just the two of us
I just realized that tonight is the last night that Jared and I will be just the two of us for a long, long time. Tomorrow the kids will be here for the summer and sometime between now and August, our little Asher will arrive. The reality of this hit me quite suddenly and along with it some strong emotions and then tears. Blame those on the pregnancy hormones. With all the craziness that has been our life the past few weeks, it just hadn't really occurred to me that our time as just the two of us would really be over so soon. And I feel like we haven't really been able to enjoy it. I've been on bed rest and Jared has been working on his thesis revisions. And we still have an apartment full of boxes.
We are so excited to have the kiddos with us. It's very hard to have them so far away, but we've also been really lucky to have so much time as just the two of us to enjoy our "newlywed" time. And now here we are at the end of it. Tonight is the last night we can go out without kids or a babysitter. Crazy. The sad thing, and I think the reason behind the tears, is that we are quite limited in what we can do because of my overactive uterus. But we decided we'd go out to dinner. Now I just need to decide where.
