Mourning the Loss of ‘Just the Two of Us’

I am thrilled to have added a member to our family.  Eli is such a blessing and having children is something that I feel like I was put on this earth to do.  Having said that, I am going to miss the days of ‘Just the two of us.’  I have to say, this emotion took me by surprise.  I thought I was more than ready for this transition.  My husband and I were married for almost 6 years when Eli came along.  We had a good run, just the two of us.  We traveled, worked many different jobs, graduated from college, and moved half way across the country as a team of two.  In those 6 years we learned a lot about communication, we learned how to support each other, and how to get through some tougher times together. (not that we have it ALL figured out.) In the short time that we have been home, I see our team of two working together in a whole new way.  Taking care of our little bundle has definitely been a new expansion of our partnership.  When I watch my husband taking care of Eli, I realize that I made a great choice, and yes it is cliche…but I love him even more.  So, while part of me is sad to say goodbye to the days of just hubby and I, the rest of me is excited to continue as a team of 3……and maybe 4 or 5…?

How about you? Were there any unexpected emotions that popped up when you brought your bundle home?  Anyone a little sad to be done with the ‘couple’ stage, like me?
