Its almost midnight and Im wide awake while everyone else is sleeping. Thomas is snoring in the bedroom, Natalie is sleeping in her swing, and my brother Mike is asleep in the floor by my feet in the living room. We have a lot of people now living in this little condo that I thought I would be living in alone a year ago at this time. Its amazing what can happen in one year.
Natalie is now 12 weeks old. Its hard to believe that she is 3 months already! It is also hard to believe that I go back to work in two weeks. I dont want to have to leave my baby! At least Mike will be taking care of her during the day for awhile. Thats why he moved here…to be her Uncle Ma-Nanny (male nanny). Thomas and I are trying to help him get back on his feet. He’s struggled since he got out of the military a year ago, and its a perfect arrangement for all 3 of us.
In about 22 minutes it will be one full year since Thomas and I first exchanged email communications. I never would have believed I would be where I am today this time last year. Never in my wildest imaginations would I believe that I would be married and have a 3 month old! Isnt God amazing? Ive never been more happy in my entire life…the only thing that could make it even better…a bigger house, lol. Im believing God will open that door as well here soon.
