo to pick up some photos to give to my Dad the next day when he came to visit
  • I have a wonderful Christmas season of being pregnant ahead of me
  • I ate a yogurt for supper at 9:00 at night
  • I went to bed early
  • I had no clue that when I woke up the next morning my whole life would be forever changed for the better by the arrival of the sweetest little girl

    Oh wow, what a story… it’s incredible to look back on those life changing moments and remember the hours leading up to them completely unaware of what lay around the corner šŸ™‚

      Yes! Sometimes I wonder if I knew it was going to be my last non-Mom day, would I have done anything different? I don’t think so though because I had a thoroughly lazy day!

      Thank you ana! It is surreal to think that she wasn’t here a year ago…and how much she has changed in that year.
