so much to be thankful for

I feel like this year Brand and I have so much to be thankful for and it seems like things are falling into place -even thought it has taken longer than we imagined. Brand started dental school this year, something we've been applying to and thinking about for at least three years. And we are finally having a baby. FINALLY. Our lives are about to change completely but I'm pretty sure it's all we've ever wanted.  We've been blessed with good health, family so ridiculously close, a house to live in, and so much more. 

But, this year, every time I think about what I'm most thankful for I think about this little person kicking me from the inside. Her hiccups, how she stretches her legs which then makes her bum poke out, and that bum -lets talk about that bum- she has had a favorite seat since week 23 and it's right by my belly button.  When we went to the doctor for her 4D ultrasound I got all giddy inside just from looking at her. She has the chubbiest cheeks, a nose and eyes like her mom, and her dad's lips -she's already got the pout-y lip thing down and it makes my heart melt. And she tried smiling for us too, it wasn't a whole smile, but she tried. 

This time last year I remember thinking about where I would be a year from then. My highest dreams were that we would be where we are right now. Oh how grateful I am for dreams that come true. Last year I remember being so upset, devastated, really just down-right-sad because I wanted a baby so bad. It had been something I longed for, for as long as I can remember and that fact that where ever I looked I saw a pregnant belly didn't help either.  

It seems like our lives are starting to make sense, and boy have we worked hard for this life. For all the things we have, all the things we've accomplished, the places we've gotten to see, everything. I'm excited to say that life as I know it is about to change for good. A new life is about to start, a life that I get to impact, I get to teach, a life that I get to love, a life that will be my baby forever. You guys, I cannot wait for this new life. Seven more weeks.
