A letter to him...

Dear Sweet Boy,

I woke up with one of the greatest and sweetest blessings, the morning I discovered you were already inside of me. I will never forget that feeling. I will never forget the look on your daddy's face, as I walked out of the bedroom and told him. He was overjoyed! I couldn't believe that it was actually happening. I had imagined and thought about us having a baby and always got excited. Now? It was here! God had already began to create you inside of me! I was amazed, yet, scared that I would be a good mommy to you or not. Could I love you in the way that you deserved to be loved? Could I guide you and teach you in a way that would help you to grow and mature? Oh, how I pray that I can.

I loved you at the mere thought of you but, fell head over heals in love with you, in the moment I first saw you. Shaped like a little bean on the ultrasound screen, there you were. I could already imagine your little face and hands in my mind, and I loved them. I kept looking in awe at you. Then I saw your heart beating! There it was, beating so fast! Life was in you. You in me. Amazing.

One of my favorite things so far is how close we are. One day, I will share you with many. But for now, you are mine. I love this. I get to feel you. Daddy does too. :) But, I know when you're awake. Which is usually when I am sleeping! Or at least trying to sleep. I think I have even felt you have the hiccups a couple of times! You're always with me. I love it! Before you were with me, you were with God. You still are. He is forming your in most detail. He knows you so much better than me. He always will. He has already placed so many great things in you. The most important, His love for you. One day soon you will even feel it! This is one of the most special things about you. I can't wait for that day! What a great, sweet day that will be. I already feel as though God has some great things he wants you to do for Him! When I pray for you, I see glimpses sometimes of the way God might use you and it excites me so!

In just a few short months, I get to see your sweet face! I get to hold your tiny hands, kiss your sweet cheeks and smell your sweet baby smell. I am so looking forward to that moment when you look at me for your first time! We get to see each other, finally! But, don't be in too much of a hurry! You still have some growing to do mister! ;)

You are our first baby. You are special. Please always know that from the moment we knew about you and from the moment that we get to meet you, you have been loved. You are loved. You were wanted. You put a new happiness within your mommy and daddy, that we didn't know existed. Our sweet boy, we love you.

Your Momma

Time flies...

when you're having a baby! Seriously, time has just gone by so fast with the holidays and such. I have sat down to update many times, left completely blank. Not sure where to start. Then I would get side tracked, see someone elses post and loose myself in their world. Sad, but true!

So here is what has been happening in our house hold as of lately...

We celebrated Christmas of course! We got the best Christmas present this year and found out, our little blessing is a BOY!! I had a feeling it was. The hubs was so excited! Everything looked great and I must say he is the cutest little boy already if you ask me!

The little guy has been moving and kicking up a storm! He is usually really active during or while I am eating or snacking on anything. My favorite is at night. Every night I lie in bed and I can feel him repositioning himself, and see him go crazy! The hubby can see my tummy jump and jive too, which is sweet. He however, is still stunned every time he sees it, ha! He has gotten better though and realizes it's his son and not an alien.

We have been busy getting things done around our house lately. I LOVE updating things around the house. Painting. Decorating. Getting new light fixtures. You name, I love it! We recently redid our guest bath, to make it a tad more kid friendly and definitely more bright and airy! The hubs put up Wainscoting, which looks soo good! I textured and repainted the walls. We put in a new fixtures too! It might be my favorite room in the house now, ha! As soon as I get some more minor details done, I will get some pictures up. :)

We also have been working on the little guys room. I am in love with his room, and we haven't even done that much to it yet. It is seriously the most peaceful room in our house! We got his furniture in before Christmas. His crib and dresser/changing table. I got the.best.deal.ever. at Lowes a couple of weeks ago. They had rugs on sale and I got a big area rug in chocolate brown for 10 bucks!! I knew I wanted an area rug for his room and was so excited when I stumbled upon this one!

We also bought a book shelf for his room at Ikea. We went ahead and purchased his bedding because it was killing me. It's virtuously impossible to decorate for me without one of the most important pieces. So, we got it and I love it! His room is going to be preppy with a modern twist. I am not really into themes, like animals so we found something we both agreed on. I am even trying my hand at making some art for his walls. We shall see how it turns out! His room looks so boyish already and I love it! Pictures will follow once it is complete. :)

I am entering in my 25th week tomorrow! We had an appointment today and my doc, who I love, said to come back in two weeks for my glucose test and we will start seeing her every two weeks from now on. Say what?! Already!

I also...will be turning 27 this month! I seriously feel like I should still be in my early twenties. Can't believe I am on the downward slope now to thirty. Well, technically I already have been. Anywho...yeah. 27. Feels strange.Weird. But, I am ok with it. :)

So that is what has been happening around these parts. Just being thankful for this sweet season of life. Taking it all in. Remembering and giving praise to the one who is responsible for all of these blessings. :)
