I was unloading the dishwasher (oh, the glamour!) and happened to overhear a sweet voice playing in the room next to the kitchen.
PS- Locating the playroom right next to the kitchen? Pure gold. I LOVE being close to where my kids play all the time! Bonus: there are doors that shut and block the sound really well if needed. 🙂
Anyhow. Unloading the dishwasher, and I hear Julianne playing with some Fisher Price Little People characters and talking about how this one was the mommy and this one was the daddy.
My heart skipped a beat.
This time last year? She still didn’t know what “mommy” and “daddy” truly meant.
And now? She does.
Oh, does she ever.
I cannot believe that we are SO close to the day we first saw her.
And so, like a mama counts down and remembers the final days before giving birth to a new baby, I am filled with memories as I think about the countdown to Julianne-Day. It’s completely surreal.
