As you are reading this, my husband and I are hopefully somewhere holding our baby boy. (That’s assuming this kid doesn’t decide to make a late appearance!) Either way, today, the 26th of May, is my official due date. The day our entire world is destined to change in the most beautiful way. But today represents something else as well: it is my sweet, funny, fiercely missed grandfather’s birthday, and we have all been keeping fingers and toes crossed that he’s told my son how cool it would be to share a birthday with his great grandpa.
I’ve scheduled this post ahead of time to let everyone know that while I may be disappearing for a bit, I won’t be gone permanently. I’ll just be taking some time to learn how to care for a very tiny human being and soaking up every precious moment as a new mother. So, thank you so much to those of you who have been following my blog; I am grateful for every single like, comment, and share. I’ll be back soon to read more of your beautiful work, and will likely be bursting at the seams with poems about my son and every small new thing I’ll be in awe of.
Until then, be well, my friends.
If you’re coming across my page for the first time, thank you for visiting! While I’m away, here are some pieces I hope you might enjoy:

You’re welcome!!!! Welcome Baby Beautiful! 🙂
All the changes ahead, all the ups and downs, all the tears and joy, the sleep deprivation, the moments of unbelievable awe at this new person, the years of watching him grow and become his own person…I am so excited for you and now missing going through all that with my now 19 year old. The days are going to fly for you.
Thank you so much, Lisa. Beautifully said. I’m doing my best to soak in and remember every fleeting moment. 🙂
Awww congrats to you and your hubby. You will be in absolute bliss with that new baby. Take all the time and help you can get. Try and pick up a newspaper the day the baby is born, it’s a nice keepsake for the baby:) best wishes and an easy delivery.
