But now, in the last few days of my pregnancy, fashion is the last thing I can think about! I wear the same 2 shirts over and over because they are the only ones that fit over my bump, and the same 2 pairs of pants, and I’m okay with that. (I’m not really going too many places these last days anyway- it’s pretty hard to get around when you waddle instead of walk!) I guess that means I’m truly becoming a mom already, because all I can think about is him! When is he coming out? Does he have enough room in there? What did that twinge mean, am I about to go into labor? And most importantly, who is this person inside me going to be and how can I be there for him?
I love that as the weather changes from summer to fall, my life also changes: Welcoming a new life for the new season. It feels fitting that my new path in life begins as we usher in the time of year of beginnings: new school year, holidays, and well, even new television premieres (I’ll be needing those shows to get me through late night feedings!)
As I look out the window, and watch the leaves start to fall, I realize I’m shedding the old me too—to gear up for my own special new season.
