Two weeks 'til Christmas!  I can't believe it's so close.  A year ago I craved a baby, a second chance, someone to get up in the morning for.  Now I have a three month old chewing his hand and talking to me as I type this.

Life moves fast.  Do you ever stop and think about how far you've come, how much has changed, how where you are is so different (but that could be good or bad) than where you expected to be?


  1. Time is strange. Feels like just yesterday I was facing my first Christmas without her. 2008 wasn't that long ago, surely? I was so empty, bereft, alone, devastated. Now here I am, two living kids to my name. When and how did that happen?

  2. This year has dragged in places and flown by in others. But last Christmas doesn't feel like it could possibly have been a year ago. The last few days we have watched some of our annual traditional Christmas movies and it feels like I just saw them (even though it was a year ago!) But yeah, I'm in a much better place this year and it feels wonderful.

  3. I think about it all the time. My reasons are probably less profound than others (though maybe not) but I've grown to also appreciate what I have so much more than I did, almost to the point of overkill emotionally. Just last year Eli was 6 months old, not crawling, though he was rolling, and we had our tree beautifully decorated (this year we have the "babyproofed" version), and a year before that I was pregnant and wondering what the future would bring. And now, we have another coming in March and I often wonder how we got here, and I'm sure I'll wonder that same thing for years to come. I guess the answer is day by day, or sometimes one step at a time during the really hard times. Somehow, those days turn into years.


thank you!
