LIFE BEFORE YOU

These photos literally bring tears to my eyes.  Perhaps because I am now postpartum and an emotional disaster, but also maybe because I can’t believe that was our little girl tucked so safely within me.  Our little miracle baby.  I wake up every single morning and wonder how the heck we survived life without her.  I know it’s only been 14 days, but honestly, the best 14 days of my whole entire life.

Watching Timothy become a daddy to our little girl has made me fall in love with him 100 times over.  I have never seen him be more selfless or infatuated by anything in my life.  The two of us have been through so much as a couple and I can’t wait to experience life as parents together.  Our days haven’t always been so beautiful, we definitely have gone through our ups and downs, but I am so very blessed to be where we are today.  There is no one else in the world I would rather do this with.   

I never want to forget these moments.  The day we welcomed her to her earthly home.  Her first bath. The car ride home from the hospital. Introducing her to Lady and Belle. The first night together just the three of us.  I want to cherish every single moment. Everyone says they grow up so quickly.  They tell me not to blink because I’m going to miss it all.  I want to make it my life’s mission to make it go by as slow as possible.  To enjoy every single moment as it comes.  Put tasks on hold to focus on the previous moments.  To document whatever I feel is worth documenting.  These are going to be the best moments of our life and I know I can make it last.  Life isn’t guaranteed and that sure scares the hell out of me, so I want to make it count for what it’s worth right now.  

We feel so grateful to have an online family of people who sincerely love and care for us and you guys have shown us (complete strangers) more love than we could have ever dreamed of.  You beautiful humans make us that much richer.  Richer in love, gratitude and faith.  I wish I had the right words to articulate just how grateful we are for your love and support but it almost seems like no words are powerful enough. So thank you. For every single positive thing you’ve sent our way.

I love that this little girl makes me want to do better, to live better.  She has reminded me to never waste my energy on the unnecessary and to appreciate every single thing that we have. She has reminded me so much of just how precious time is.  

So today, if you get the chance, go out of your way for someone else.  Send a compliment every chance you get, write an apology to someone you’ve had on your mind or commit a random act of kindness for a complete stranger.  Do it without purpose or intent and rather just because.  Because life is so short and moments are so precious and the more we put out there, the better the world we will live in….

  3. I have only recently come across your blog during the middle of your pregnancy and the posts you have made are so touching they have brought me to tears on several occasions…I even burst into tears when I saw you gave birth through Instagram. That little girl is so lucky to have you as parents and I am so glad all has turned out well for the three of you. Its so touching and I can only imagine what you have all gone through and how its all so worthwhile when you get to see that beautiful daughter of yours. I cant wait to have children of my own and thank you for showing me how strong someone can be during such difficult times only to be rewarded in the end, It is truly amazing. Stories like yours keep me going and hoping for a family in my future.

    XO Jessica
