Two Days

When things got particularly rough last week with our birth mom I started writing like crazy. It is amazingly therapeutic for me so I wrote a little something every day of the week to get me through. The posts may be a little jumbled, but here they are in all of their unedited glory. You get these posts this week while I'm snuggling my brand new baby boy.

We have two days until we meet our little guy. We go in tomorrow night to get induction started and he will be here Tuesday.

We sat at the kitchen table trying to figure out the carseat for a long time this afternoon, and when we finally got it installed we were all "Wow. There is a carseat in there".

It feels really crazy that in two days we'll be parents. Two days.

I don't think I've mentioned this, but he will be born nearly three years to the date that we started trying to have a baby. There have been so many ups and downs, and I know this will be such an incredible time for us.

Last night, Ingrid and I celebrated with Thai food and Target. Today I'm celebrating by finishing up Isaiah's laundry and keeping the house clean. I will probably tune in to the Oscars tonight after I track down a bottle of wine. I'm going to start with our parent's houses first, and if I'm not successful I may have to go to Ohio. That's kind of a joke, but kind of not.

I was thinking this morning about how real this adoption felt back in October, and even at Christmas, and somehow, it feels even more real now. This is really happening. We're really going to be parents.

With all the highs and lows, it still feels too good to be true. What we've always dreamed of is finally happening.

He is going to be so small in this.


  1. I am just so happy for you guys!

  2. I am finally catching up on these, but I love that it took you a really long time to figure out the carseat! That will so be me and Charlie.
