Ten minutes to reflect in the morning before you start your day is probably that smartest thing I could ever do! This weekend I am in Gainesville, VA visiting one of my best friends Jessica for the weekend! We have just woken up, the sun is bright, the smell of pork is in the air…ewww but delicious at the same time. We both know it’s going to be a beautiful day!
Why you might ask? Because Jessica’s sister Arlene is bringing home a BABY! Brooklyn Diana Mains was born January 3, 2012 7lbs 11oz. and 21 inches! She is so long! Baby proofing the house and putting up signs that say “It’s a girl’ are definitely chores of the morning because she will literally arrive at any moment now. The exciting part is watching a new life look out into the new world! I can only imagine what baby Brooklyn is thinking when she leaves the hospital:
Baby thoughts: I’m hungry. Who is this lady? It’s too bright, and what’s that smell! Somebody get me outta here!!!!!!!!!
The joy of new life, is a joy that I would like to experience 10-15 years from now. Having a child is the most precious thing in the world and I can’t mess that up! From the moment that child leaves you, she is yours to protect, feed, defend and most importantly love. I am so happy and excited for Arlene, baby Brooklyn and family! So now I’m going to get up and prepare because a baby is coming!
