I cannot believe it's been a year since this (the reason for this blog) happened.
That's right! It has been exactly one year since we found out we'd been successful and were in fact expanding our family! (I still mark the day that we found out about Baby Maggie, August 15, 2005, but I didn't post about it.)
I suspected that I might be pregnant, but it was my sweet mommy-friend A that convinced me I had to go home, take a test and call her immediately with the results. I did just that and then I called Big Daddy, but didn't tell him, then I took Muff's picture, called the Ob's office and then I e-mailed my special friend Michele. Yes, I told two of my girlfriends before I told Big Daddy. I was over the moon! A called several times that evening to see what Big Daddy thought about the happy news. The following week A and I told our other special mommy-friend K after Kindermusik and we celebrated by going to Gymnastics with our kiddos and then out to lunch. Now, in just a few weeks, A will be welcoming a sweet, little girl of her own. So much can happen in a year!
I didn't know I would be blogging the whole pregnancy (with baby belly pictures), delivery and our life after the big event. It wasn't until I was almost twelve weeks preggers that I told my family, my aunt and the blog was born. I look back on all of the silly posts and pictures and I'm so glad that I have them. I cannot believe how my belly transformed, how much can happen in a year and my goodness, how much The Muffin has grown.
I had aches, pains, complaints and lots of dramatic life-changing things that happened during the pregnancy. The things that I loved the most about being pregnant (besides just being pregnant) with Baby Ellie would have to be The Muffin's excitement and sweet gestures, making my mom and sister SO happy and having my mommy-friends A & K to have lunch with on Mondays. I don't know how I would have made it without my mommy-friends and their encouragement and sometimes sympathy.
Well...Happy Anniversary Baby Ellie. We love you bunches and bunches.
