Take That!

8 Oct

I’ve decided I’ve had just about enough of all this guilt and sadness.

Emma had an excellent point.  Just like the rest of us, I DO deserve to be happy.  I deserve to embrace this little life and enjoy every second I am given with it.  Whether I get to keep Sweetpea in the traditional sense or not, I have the right to enjoy this little soul for every second that I can.

So, I took a step.  I ordered Countdown to My Birth and The Belly Book.  And when they arrive?  The calendar is going on my desk, and I will fill out everything I can in the Belly Book.  I want to document this.  I want to hold on for dear life to the hope that is slowly growing inside of me.  I want to embrace how hard I have fallen for our little Sweetpea instead of trying to ignore my ever increasing attachment.

I can make this whatever type of experience I want to.  I control at least this small aspect of it.  So I choose to do this with as much hope and positivity as I can.

Grow, Sweetpea!  GROW!
