This week I have really been missing the Coatneys and our Sunday night fondue. I can almost hear our kids crying/laughing/fighting in the background as we dip brownies, pound cake, bananas, strawberries and marshmallows into melted chocolate. I miss having late night girls nights at Heidi's and talking with friends about our motherly adventures. I miss playing games with the Webbs and planning vacations together. And today I was really missing Megan painting my toenails because I was too pregnant to do so myself.
But all is well.
I am full of gratitude for my new friends here. Our neighbor and three others have offered to take care of Everett when the time come to have this baby. It's funny how you worry for months and months about how the labor and delivery will go but you have almost no say in the matter... so for so many people to offer their services, it's been a big relief.
I am amazed at the kindness and generosity of others and it just makes me want to pay it forward. I know this world can be a dreaded place sometimes, but truly there are so many good people around.
It was my mom's birthday the other day. So we celebrated from afar and made black and white brownies and build sandcastles. It was a good day!
