Happy Belated Mother's Day! This was a lovely post. Being pregnant really is exciting and then of course parenting an infant/baby/toddler is that much more exciting. It really is an amazing process of growth; I didn't think I could love my son anymore than I did yesterday but today I do. I love him more and more each day. I am actually stopping by to say that I really appreciated your post on Julie's blog about the Catholic Church's teachings on ART. I was hoping you might write something, knowing that with your formidable smarts you'd do the topic justice.

Happy Mother's Day to you! I'm rather similar in thinking that I certainly wouldn't appreciate this as much if it had come easily. And I'll add my thanks to Kate's for your post on Julie's blog; I haven't got the theological chops to get into that (also my son was tugging on my leg and I didn't have much time to write) but I was hoping you would happen along.

So sweet!

A very Happy Mother's Day to you Arwen (although a tad belated)! :)

Lovely, lovely post.

What a beautifully written post, Arwen! Happy belated Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day, Arwen.

Well, golly. I wondered why I had literally ten times more hits today than on any given day. I'm glad you liked the post. It's hard for me to celebrate Mother's Day without remembering that the road to motherhood is long and hard for way too many women.

I'm glad you had a good first Mother's Day, and I hope that each successive one from now on is better than the last.

Happy Mother's Day, Arwen! Many blessing on your little family!

I'm glad he made the day so special. What a thoughtful gesture.

I really liked and appreciate the post you left on Julie's blog. I echo everything you said.
Congratulations on your Mother's Day, and I look forward to reading more now that I found you.

ok, first of all, congradulations. Second of all, who in their sane mind would have the audicity to ask you if you wore the same cloths every day...or if you washed them. Kidding or not, that was just wrong. See, I didnt look at the comments so I didnt know about that until you brought it up, I am emberassed for them. Anyone who knows anything about you would have so easily figured it out. You are kinder than I, Arwen my dear.
I am glad you had a wonderful mothers day. I know you will make fathrs day a special one for Bryan as well.

Just found your blog and I wanted you to know that I love it! I spent way too long reading through archives yesterday. . . anyhow, good luck with your pregancy journey! It sounds like you will be a truly amazing mother.

Happy Mother's Day. Good for him, making the day special. At Mass on Mother's Day the priest said a blessing for all mothers and grandmothers and included women trying to become mothers and dealing with infertility and loss. It was nice to have them remembered and included too!

Bryan is a sweetie! I am so happy for you on your first Mother's Day.

You have traveled far my friend. This baby is much deserved and will be well loved! :)

And you look FAB pregnant.

Happy belated Mother's Day, Arwen!

Happy Mother's Day, and, oh, such congratulations to you! I hadn't read for awhile (due to my new baby who came along in March, thus cramping my blog-reading time) and I was just thrilled to sign on yesterday and hear your good news. And I have to add that the amazing 9 hours of sleep I got one night when Else was 7 weeks old (amazingly early for a breast-fed baby to sleep that long, in my opinion) was by far the longest stretch of sleep I'd had since I got pregnant. So that part doesn't get better for awhile-but the real part, the baby part, is amazingly better (and harder and funnier and weepier) than I could have imagined before my girls came along.


I just wanted to say how very happy I am for you. What a beautiful gift you have received. I don't read your blog daily right now. I will never experience a pregnancy and although I have three beautiful children through adoption pregnancy is still a topic hard for me to bear. Please forgive me. I am truly happy for you though and I wanted to let you know that. You deserve it and I couldn't be more thrilled for you!
