As usual, Chris had to wake me up for work...but this morning, two years ago, I snuck past him into the bathroom and shut the door (unheard of in our house).
The day before, I had gone to a hip little store downtown during my lunch break to buy something for Chris to tell him the news. I was so sure of myself that I as soon as I saw that little yellow onesie with 'Homemade' written across the front, I knew it was the perfect way to tell him that we were pregnant.
I hadn't even taken the test yet.
So, this morning, all I needed was the proof.
It was positive. right away.
And I was positive; sure that our baby would be coming home with us.
Today starts the countdown of remember whens and 'this day two years ago'...
I don't resent the memories and happy excitement of these 9 months two years ago. They are a connection to Owen; something of my little boy that I will always have.
Memories and hope...
I hold you close to my heart.
