9 months ago...9 months from now...

9 months old has been a strange milestone to come up on. It seems like such a short amount of time has passed since Hannah came into our home. These 9 months have flown by and have been filled with indescribable JOY.
I think the reason I've been thinking a lot about the 9 month mark is because 9 months ago I was coming to the end of a 9 month journey which would change my life eternally. 9 months of pregnancy is a lot longer than 9 months of being a mommy. I loved being pregnant and feeling Hannah inside me and although my body went through some rough things being pregnant I was grateful to be able to carry the sweet little Hannah I love today.

9 months from now will mark the end of a two year period and my brother will finally come home to our family! I wonder if this next 9 months will fly by waiting for his safe return :)

***A side note*** Please excuse the ugly picture lol that is what it looks like to become dilated to a 6 before getting to the hospital lol if I'd have known...I probably would have gone in sooner :)

I love the darling picture of our Hannah!! I can't believe she is nine months old tomorrow, yet it feels like she has always been with us.

Tender post!! I just turned on the computer looking for his e-mail. Nothing yet!

Happy 9 months past and future! It really is incredible how much longer those 9 months inside are compared to the months, years, and decades once they come out.

Enjoy every second of every day of every week of every month of every year...they all start flying by ever so quickly.
