Every Valentine's Day from now on, I'll reflect on how I feel right now. Anticipation. Nerves. Excitement. Because tomorrow at this time, I'll be holding our little Half-pint for the first time. And every year from now on, Valentine's Day will not only be a day of flowers and candy and sharing an I love you with your special someone. It'll be a day for T and me where we think about how just one day later we were graced with the best gift ever, the ultimate gift of our love together. I couldn't ask for anything more.
I'm afraid I'll be off the grid for the next few days, though I'm sure you all will understand why :-) I'm not sure how quickly we'll be able to post a picture of her here on the blog, but, if you're a fan of my Facebook page, I will definitely try to post a picture there. Unless something changes between now and tomorrow, we'll be heading to the hospital tomorrow morning around 8, with surgery scheduled for 11 a.m.
T and I want to thank all of you for your support, prayers and for everything over these past 9 1/2 months. All of it has meant so much. I don't know any of you personally, but I feel like I do. And the outpouring we've gotten from people we've never met has been incredibly humbling.
So Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
