“When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.” –Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet

Hello there! How was your week? Mine went by quickly. We’ve been busy checking the final items off of our pre-baby to-do list, and I’m happy to report that after this morning, it will all be complete! The infant car seat is installed; the tiny clothes are washed (thanks, Mom!); and the hospital bag is ready & waiting to be packed.

The best news that I have to share is that warmer weather is finally upon us! Temperatures during the day have been above freezing and the massive drifts of snow that have surrounded us for the last couple of months are melting. We even had a “warm” day this week that served as a reminder that spring is so very near.

Other than that, things have been fairly quiet around here and I imagine that they’ll stay that way until baby girl arrives. I’ve been enjoying these last few weeks with lots of extra cuddles for Roman, cherishing my last days as a mother of one.

With M. being home, he’ll take over many of the “Roman responsibilities” once baby arrives. It will be a major adjustment for everyone. My postpartum period with Roman was rough. Back then, M. was working 12-16 hour days and I was always alone. On top of that, I was up all night with sleepless baby Roman, working to keep him as quiet as possible so that M. could sleep. This time around, I’m grateful that M. will be here with us. I plan to spend the first few weeks postpartum resting & bonding with my tiny little one as much as possible.
