Oh it is Love
You know what? Last year I remember thinking, “this will probably be our last Christmas without a baby.” We had already been trying for quite some time, and Christmas 2010 seemed so far away. Twelve whole months of possibilities. Maybe our baby wouldn’t be born yet, but surely he or she would be well on the way.
Time flies. Twelve months of testing, poking, prodding, wishing, waiting, hoping, wanting… still no baby. Still no SIGN of baby.
Christmas is when I miss our baby the most. I felt a little bit sad writing our Christmas letter. Our family picture looks like an engagement picture. We are young and in love… and don’t have any children. Any news our family might have is overshadowed by pregnancies and births. It isn’t really fun to feel stuck and left behind.
Luckily, I have the very best husband in the world. I say it all the time, but it’s true dang it! I am SO SO SO grateful for our family, as little as it is.
Yesterday, we were sitting in the office, and Spencer signed on to his facebook account to retrieve some addresses for Christmas cards. As I was writing the addresses down, Spencer foolishly left to get himself a snack… leaving his beloved facebook page to my devices.
I had just enough time to change his facebook picture to a picture of my mom and to sign out of his account.
Spencer realized his folly too late, and came rushing into the office hollering, “I made a stupid mistake!”
He had to pry me away from the keyboard to log back in to his account and assess the damage. He did change his picture, but not before one of our friends had commented that he sure looks a lot like his mother-in-law.
This wasn’t the first time this happened. We jump at the opportunity to change the other person’s profile picture/status if given the chance. We just love to laugh and tease and have fun. I love that Spencer is my best friend.
Even if we have to wait ten more years (but sheesh, I REALLY hope not!) to find our baby, I’m glad I get to wait with my sweetheart.
P.S. (Why I'm P.S.ing a blog post I don’t know, it just seemed like the right thing to say…) We have been having lots of fun making comic strips lately, like the up top. I’ll have to share more sometime. They make me giggle.
