Remembering the Old Days

In 3 days Josiah is going to be 9 months old. Folks, that how long he spent inside of me. What the heck?! He's been here transforming our lives long enough that, not that I forgot, but I guess I did forget, what life was like without him.

Due to Rob having to wait to get his passport back with his new Permanent Resident Visa, him and Josiah are staying in Canada until that comes (hopefully no more than a week!) while I came back to Texas to work. So I'm going back to the days of no child and no husband.

And I'm just not sure what to think of my temporary freedom.

Josiah is the joy of my heart and the apple of my eye. He has caused me to love so deep that only a fellow mom can understand such love. Whenever he is asleep I look forward to him waking up so I can see his precious smile and kiss his sweet cheeks. Whenever I go out alone to the store or gym, I can't wait to be back home and snuggle my baby. He has changed my life and taken my 'freedom' alright. But life is so much better with my little boy.

Now I'm getting my 'freedom' back for a week. And the house is so quiet; a little bit of spunk, and love, and life is not here. He's up north bringing sweet joy and smelly poop to all of his Canadian family. I don't miss these single days, these days without children. Clearly getting married and having babies is God's perfect plan for me, because I want nothing more. This is gonna be a hard week ya'll!

I did have an amazing time in Canada though. The weather was beautiful, family was awesome, my phone was turned off the whole time and it was so peaceful! Memories made, pictures taken, good times had. Hope to get to go back for Christmas.
