Well, this is the last day of 2007. It’s an understatement to say it’s been an amazing year!
Besides the surprise of our little bundle of joy (there really is no better way to describe her), so many of our friends were blessed with new little ones as well! And there are still more to come in 2008. Our circle is responsible for quite the population growth these days. We even have friends that are talking about working on children #2 and 3 next year, so it ain’t over!
Ronnie and I have grown a lot this year too. Poor guy has really had a challenge learning to live with me pregnant. We’ve been living together longer with me pregnant than not. He is sure excited for 2008 when hopefully I can be more normal. But he is such a trooper! Always so understanding and patient. I’ve learned a lot about his love for me this year. It’s pretty cool how deep it goes!
And of course, I’ve learned a lot about myself. I’ve learned I’m capable of things and feelings that I never thought possible. How is it that I am overjoyed on a daily basis by a baby? Sometimes I laugh when I realize “wow, there is a cute little baby girl laying over there. She is mine, and I love her. ” God has sure blessed me, and given me a part of my heart that I never knew was there, and a patience and love that I never thought possible for another person. And, on top of it all, He’s given me the “gift” of baby talk. Haha!
