People have asked me if it seems like just yesterday that I was handed my baby for the first time. Honestly, that feels like several years ago. Ada has been on 14 airplanes and 6 trains. I've probably changed two dozen diapers in the air. She's been in 7 States and 6 different countries. We've lived in 4 different homes. Those few numbers alone remind me of how many beautiful changes we have undergone in the last year. Life is a constant flux. It's a metamorphosis of form, understanding and relationships. It's a transformation making things more complex and more real and more nuanced as time passes.
This year has been full in so many ways. Most of all, it has made my heart full. It was strange to feel it stretch when I was an expectant mother, but to watch as every inch of that space be filled with love has been incredible.
Truly, my cup runneth over.
p.s. Our episode of House Hunters International aired on Friday. We haven't been able to watch it yet (we listened to it and squinted at the screen as my parents held their webcam up to the TV. Thanks guys!). You can read about it here.
