Few phrases have the ability to change one’s life forever;
I love you…
Will you marry me…
All of these phrases surround us in a whirlwind of emotions.
We relish in the glow of the moment and watch our lives and love grow and change,
But we, as individuals, do not drastically change as a result of these spoken words.
We are going to have a baby…
This one short phrase
This one simple moment in time
Changes our lives forever.
Months of anticipation, appointments, planning.
Months of hopes, fears, and waiting
Wondering how your life will change
Wondering who this baby will be
Waiting to feel the first kick
Waiting to feel the first labour pain
That moment comes that redefines you
That moment that ends all of the waiting
That one phrase that completes you
“Congratulations, it’s a GIRL!”
Dedicated to the three Chicklets that have forever changed my essence and my life.
