The best part of the appointment was the doctor’s appreciation of the way Rick and I are choosing to grow our family. When I told him we want to have four children and it happens that they are all coming in pretty quick succession, he said unhesitatingly, “Good job. You are doing the right thing.” A year and a half ago when I was pregnant with Ellie, I never, ever heard such encouraging, beautiful words! I am so happy I have found a doctor who actually seems to truly love babies and families! When I arrived and when I left the office, the receptionist told me sweetly, “congratulations!” Yup, that’s the kind of treatment I’ve been waiting for!:)
Anyways, I have some of the most active children this decade has ever born;) so it will be interesting to see how this little guy/girl turns out to be. Perhaps it is the two cups of espresso I drink most days? Perhaps it is the fact that I keep very active in pregnancy? It is a mystery to me…it truly is but these little Rose children are set for marathon stardom or baseball greatness or climbing Mount Everest or something! Their battery just never slows down as much as I let them tare around the playground each day, it always seems they could be there all day, all night and never feel physically tired! Hey, keeps me fit just keeping on top of them much less fitting more formal exercise in!
Another life beginning. I am in awe once more!:)
