I love looking back at past years to see how much has changed. Three years ago, I was happily on the way to Norway with my Mom and sisters, but I was also starting to realize just how screwed up my cycles were, and I was vacillating between some crazy hope and confusion. That next year was the darkest year of my life, hands down. Two years ago I was newly pregnant with Stella and starting to get into morning sickness hell, but still feeling incredibly blessed to finally at least be seeing a light at the end of the tunnel to motherhood. Last year my parents were out here visiting, so I was able to spend Mother’s Day with my mother, plus my baby who was just learning how to sit on her own. This year, I spent Mother’s Day with my toddler and my husband’s mother, all the while knowing that there is hopefully another little one cooking away in my ute. I’m starting to feel more and more nauseous, so I’m feeling fairly confident that s/he is still growing away in there. It’s amazing how to think about how much changes in our lives from year to year!
