From the Beginning
Since this might be our last baby--the jury is still out on that decision, but I realize now that it may not be ours to make--I am trying not to get distracted by the shortness of breath or the sore back that has crept up on me. Instead, I want to focus on the wonderful feeling of togetherness being pregnant provides. I want to remember the way it feels to have a baby come to life, rolling and dancing around in my belly, when I lay down at night. I want to always be able to revisit the feeling of anticipation that is alive in our house. From Shawn's extra hugs and flower deliveries to Violet's snuggly, face-buried-in-belly hugs "for the baby," we are all aware that this is an unprecedented time for our family. It has just been us 3 Pierces for quite awhile, forever as far as Violet is concerned, it is fun to wonder how the fourth will fit in.
