Soaking It All In...

next time I'll wear makeup...

After a long day at work or anywhere else all I want to do is bond with my husband and child. In fact, every time I feel my little boy kick, punch or squirm inside of me I get this overwhelming urge to tell my boss "see ya!" so I can go home, lay down and soak in the wonderful, magical feeling of the movements of my little love. I don't do that but it would be kind of nice to be able to take it in as much as I can. I want to take in everything about this pregnancy. I don't want to realize four months from now that it's all over and wonder where the time went.

I waited for this time in my life for so long. When I was a little girl I dreamed of the day that I would have a family of my own, when I was a teenager I would babysit every chance I got, when I met the person who would one day become my husband we talked about our dreams for a family. We were 17, on our first "date" and we were talking babies. So I'm making myself a promise. I am going to slow down and soak it all in. When I'm tired, I'm going to sleep. When I want to cry, I'm going to cry. When I want to do nothing at the end of the day except lay with my lullabelly and a baby book, that's exactly what I'm going to do. I'm going to do it because this is my time to connect with my child before I have to share him with the world and I promise to myself that I'm gonna enjoy it while it lasts.

Side note: my husband came home with the lullabelly a few weeks ago as a surprise and I love it...

  1. Good for you! Enjoy it while you can. And a tip: Get a good phone that take video. There will come a time when you can see your little guy move. He will punch or kick and you will be able to see it from the outside. Get that on video, it's really neat!

  2. YES! We've been seeing him move for about 2 weeks now. It's the coolest thing!
