Five years is a long time to wait for a baby.
A really long time.
When you compare five years to 40 weeks…pregnancy flies by.
When you’re trying to have a baby for any amount of time, let alone years, you already live your life in weeks.
Week one: Period.
Week two: Ovulation and copulation.
Week three: Waaaaaiiiitttiiinnngggg.
Week four: Stick peeing.
Back to week one with more Ben and Jerry’s than the month before.
There is a room set up with a crib, a rocking chair and a changing table.
There are tiny freshly washed clothes in a new dresser.
There are hundreds of diapers and wipes tucked away in a closet.
There are tiny little baby treasures from all over the country just waiting.
There is a curly haired imp who is already blaming her little sister for things.
There is a man who is going to be a father to two daughters.
And a girl who still can’t believe this is really happening to her.
