This is real.
Sometimes that is still a difficult concept to grasp. Because for a while there we weren't sure if it ever would be.
Today Sadie is 18 weeks. I realize we are not quite half way there and the journey ahead of us is still long but I am so happy to be where we are today. Each week feels like a giant milestone and every new thing we experience is a tremendous accomplishment. My husband tells me daily what a great job I am doing growing this baby and I remind him it's because he takes care of me so well. We will not let a single moment of this go unappreciated.
As I stand in Sadie's empty room and stare at her precious pink walls I am overwhelmed with happiness and anticipation. We cannot wait to meet you Sadie.
