Pardon me while I state the obvious, but it FINALLY has sunk in.
I have spent the past few years avoiding anything baby related. I never let my cell phone out of sight knowing that it would be the delivery agent for our news when it came. Everyday was being lived just to pass time till we learned of our child.
Today that changed.
About halfway through a meeting this afternoon, I motioned for my cell phone. After shuffling in panic for a few moments looking for it, I realized I must have left it on my desk. In it’s place I grabbed my jotter which also serves as a device to keep Peanut’s pictures crisp and close. Later in the day, I signed up for weekly updates from B@bycenter.com. While reading about what my 7 week old should be doing right now it hit me.
We have a beautiful little boy!! A son. A child. We have someone who we can show the world. Someone else in our family to love and adore.
Even though he is not with us in person yet, Peanut has already become our son.
