I apologize (once again) for my blogging hiatus! We've had a wonderful last few months, with the most wonderful part being WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A BABY.
(Sorry for the uterus shots, but that's really all I have to work with right now ;))
I am SO excited for the opportunity to become a mama, and for A to be a daddy to this child. Not one day goes by that I don't feel the reality of that responsibility. Also, not one day goes by that I don't feel extremely humbled and grateful that we have been entrusted with it.
I've been beyond fortunate to have a healthy pregnancy. Also, I have an incredible doctor who I fully trust with these new mama worries. The first trimester was a little rough, but I'm so glad for a job with great people where my mind was taken off the all-day blah feeling. Lastly, BIG shoutout to A, who lovingly made me a PB&J every day and let me nap on the couch until bedtime without interruption. BLESS.
The past few months have been lots of fun - having my energy back, watching my belly grow, and celebrating with friends and family. I still can't believe it's real some days.
It seems over the last few years, we have spent a lot of time in prayer for sweet friends and family who have had scary, even downright heartbreaking, pregnancy journeys. A friend's mom sent me this quote early on, and I try to read it every day:
"If I had my life to live over, instead of wishing away months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was my only change in life to assist God in a miracle"
Thank you, Lord for this miracle. We can't wait for our sweet girl to arrive later this fall!
