A few days ago I watched The Wife as she looked at the pictures from our ultrasound. It wasn’t the first time she had studied them — lingered over them. In fact, she carries them with her to work, to meetings, to church, and just about anywhere she might see someone who hasn’t seen the pictures.
As I watched her, it suddenly dawned on me. She’s falling in love. I don’t know why I didn’t notice it before. The signs are classic. Daydreaming, spending an inordinate amount of time thinking about this baby. Every conversation is about the baby. Every activity is about the baby. She is in love with this baby!
It is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. It just makes me fall that much more in love with her. To see her so in love with our child is the most awesome incredible thing I’ve ever seen.
Who says kids are restictive. My life has been expanded already and the critter hasn’t even been born.
