Mother's Day 2008
Well, here it is Day 2 of my Blog. For the past three years I have been working internationally and so much has changed in the way we communicate. Who would have ever thought I would post my private and personal thoughts on a website and people would come to read them! Wild. Hopefully as I progress I will have something of actual real importance to say ;)
Since I just created this blog, some of my postings will be going back a little in time, until I get caught up; but because of their significance I wanted to make sure they made it on here.
This little man is the reason I am actually thinking about taking that big step and becoming a mom. When you get married later in life, like my husband and I, you get pretty set in your ways. You love your couple rituals (being able to stay up as late as like or sleeping in really late-it frightens me when all my friends who are parents think 9:00 am is late!) and so to think about bringing a little one into your lives is a really big, daunting thought. BUT, my nephew Nicholas Andrew makes us really think long and hard about that big decision. He is such a precious angel (although I'm sure his mom doesn't think so at 2:00 am when he's not sleeping!) and I love seeing the world through his eyes. Everything is such an adventure. We don't get to see him nearly enough (he lives in Abbotsford) but when we do we are amazed at how quickly he is changing and growing. He is almost 2 years old and is quickly becoming a little boy. The orchard we photographed him in was supposed to be blooming (the blossoms came late this year year) but we were blown away by all the beautiful color anyway.
