I’m still reeling from the reality of another child in our family. My son, Micah, is amazing. I’m still in shock. With our first child, Katie, we had nine months to obsess over every little detail of what we would do when she was born. This time around, we were trying to sell our house, trying to force open the door to a new season of life, keeping up with a toddler, and Micah sort of just crept up on me. I was so busy with life and suddenly it was time for him to be born.
I still feel like I’m recovering from the shock of what it means to have two children. But every time I hold him and hear his little sleeping whimper, I know this is the best possible outcome of 2010.
Welcome to the world, Micah. You are my firstborn son. I am amazed.
