This is Life! In the past few years, I have gone from being a single mommy of one precious baby girl to a wife and mommy of TWO precious girls.
B and I have known each other for years. We went to the same church, same school, had the same crowd of friends, but I never, not once thought about dating him (love you, honey!). If you were to ask him, he’d tell you the same thing. He never thought about me outside of friends either. We graduated high school a year apart.
He went to work. I went to college.
After Davyn was born, I was extremely picky about letting people in her life. I wanted what was best for her and I meant that’s what she was going to have. When she was 14 months old, B and I went on a date totally prompted by a mutual friend and a free meal, right? We saw each other for a while and ended up calling things off (via text…still sore about this one. 🙂 ).
A mere 3 months later, at a wedding shower for our friends and with a little extra courage, I was telling him how much I missed him and wanted to give us another shot. He tells me that he was completely done with our relationship and was moving on. I find it hard to believe he wasn’t still madly in love with me because just 5 months after I professed my heart to him, he proposed to me and we were married 4 months later. Whoa…talk about fast track.
Did I mention that D loves B? I mean loves, loves him. She called him Daddy on her own without our prompting. Did I mention that B loves D? I mean “make my heart swell” loves her? Happy Wife, Happy Life? Happy Mommy and Happy Wife, Happier Life!
Two and a half months after we were married, 3 weeks after a major career change for me, we find out I’m expecting. Whoa…remember what I said about fast track? This WAS planned…it just happened sooner than planned, like 4 months sooner than planned. BUT…we got our precious Millie.
Being a mom to 2 girls is amazing. I thought my heart was full before, but now it’s bursting at the seams. I love watching the bond between D and M. D loves being a big sister and I love to watch M smile at her when she comes around or starts talking to her. These are my happy moments. These are my girls. This is my family. I’m so thankful.
