Our new normal looks a whole lot different than our 3 weeks ago normal. But honestly, it's the best normal we've ever known. Thank you Lord for this glorious gift.
I'm glad Neil made it to the room in time, I'm glad I listened to my heart and went in Friday morning, I'm glad they were operating when her heart beat dropped out so they could get to her ASAP, I am just truly thankful. She's perfect. And we are so in love.
Guilt sucks. Because it creeps in so slowly and steadily, sometimes you don't even notice. Peace is awesome. Because it overwhelms your heart and calms your every thought.
I am at risk for pre-term labour. Which I guess will feel different than a normal 'on time' labour, so I have a list of things to be on the look out for. I have begun the dilating process, and because I am only 30 weeks, obviously we don't want the baby to come out anytime soon!

The day before Mother's Day we spent the day celebrating in style with friends and family the beautiful life that is Zoe! Grandparents came from 4 different towns across SK and MB, Auntie came from Vancouver, Great Grandma who shares a birthday and turned 92 on Mother's Day even came to celebrate with us. It was a fabulous day I won't soon forget.
When someone tells you they are now carrying a human baby the size of a lego man that will grow into a watermelon within 9 short months, please do not respond with "oh, wow! ...
