Cliche

Friday, May 20, 2011

Everyone says "What a difference a year makes" at some point or another in their lives. Yesterday, I was talking (emailing) to one of my best friends, and she said "Think how far you have come since last year this time".

And since bloggers have an awesome history of themselves saved in a cute little drop down menu, I went to check what I was doing May 20 last year.

I knew it was around when we found out our IVF failed.

I didn't remember it was officially May 20.

Or, as I so succinctly put it, "It's the end".

I can't even begin to sufficiently describe how different this morning was, and now that I have the perspective of how far we have really come, I am having trouble putting the awesomeness (literally) of this morning into words. Let's just say we are so blessed; this baby looks perfect. We are so grateful, it is beyond anything we could have ever dreamed would happen to us, and we just pray for this child that they will continue growing beautifully and healthfully.

I'll update the ultrasound/belly page with a new belly pic and photos from this morning momentarily, so keep checking back!! (Pictures are up now!)

Oh. Were you wondering if this baby is a boy or girl? Well, let's just say we can't wait for HER to arrive in October!!! :-D

Congrats on Team Pink!!!

I've been thinking a LOT about where I was a year or two years ago. When the days of your baby's firsts coincide with anniversaries of sadness, it puts a whole new spin on things.

It is amazing what a difference a year makes. It really and truly is, cliche or no. (And thank goodness).

This time around, it's the beginning:)

Thank you for the sweet comment on my last post. I don't understand how they can complain either. My personal pet peeve is when they say they miss wine. REALLY? I don't get that.

CONGRATS ON THE GIRL!!!!! For some reason, I missed that little note the first time I read! :)

A year really DOES make a huge difference sometimes, and having a blog sure does help you to look back and see that. I love that you got to write two very different posts for "then and now."

Congrats on the baby GIRL on the way! I'm sure I'm biased, but baby girls are super sweet!! :)
