the required 2010 new years post ... kinda.
and thought. without doing much of anything else.
(at least until i saw the belly amidst twinkling lights and decided that it needed to be recorded with the camera.)
i thought about how 2010 ... is the year i never saw coming. it's the year that i never knew i was going to have. it's the year in which i become the mama of three.
and it's not so far away.
the midwife told me on monday ... super secret ... but in a week and a half ... they wouldn't stop labor from moving forward. (she also noted that pregnancy could also go for another 8 weeks or so ... but ... i chose not to listen very well to that statement ... and i suggest highly that you don't either.)
and i'm feeling confident.
about bringing a baby home.
about being the rock that my girls need me to be as they adjust into their new roles of biggEST sister and bigger sister.
about raising 3 children with an amazing husband that is gone way too often.
about who i'm becoming.
and my single resolution for the year is to harbor this confidence that i feel right now as i lie in front of twinkling lights and feel this baby moving around and hear my girly-girls asleep in their bed.
here's to hoping that you are sharing in this confidence as you venture into your 2010 as well.
happy new years to all of you out there.
thanks for helping me along the way.
