My writing partner had a baby! Congratulations to Amy and Harry and her new addition, Harrison! He is absolutely beautiful, as we all knew he would be. I had high expectations, when I found out I was pregnant, for my productivity level, and now I’ve discovered that I have fallen behind, which at first discovery made me sad. But then, I realized…I absolutely LOVE being pregnant. I love the look in Husband’s eyes when he sees/feels the baby move. I love the conversations Husband and I have. I love the conversations Baby Clay and I have when no one is around. I love petting my belly as if he could feel it. I love the way others get excited for our situation. I love the preparations, though tiring, that we are making to our tiny, old house in anticipation. I love the way I don’t care about petty things and how I don’t want material things. I love transitioning into this new level of adulthood. Yes, there are important things on the back burner currently, and I look forward to the day that I reposition them to the front. But right now, I am LIVING this pregnancy. And I don’t feel bad about that. Who knows if I’ll get another chance?
And now… a photo montage:
