What a whirlwind! The lowercase finally got over the virus, we rushed to finish shopping and wrapping and packing and planning and left for a week in the midwest. We attended 896823948759824593 family Christmas gatherings, we had portraits taken (I'm still trying to convince Mr. W to post the shot of the three of us) and we drove 10 hours straight through to get home late last night. In a couple of hours, the lowercase and I will be driving into the city to pick up my friend at the train station. She'll be staying with us until New Year's Eve. Should be fun.
I can't believe how much things have changed over the last year. When we moved in, our neighbors across the way were expecting a baby -- she was due in December 05 and the lowercase was expected in January 06. She carried full term -- I, obviously, did not. They moved and a new couple moved in. The new woman was pregnant and due on January 12, 07 -- exactly one year after my due date. I just looked out the window and I see an "It's a Boy!" banner taped to their door. A year ago, I would have been upset that she went so close to the full 40 when I didn't. A year before that, I would have been in a puddle of tears because it's so easy for some to conceive and carry a child. Unreal how quickly things can change. Those things now only bother me when I stop playing with my son and take the time to think about it.
