Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

oh, the hormones.

earlier today i was writing my first blog about this new baby, and i was talking to a friend on an instant message and just crying and crying. all i could think was, "i can't take care of a baby. i'm too young to have a baby. will my relationship with landon suffer? we've only had eight short months together alone. i want to do fun, young people things still. now i'm gonna have a baby! i can't have a sip of tequila for at least 10 months, maybe longer with breast feeding!" i know, that last one was kind of silly.

but i just ate something. and i read a long internet article that discussed each of the new things that happens to baby and mom each week in a 40 week pregnancy. i even read a detailed description of labor and birth!

and now i'm smiling. was it just the veggie sandwich or...? being pregnant is a miracle. i know that. i'm excited about this process.

you people are gonna have to bear with me. i sound like i'm crazy, but i promise, i'm not. before you get too into it, heed the warning. emotions come and go with the seconds. it's incredible and ridiculous at the same time.

won't you come along for the ride...

Congratulations! I only know you through Natalie and cyber-space, and our brief connection with the Dove commercial... but CONGRATULATIONS! It's funny how I don't know you personally, but I am over the moon excited for you! LOL, the Internet makes this such a small world... so just wanted to let you know that prayers for your little miracle are coming all the way from Tennessee! ~ Caroline
