As Aaron and I were watching TV tonight, a thought popped into my head that sort of changed my perspective of things. For a while now, I've felt impatient for this sweet baby boy to arrive, and some days seemingly drag by. Tonight though, I realized that in just a little over 8 weeks it won't just be me and Aaron anymore. Of course I knew that after 9 months of "baking in the oven" this little guy would eventually come out and join us, but I really started thinking tonight of what that means. For the past 5 years (as of next month!) it's just been us. And though we both have desired children from the get go, it will be bittersweet to move into this next stage of life. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't be more excited about this precious baby, but I know that I will not be able to devote as much time and attention on my sweet husband, and it makes me just a teeny bit sad, yet happy at the same time knowing that we both get to share in the joy of raising a child together.
Anyways, I now have a renewed perspective on waiting 2 more months for the big day. I hope that I am able to use this time to focus on Aaron, and to enjoy these last weeks of just being a couple!
