/ The RE's Muse: The times, they are-a-changing

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

The times, they are-a-changing

Yesterday was a big day in our house--big in the sense that miss J officially started real, live, gen-u-wine hands and knees crawling yesterday. Yee-haw!

She'd been belly scooting for several weeks, hands just a pulling herself along while she scooted on her belly but now, now she has entered the land of the fully mobile baby. And now she, our home, the dogs, and everything else, will never be the same.

To see her crawling along last night, keeping pace with us from her room on one side of the house to ours on the other side (ours is a split plan home), and to see the incredible delight in her eyes and on her face while she did so, was too much. How I cried, but they weren't tears of sadness...they were of joy. Joy at her happiness and at how incredible it is to see the world unfold before her. It truly does blossom...

though words are inadequate.

Congratulations! Yep, you're right -- nothing will ever be the same, particularly if by "the same" you mean "clean" and "unbroken." We have nothing nice anymore, and we probably won't for another 6 or 7 years. :-) But it's totally worth it.

Crawling? Oh Dee - I can't even imagine how exciting (and worrisome!) this is going to be.

Congratulations on yet another milestone.

Excellent job, little one. Thanks for giving me a peek into my not-too-far-off future.

Yay for mobility!
