It's crazy how such a tiny person can bring about such big change. Is it time for him to eat? Does he need his diaper changed? Is he too hot or too cold? Why is he crying??! Everything now revolves around baby 'Ry'-in a good way :).
This weekend I took another step in the shoes of my new role as mommy. I said good-bye to a friend of 8 years-my car. Not just any car, but the car that, in my mind, represented my youth. She was with me through the end of my senior year of high school, college, and 4 years of marriage. She was my baby.
I don't know why but I always seem to attach memories to things. I think that's why I always struggle in letting go. But this time, it was easier. I still cried, but it was easier. I am so thankful for this little new life, my new role, and this new adventure. It's good for me to let go. It's good for me to change.
I'm all done growing up now, right? ;)
