Our first due date came and went this past week. I knew it was coming up, and then somehow it slipped past. And I'm okay with that. I looked back on everything that has happened in the past nine months, all of the things that probably wouldn't have happened if we would have had the baby still. Jordan and I have both grown in our careers, and as employees. We made the decision to move into a bigger place. We decided to finally get a dog. Every step has been in the right direction. I'm not going to tell you it's been easy. For a while, for a good long while, every day was a struggle. When our second loss happened it all just became numbing. But life kept going, as it does. We learned to live our lives differently, to embrace this extra time and use it to grow as individuals. It has definitely been an eye opening experience. Having a baby was something I took for granted, something I thought would easily happen again when we were ready. Now we know better.
Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive through all of this! We really do have the greatest family and friends :)
Happy Due Date Baby Pike
