On January 31st, I always pause to remember what this day felt like in 2011. Three years ago today, I found out I was going to be a mom... though I had no clue I would get to be her mom.
As I've blogged about before, I will never, ever forget the very vivid details of that cold January morning -- the way my heart was beating so fast while I waited for the lines to pop up, and even faster still when I tiptoed into our bedroom to tell T the news he had dreamed of hearing. It's crazy to think that at that moment, my three-foot-tall little girl was just a poppyseed-sized ball of cells in my tummy.
Was it the first and last time I'll see two pink lines that promise the opportunity to create a new life? To snuggle a newborn? To raise a perfect, innocent little being? Who knows. What I do know is that on that day, I had absolutely no clue just how incredible being a mama would be... especially a mama to my life-loving Cameron Kate. And for that day, for those two pink lines, for her... I will always feel incredibly blessed.
