Change is Good

One year ago, I was easing into married life. I was working my way through season after season of Psych while Graham worked long hours at Ernst & Young, and I was still unpacking boxes in our new apartment.

Now, I'm contemplating when I should start packing those boxes again. I'm wondering if we'll have a new room to decorate in a new house before this little boy makes his debut in May. I'm making guesses as to what time Graham will get home tonight from his first day at his new job.

I feel like I'm in the middle of a game of Yahtzee. I've rolled the dice, but I'm still waiting for the dice to land and to see what score I get.

Yes, we're crazy. We know. We've seen the looks people give us when we tell them that there's a good chance we'll move within a month of the baby's due date. I mean, who decides to have a baby, buy a house, and switch careers all in just a few months? Oh right, that's us.

Still, these are all good changes, and I'm excited at the direction our life is going. So...


That's a big statement to come from the fingertips of a girl who really doesn't like decisions and thoroughly enjoys the stability and comfort of a life well-planned. But I mean it. Bring on the paperwork of housing, the sleepless nights of motherhood, and all the uncertainty of starting something (or somethings) new.

Speaking of new, I'm SO not used to this belly of mine. I don't know how he's going to keep getting bigger for three more months!

The above picture is mostly for my mom, who has patiently waited for me to show her a pregnant shot. Here are some more shots for Mom, but you're welcome to admire my cute baby, too.
