I am slowly accepting that my life is transitioning. I do not like change. Let me say that again - I do not like change. So the process of accepting the fact that my days of pregnancy and newborns is over is a tough one for me. But as evidence that this change is in fact happening, the following items no longer reside in our home: a Boppy, a Bumbo, A Baby Bjorn, a Snugli, a baby swing, a bouncy seat and as of this past Sunday - maternity clothes.

And only a few tears have been shed - I think I'm doing pretty well. I'm focusing on the list of things that await us in a life filled w/ only "big kids" - Disneyland, quick weekend trips to Chelan, regular date nights with my hubby, family devotions, family movie nights, and lots of lots of sporting events. These are all good things.

I'm learning that it's okay to cherish the long as I keep looking ahead. God has been so faithful - I know He has great things in store.
