TWENTY SEVEN + EIGHTEEN + GIVING THANKS

Posted on: Wednesday







We have a lot to be thankful for right now.  I was carrying Biet down the street yesterday when I suddenly realized that in that instant there were three heartbeats, all beating next to each other, all connected to one another, and all dependent on me. And I am healthy enough and strong enough to be able to care for them all. As simple as that sounds, it really kind of amazes me. 

Dear city-toned legs of mine: thank you for being able to walk down the street while holding up a baby bump, a bundled Mama, and a wily eighteen month old.  My body may have its harder days, but with a little tenderness everything seems to balance out.  And if there is one body part of mine which forever continues to amaze me, it is my toddler-chasing, table-waiting, stair-climbing, sidewalk-strolling, midnight-dancing legs. 

Dear tiny baby boy: you are 27 weeks along now, with only thirteen more weeks to go.  As the weeks roll by (and this time around, they are rolling by faster than I can count them!), my connection with you grows at an exponential rate.  In my heart, I am already a mother to one daughter and one son.  Thank you little boy for already teaching me so many quiet lessons of wisdom and acceptance. I cannot fathom the blessings you will bring to us all when you finally arrive.

Dear wily eighteen-month-old: When people ask how old you are, I can now tell them "a year and a half." A year and a half, oh my.  You have a spark, my little love, that is so hard to put into words. As you grow into a little girl, your energy and your humor and your unstoppable drive shine brighter and brighter. You are already the most amazing person I know. I am so very excited to introduce you, properly this time, to the joy of the holiday season.  Thank you for making this time of year, once again, the most wonderful time of the year, for all of us. Sometimes I forget how much magic the holidays hold, but you will not let me forget. 

Dear husband: Thank you for being. We are so good together. Next week will be four years since we were wedded on that winter day in the park.  Look at all we have created together!

Dear my Nico baby: Love, Love Love. You show it, you foster it, you are it.  

I am really truly thankful to be connected to these souls, and to have so much to look forward to.
