The hard part of documenting birth, hands down, is the on-call ups and downs. I’ve learned the art of estimated due dates and generally try to plan things accordingly but lol babies, you know.

AnneMarie called me early in the morning of me and my boo’s 5th wedding anniversary. We’d been doing lots of reflecting that week already, and the adventure of new life just brings a whole new perspective to those every day dreams and goals. We’re not necessarily ready to jump on the parenting boat, but we sure are ready to love deeper, sacrifice more, andgive give give until our hearts explode.
