Wrapping It Up
So technically today is Nia's due date, and I think that ship has sailed and unless something happens tomorrow isn't looking so likely either so now it's anyone's guess. I'm sure you can imagine how much we want to meet her and now it's like Christmas has come and gone and we're still not allowed to open the presents.
I have been archiving this blog since once Nia is born we are moving to a new blog since this was just to chronicle our journey through pregnancy. During the process I have been reading the posts and looking at the pictures and can't believe how quickly 9 months have flown by. I can still remember Melissa and I having the discussion about wanting to start a family. I remember how guilty I felt because of my daughter living so far away that having another child would make her feel like I was replacing her which could never happen.
I think about how our lives are going to change forever. I think about how truly in awe I am of Melissa and how she has handled everything during all of this. I think about all the things we decided on concerning things like discipline, food, guidance, and more and how allot of it will go out the window because each child is different and you really can't predict the personality of your kid in utero. I think about never ending up on the Maury Show. I think about a little Melissa running away from us when we try and comb her hair after we wash it. I think about all the people in our lives that are no longer with us that will never get to meet Nia, some of which Gillian was fortunate to spend time with. I think about the shoes she has, and shoes she'll get. I think about what her laugh will sound like and if she'll be ticklish like her mom, or not like I am. I think about Nia spending time with her big sister Gillian. I think about how her grandmothers will spoil her like no ones business. Most of all, I think about how fortunate I am to be going down this road with such an amazing partner.
Bring on the dirty diapers and sleepless nights!!!
