Thursday, April 9, 2015, at 11:00 in the morning, is the day our reality changed forever. On that day, at that exact moment, I found out we were pregnant for the first time with our daughter Annabelle. And though Matt wouldn’t know about our surprise gift we were being given until later that night, our world was being completely reshaped on that beautiful, mild Spring morning as we sat on the phone and I tried my hardest not to blurt out the news that I was finding out right then and there in the glow of the bright morning light that flooded the bathroom and my heart. From that point on we were no longer a family of two but now a family of three. I know we’ve said this before on here but wow, how so much can change in just 365 days. Here we are, Saturday April 9, 2016 at 11:00 in the morning a whole year later. A whole year since we ushered in the beginning of a new season of life. A whole year since we found out we were parents. A whole year since we realized it wasn’t just the two of us anymore but now we had a little Sweet P to think about, look after, provide and plan for. It’s amazing how having a baby can change your whole outlook on life. It’s amazing how Annabelle made everything since that day seem exponentially more important. How she made experiences seem more vivid. How she has filled our life and our relationships with so much more depth and meaning. We don’t do anything just for ourselves anymore. Now we do it for her too. Living out our faith, our health, our finances, keeping the state of our relationship growing. It’s not just for our benefit but for hers. It’s to model what we want for her in life. It’s to give her a future. To disciple her. And to think that seeing two little pink lines appear on a pregnancy test a year ago could do all that?!
We love you Annabelle Jane Pomeroy and are so thankful that God decided to let us in on such a wonderful surprise that He was giving us when we found out about you exactly one year ago today! You truly are such a good and perfect gift!
We loved you yesterday. We love you today. And we will only grow to love you more tomorrow our sweet girl.
Daddy & Momma
