Sigh. This is our latest love. This is what has been making me so very tired, occasionally sick, deliriously happy, joyously hopeful... We are just over half way through this journey of growth that's so short in comparison with the adventure to come after his/her expected arrival in early July. It may be hormonal, but every time I think about this new life, or any other, it immediately replaces any feeling of inability to cope with an overwhelming desire to nurse and nurture, the feeling of anxiety becomes a feeling of nervous excitement for the future. Which is a good thing, because raising our boys is a challenge for which I quite often need that reminder, that when all is said and done, this hard work is totally worth it.
This... is our latest love.
