Half way there

I am officially 20 weeks pregnant today, so technically that means I'm half way through my pregnancy. Starting tomorrow, I'll have the bulk of the pregnancy behind me! In fact, the cheese in my refrigerator doesn't even expire until a whole 15 days after my due date. That is just crazy.

The weather is already warming up, which means that there is no escaping the fact that summer is around the corner. And at the end of summer, my baby will make his or her arrival.

Soon, my whole world will be turned upside down. And you know what? I can't wait! I can't wait to hold my child for the first time, to take the baby home for the first time, to introduce him/her to the dogs and see how they get along. I can't wait to show the baby off to my friends and family and officially start a new family between the little one and my husband and I.

Of course, today I'm not thinking about the fact that my days of freedom are numbered. And today I'm not thinking about the pain of delivery, or the exhaustion of having a newborn.

Today I'm thinking about how this is just the beginning. And, I'll hopefully be working on baby number two next summer, and baby number three a few years after that. Wow, it's even hard to believe.

I'm not sure I'm ready to be a real grown up yet, but I'm sure as hell ready to give it a shot.
