Since the day those two pink lines (See what I just did there? This here’s a fancy-schmancy high-tech blog, I tell ya!) appeared on my home pregnancy test, I have become a big sentimental mess of an individual. A look shared between mother and baby on a diaper commercial can reduce me to tears. The discovery of Skye’s hat from the hospital found in the back of her baby hat drawer (yes, we have an entire drawer full of just hats) catapults me on a trip down blubbery memory lane. The realization that Starbucks has sold out of cinnamon swirl coffee cakes before I was able to snag one causes me to fall to the floor in a puddle of tears.
Okay, so the last one isn’t exactly a sentimental reaction or a new development. But it is how I started my day today.
Being Sappy McSappyPants and all, I created a video celebrating Miss Skye’s first year of life. I wasn’t going to post it here because it feels oddly intimate — and, other than my hair in the post-birth photos, it isn’t particularly humorous. However, you guys and this site are such a big part of the journey that it only seems right to share it with you. And, hell, let’s be honest: I’m so freakin’ crazy about this kid that I can’t stop myself from telling anyone who will humor me. (Those Starbucks baristas more than earn their pay, believe you me.)
Not to mention we’ve already had the mucus plug talk; hard to get much more “intimate” than that.
Don’t worry, I won’t *SOB* make this sappiness thing *SOB* a *SOB* habit. (My apologies… a pregnancy hemorrhoids ad is getting me all choked up. Ah, memories.)
