Week 2: Again
Another year has gone by, and again I find myself wondering where the time went. I feel like I really cherish each moment with them, but when I look back over the year it seems like it all went by soo fast. These babies are growing up - if only I could freeze them in their current age. With my littlest baby hitting 14 months, I have the itch.
Ya, know the have another baby even though I technically still have a little baby itch. It's just that those squishy little cheeks are ovary hurting.
For the past 7 years, I have been pregnant again shortly after that 1 yr birthday mark. But not this time. When Rye was born, my dream of continuing on the popping babies every year changed(Birth story). I had dreams of raising a half dozen children with beautiful blonde and red hair. The perfect combination of his eyes and my milky skin. But it wasn't in the plans for our life.
As I go through this year, I can't help but feel sad at what could have been. Don't hold it against me. I know I am blessed but it doesn't make it all better. But again~ I will trust that the Lord has a bigger plan for my life. He has two babies out there that are meant to be part of our family. We were destined for something bigger.
