due date

two weeks ago, taher and i welcomed yusuf into our lives. and hearts. and arms.

life has, of course, changed drastically and this tiny little person has relegated me to a life of feedings, diapers, very small clothing and endless conversations about poop. and i completely love him for it.

i keep looking at him and thinking, wow, it was you who was inside my tummy all that time. growing bigger, kicking me, being the subject of our musings and our anticipation. we waited all this time for someone we couldn't even begin to imagine, and all that time it was you.

i am amazed that he is finally here. it's been hard work thus far, and i'm sure it will continue to be hard, but it is, at the risk of sounding cliche, the most rewarding thing ever.
