On September 13th 2003, Jeff and I were lounging around on a Saturday morning without a care in the world. That was about to change. We discovered that morning that we were pregnant with our first child. Sometimes I wonder how we got through that day. We later hosted an intimate party with 100 or so people at our new home. It was all a blur.
On Tuesday afternoon January 25, 2005 I was home alone with my 8-month-old baby boy when the question "could I be?" was answered by yet another double line. We had hoped our children would be close together but never expected it to be that close!
Those days will forever be etched in my memory as life-changing moments. Sometimes it's still a surprise to me that we've been blessed with these sweet and funny little beings.
One thing those two moments had in common was not only finding out I was pregnant, but sharing the news with Jeff. He was beyond thrilled to hear those three little words. I am pregnant.
I never in a million years imagined he'd have the chance to return the shock and thrill. For months, we discussed "what ifs" and asked "could we" whenever we discussed adoption. But we were never able to say definitively that we were going for it. Until May 13, 2007 - Mother's Day. When I opened the gift my husband so thoughtfully created...
And THAT is the way I found out he wanted another child. I couldn't imagine another human being on the planet with whom I'd rather take this journey.
