two years ago right now, i was still waiting for aaron peter to make his appearance. his due date was June 30 or July 1, and i was convinced he’d come early….and the evening of july 2 i was still waiting. at 11.30 pm, just as i went to make one last bathroom trip before bed BAM! my water broke, and a crazy hour and a half later aaron peter made his appearance outside the womb. poor guy was purple, he came out so fast….fortunately the purple faded:)
these two years have been very challenging. i haven’t had a good night’s sleep in two years. my mood issues have worsened because of that, and because of the constant, incessant demands of two children. i (and we) have in a lot of ways been living in survival mode for two years.
and yet….these of been two years full of the incredible, almost inconceivable reality that a creature came out of my body, and a whole person is evolving out of that strange alien baby. and what a person! aaron peter exudes joy, delight, enthusiasm, and cuteness. he’s outgoing, clearly an extrovert, unafraid of people, of life, full of love. he gives the sweetest hugs and kisses. overall he really is truly is the laid back southern boy i requested! (though it must be said that he moves a little bit more quickly at this point in his life, than his southern daddy:))
