It must be the hormones...

Has it been a whole week since I last blogged?? Not sure where the time went this past week. Lots of friends with babies being born, spent some time with Chad as Brynn and I tagged along on another business trip, and reunited with my Delta Zeta sisters at the Crimson Lounge at Hotel Sax downtown Chicago. It was a good week. Still feeling the gurgling in my belly and the the never ending need to nap whenever possible, but I'm in week 13 now, so hopefully things will start making a turn for the better any day now.

Speaking of pregnancy, my hormones must be on high alert because I just caught myself fighting back the tears as I listened to the new Darius Rucker song on the radio "It Won't Be Like This For Long." You can watch the video here or you can read the lyrics below:

He didn't have to wake up
He'd been up all nite
Lay'n there in bed listen'n
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It gonna be OK

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll look back laugh'n
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
It wont be like this for long

Four years later bout four thirty
She's crawling in their bed
And when he drops her off at preschool
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says what can I do
She says now don't you worry
This will only last a week or two

It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll drop her off
And she wont even know your gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It wont be like this for long

One day soon she'll be a teenager
And at times you'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the aisle
And he'll raise her veil
But right now she up and cry'n
And the truth is that he don't mind
As he kisses her good night
And she says her prayers
He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watch'n her it breaks his heart
Cause he already knows

It wont be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
Yeah this phase is gonna fly by
He's try'n to hold on

It wont be like this for long
It wont be like this for long

Wow, I just read the first verse and can feel the tears burning behind my eyes. For those of you who know me, I am not sap or a hopeless romantic, but I do love a good song that really hits to the heart of a matter. When I was listening to this song I was thinking about my baby girl and how fast the past (almost) 3 years have flown by. I was also thinking about how I shouldn't mind that she comes in our room every night at approx. 2:15 a.m. and asks if she can lay with us. I also had to laugh to myself at how this very morning at 6:00 a.m. she rolled over in my bed and asked me to come lay in her bed with her instead of her laying with me in my bed. I said, "No, sorry, I am not getting up now. Ask your dad." And she did, and he got up without a word and followed her into her princess room and snuggled with her in her twin bed. About 20 minutes later I heard her crawling back into my bed into his warm spot. She curled up and slept for another three hours. Poor dad got stuck in the little bed by himself. Kinda funny.

This is one of the last stinky diapers Chad had to change since she is a big girl now. Monkey see, monkey do. Think he'll miss this? Good thing we have another on the way so he can do this all over again :)
