"In those days, we finally chose to walk like giants & hold the world in arms grown strong with love & there may be many things we forget in the days to come, but this will not be one of them."

Awakening - Brian Andreas

There have been so many moments in the last 3 months that have caused me to stop and attempt to soak it all in. Smelling Julia's hair as she's snuggled in my arms after a bath or watching her squeal with delight as Charles attempts to impersonate a loon in one of her storybooks - I just have this feeling like no other. The kind of feeling that I know I will look back on and remember how life altering this all has been (and continues to be). Although things will just keep getting better from here, there is nothing that compares to the precious and uncharted territory of life with a newborn. There is so much that we have learned about this child and so much that she continues to teach us. I transition back to work this week and I couldn't help but look up the above quote from Brian Andreas. This is how I feel. My, we have grown. And we will never be the same.
