This time last year

Last year on this day, at about this time, I was on the phone with my best friend FREAKING OUT.

On my lap was a little white stick with two pink lines.


What a year it's been! I knew a pregnancy was going to shake things up but wow.

And even with everything that's happened… it's been a great year. Really.

The wee one has a little brother to make the butt of his fart jokes, the wee-er one has learned how to be a great big sister, my husband and I have learned so many things I can't even list them here.

It all started on this day last year.

Three kids. It still shocks me.

But in a good way.

  1. I still remember reading the haiku you wrote about your Thanksgiving baby when you posted you were pregnant. Wow. Can’t believe it’s been a year. It feels a lot, lot, lot longer than that. And if I feel that way, I can’t imagine how you feel.


  2. Hello from Rye on the south-east coast of England. I wandered merrily onto your blog and thoroughly enjoyed your writing. I’m sending all my positive thoughts to you, Ike and your family – your situation has brought home how privilleged we are in England to have a national health service. I donated on behalf of my 7 month old baby – best wishes and bright blessings.
