This is the end of before

This is it. The end. The end of the ability to up and go whenever we want. The end of days planned around everything we want to do. The end of sleeping in on weekends. The end of eating meals uninterrupted. This is the end of before.

But it’s the beginning. The beginning of a family of 3. The beginning of seeing the cute little face that we’ve been waiting so long to see. The beginning of watching life experienced for the first time. The beginning of a great love. The beginning of Wally V’s life.

We’re ready. We’ve been getting ready for our entire lives. Everything we’ve done to this day has taught us everything we’ll know when we start this amazing journey. Wally V, bring it on!

I’d like to thank everyone for reading the blog during this whole pregnancy. It has been incredible to read your comments and feel the support coming through. Wally and I will be continuing a blog for this new beginning at It isn’t set up as a blog yet, but sometime within the next few weeks we’ll be launching to share stories about all the things Small Wal has to teach us.

And as a grand finale, we have a video to share of my growing belly. It grows, then shrinks, then pops back out again. Wally put it together with pictures he took every week for the past 40!

The end!

    Dear Wally and Mollie,
    Grandpa and I have so enjoyed this journey with you and thank you for sharing. Yes, your lives will change but only for the better. When you hold that precious little boy you will wonder how you could ever have imagined you were happy before. I so remember that feeling–3 times. Each birth adds a dimension to your lives that fills you with wonder.

    We have loved your sharing such a personal experience and look forward to many more as Wally V arrives and makes you a family!
    Much love,
    Grandpa and Mamma May

    Wal & Mol,
    We are made in God’s image and part of that image is the love He has for his children and you are about to experience that love for your little guy. Mama May is so right. You lives will be new and improved even with dirty diapers and screaming and being up half the night. And you will find out there are a lot of good music videos on during the Wee hours.
    Hey Mol your tummy video looks like my stomach when we order Aurelio’s pizza.
    Love PoopPoop

    Wally five! Wally five! We’re so excited to meet him!

    Mollie, go in there tomorrow and be the champiest champ of all champs. Wally, be the awesome supportive husband you always are. Folks all over the city are praying for the three of you, cheering you on, and keeping you in mind during this adventure.

    October 28 sounds like a great day to be born. 😀

    Ooodles of love from the South Side,
    -Mary and Dan
