Today was everyone waking up happy and a few minutes early and snuggling and giggling in bed together. Today was seeing a voice mail from our birth mom but not having time to check it as we rushed out the door. Today was sewing a button my shirt at work right away because it popped off as I was getting dressed. Today was a confusing, broken conversation between myself and birth mom and birth dad...something about baby pictures. Today was a call from a translator a minute later telling me the baby had been born at 4 a.m. - six weeks earlier than expected. Today was exciting and overwhelming and exhilarating. Today was my tribe of coworker friends (I consider them all friends) coming together to think for me when I couldn't see straight - buying diapers, ordering flowers, booking hotels, booking rental cars, researching flights, making sure I ate, and hugging me nonstop. Today was my friends reminding me to stop freaking out and call my husband already. Today was constant shaking. Today was trying to finish work project and my boss telling me to leave already. Today was a box of diapers, wipes, and formula magically showing up on my desk. Today was my sister screaming so loud that her children thought something was horribly wrong. Today was my brother dropping everything to book flights for me. Today was scrambling all over town trying to find which store sells preemie clothes. Today was holding tiny onesies and having a sobbing fit in the middle of Walmart because I am so blessed. Today was ten bazillion texts and phone calls. Today was talking out loud to myself constantly because I kept forgetting what I was doing. Today was my parents dropping everything and driving nine hours to be here for me and Joci. Today was my husband giving me my Mother's Day presents early. Today was a touching conversation with Joci's birth mom about how I did a wonderful job making her feel calm and at ease and I can do it again. Today was five loads of laundry. Today was my brother watching Joci so we could shop/pack. Today was neighbors and friends asking if they can mow my lawn and care for my pets. Today was laying in Joci's bed until she fell asleep because I knew how much I would miss her. Today was tuxedo truffle cake to celebrate. Today was happy tears and grateful prayers and overflowing hearts.
