Lately a lot of friends & family members have been telling me that Zoe is starting to resemble me more. That's a relief considering that for the first 15 months of her life we looked NOTHING alike....People thought I was her babysitter more often than her mother! Ha ha. The other day, I was looking at these pics of Wes & I at ages 4 & 5 (they hang on the front of my refrigerator door & I spend a lot of time standing there these days). I started to notice a few similarities between Zoe & me and if I looked at our toddler pics long enough & then looked at some recent pics of Zbug, I could see a good mix of us both in her sweet smile. :)
It was 2 years ago today that I took the pregnancy test that read positive and first alerted me of her existence. What an incredible day! I remember waiting the 3 minutes for the test to process & breaking out in a cold sweat. It seemed like an eternity. When the word PREGNANT finally flashed across the little screen I started to jump, scream, cry, and laugh all at once. I was so thrilled!!!!! I was so grateful. Crazy enough, just at that moment of extreme emotion, Wesley felt like he should call me from work. He never called at that time of day, so when my cell phone rang ~ my heart skipped a beat. I tried to act normal when I answered because I wanted to tell him we were pregnant in person...not over the phone. But, he knows me all too well. He knew something was up. Infact, he knew I was pregnant (We have always had this really crazy sixth sense with one another. With this current pregnancy, he knew we were having twins long before any doctor did).
Anyway, looking back, the last 2 years have been the best in my life! I can't believe how lucky I am to be Zoe's mom. She is an awesome person...she has been such a joy and inspiration to me. I will never forget 9/18/06. It was one of the most magical days of my life.
