After a week or two of my daughter's insistence that there were two babies in my belly it was a bit of a relief to see just one. I actually would have loved twins but the adjustment of one new addition will be plenty blessing enough.
I was glad we ended up taking my daughter with us. The look on her face to hear the heartbeat and the doctor showing her the baby was perfect. She is so excited and I can't wait to see how she does as a big sister.
I'm beyond grateful this morning with peace of mind. I'm grateful to have the flutters I have felt confirmed as to where the baby grows. I'm grateful for a very squirmy little one because those movements give me reassurance that all is well even when I cannot see him or her. I'm grateful for all the celebration we received as we made our announcement yesterday. I'm grateful our daughter is excited. I'm grateful to know that she will be a great big sister even though I know there will be some adjustment as she shares the spotlight. I'm grateful for all the moms out there who have gone before me that patiently answer my questions and help calm any concerns. I'm grateful for the fruit sizes my app pairs with each week so I have an estimate of how big my little one is getting. I'm grateful for my little lime, that is finally...maybe...letting me eat.
What big changes are coming in your life? Which events are on your list of best days of your life? What are you grateful for today?
May today be a celebration of all our triumphs. May we pause to remember the best days we've had and imagine our best ones to come. Have a beautiful day!
