How quickly and certainly that wish came true. It was only 10 days later, a bright and chilly Monday morning, that I stood in my bathroom staring down at a positive pregnancy test. Another one. One that, at last, would come to beautiful fruition on a hot September morning.
2008, you've been great. You brought celebration, joy, completion, closure, and so much laughter. Friendships new and friendships reconciled. Health and comfort. Love in new proportions, unimaginable proportions. Anderson.
Tonight, a low key dinner of Mexican and margs with the family and little A. We'll surely be back home and tucked in bed well before midnight out here in the Pacific time zone. But we'll wake up to 2009, a year I can only hope will be nearly as blessed as the one we say goodbye to this evening. Minus the whole "having a baby" thing. We're all set in that department for awhile. So says J.
One fun Christmas celebration down (Frazier/Texas Christmas), one to go (Aus-Frazier/California Christmas) as soon as J gets his fanny to the county of Orange (the 2nd!) I'll leave you with some holiday miscellaneous: Griffin's least favorite Christmas gift and a whole lotta Anderson- A's favorite Christmas gift, A enjoying Christmas Eve with his Mimi and Papaw, A ready for a morning walk, A wondering what the heck happened to his favorite finger last night at a beachside restaurant. Happy New Year, dear Internet! Much love. xoxo
