Two Years Ago...


This time two years ago, I was fairly hopped up on narcotics, going in and out of wakefulness, only vaguely aware that I no longer had a baby in my belly. I had yet to lay more than a cursory, bleary, weepy eye on Ethan, as he was holed up in the NICU. With Husband attending to and gushing over our newborn, and my belly, which up to this point had been home to my little one, empty, it was probably the loneliest night of my life. Go figure.

So tonight, as Husband, mom and I watched Ethan running back and forth across the living room, screeching at decibels that were making neighborhood dogs twitch, I was awash with joy at the fact that I'm as far from lonely as I've ever been in my life. How could I be lonely when I have this??

You know, he still looks like that photo of the two of you. He's such a cute little man, and I am proud to have watched him grow in the last two years, via this blog.

Happy Birthday Ethan!
