What's this?? A blog entry?! Surely not... I haven't written anything in what? 37 years?
Man. So much to say.
Next week I'll write the obvious post about our week in the NICU with Mr. Liam, but for now I'll show you a glimpse of life around here:
Life is pretty awesome in a toddler's eyes when the morning starts with a trip to the basketball court in the morning.
We're obsessed with basketballs right now.
And then there's this guy who sleeps through it all. Hop on, Liam- you were born into a moving family. Come along on our adventures! (I have decided this is one of the huge differences between having one child and having two children. When Roman was born, life stopped and centered around him. With Liam...well, he went to the zoo when he was 2 weeks old. LOL)
And then there's mama. I'm keeping it real with a cup o' joe and the camera. Someone's gotta supervise all the action. ;)
(Notice how I am brilliantly hiding my make-up-less face with my coffee cup. I thought that was genius.)
To my dear friends who have tried to call to no avail, I apologize. Life returns to the "new normal" on Monday- though I have no idea what that looks like yet. Until then I am treasuring time with my mom and my husband (and two boys!) because they're not always here.
And one of my goals in this new chapter is to [continue to?] be present. I don't want to be the mom who sits on her phone talking while her husband and son play basketball in the morning sun. I want to be the cheerleader on the sidelines. Now there's a visual... Heck, I don't even want to be the mom who is too busy taking pictures of the moment and, in so doing, misses time to revel in the treasure that it is.
I've been really aware of the special moments that life holds right now.
And I'm holding on tight.
