time may change me

Hey Ivy,
Real quick, I just want to show you the latest additions to your room. Both curtain and bunting courtesy of your Grandma Mary:

So you have that to look forward to.

Ollie seems to be under the impression that the rocking chair belongs to him. I'll let you two work that out.

So today is the day we scheduled for you, or for me I guess, to be induced. But we cancelled an hour after scheduling. When I requested the procedure, I was at my rope's end. I'd heard one too many horror stories about full term losses, I was uncomfortable, and I was all around tired of having absolutely no control over the situation. But then after coming home and talking it over with Stephen, I realized that that's kind of how it's always going to be, right? You're your own person and you're going to make your own decisions and as much as it will probably drive me nuts and as often as I'll find myself at the end of my rope and unable to control whatever given parenting situation, I have to trust you. Which is what we're doing now. You'll come when you're ready, right? Just know that we're ready for you.


  1. I love the room! I think every pregnant woman feels like she'll be pregnant forever... I did! Carly was a day late and Holland was born on her due date and I felt like I had been pregnant for a year! Make sure to enjoy your sleep now and go out to a movie, you won't be able to enjoy either again for a while :) Good luck with everything, she'll be perfect!

  2. I found your blog through!

    I'm a writer (and I'm mormon too) who lives in South Denver. It's great to stop by and visit your blog!

  3. you can do it meg! i believe in you!

  4. She will come when she's ready, you're right. Hang in there!

    P.S. IVY, be nice to your poor mother!

  5. Oh Meg, you'll be such a great parent. This post could've been from a Love & Logic book. If Ivy is still not here by February, then I think you'd better take control ;) Also, the curtains are lovely. I wish that I could see it in person.


Don't be shy.
