Thankful For The Little Things

Five years ago today, we found out that we were expecting Maggie.

I had been feeling bad for a couple of weeks, but really didn't have any idea that I was pregnant until I sort of added up all that I was feeling and took the test on the morning of August 15,2005.

Someone once told me that no matter how bad you wanted to be pregnant or what you had to go through to get that way, you would always be surprised when it finally happened.

We were.

Now, we can barely remember what it was like before we became parents.

It must have been quiet and boring and the house was probably a lot neater and a little more clean. I bet I slept a lot more too.

I had never heard of succentriate lobed placentas, velamentous cord insertion or vasa previa.
and I didn't have a crooked, off-center scar across my lower abdomen.

Thanks Muffin for being our glue.

LOL Oh my gosh! You almost gave me a heartattack. I thought you were announcing #3 when you said you had been feeling bad for weeks and took the test. Then I noticed the date was 2005!!

I can hardly remember life before Andrew. It was def. boring compared to now.

You really do have a lot to be thankful for (don't we all!!) I'm right there with you in not remembering life before kids...all the little ones were out of the house the other day and Robert and I were all alone, I said to him "See how boring our life would be without these guys!!"

I had never heard of those things before 2 years, 8 months ago either. :) See? We are smarter. And I am thankful for my crooked scar on my stomach too. :)
