As I hold you today, I remember the moments when you were born. You are my first born, the one who first made me a mom.
In a few short days your baby brother will be born, love to new heights will be reached as our family expands. I cannot wait to document this next chapter in our lives because I know without a doubt you will be the best big brother!
I am officially 37 weeks along with our little bundle of joy and loving it! We recently had maternity photos taken and I am so in love with ALL of them! Check them out below! 🤍
It’s been a strange pregnancy I’m not going to lie. It’s been strange not being able to celebrate this with friends and family or have a baby shower. I feel like this pregnancy zoomed on by and I don’t know how it did being quarantined!
So with all that being said, it was so fun to glam up, have some pretty photos taken of my family and of myself! I absolutely love the way they turned out and will forever cherish these!!
Someone made a turtle friend! We have a pond behind our home and this little guy got lost on our pool deck. We rescued and returned him back to his pond! It was quite the little mission we went on but Mason loved the whole experience!
How I love the little moments and the joy it brought to him even if he wanted to keep him! I told my son that the baby turtle had to go back home to his turtle family back in the pond! 🐢🤷♀️
Have your children ever found “pets” and kept them?
We’re not totally there yet given my sons age! Maybe one day we will start with a little fish or something then graduate to a dog he can pick out!
When I look into your eyes, I want you to know you will always be loved no matter what is happening in the world.
I want you to never feel replaced or saddened as your baby brother arrives in a few short weeks.
I want you to know I will always love you far beyond measure.
Today, I am feeling all the emotions hit me as I look at my first born, the little boy who made me a mom. It’s bittersweet to know that the years will rush on by, and one day I will be watching my baby boy grow up to be a man.
“Men are what their mothers made them.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
My hope is that I raised a leader, a kind, caring, respectable gentleman making a positive contribution, and hopefully going far beyond me in the scope of his life.
Recently, I have had a few people ask me, “so are you going to try for a girl next”… this question makes me uncomfortable but I know it comes from a good place. Honestly what people don’t know and understand is that I did have gender disappointment at the beginning. Over time I learned to fall completely in love with this little guy. Loved hearing hearing his little heartbeat for the first time, feeling the dancing he does, the hiccups he has at times and how he respond to my voice by giving me little kicks is a beautiful and indescribable bond I am forever fortunate to have.
See what I have learned is this, 𝙂𝙤𝙙 𝙩𝙧𝙪𝙡𝙮 𝙜𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙚𝙭𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙡𝙮 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙞𝙣 𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙡𝙚.
I feel beyond blessed and excited to be having another boy who is going to best friends with his older brother, Mason and loved beyond measure! Only 7 weeks to go until we meet our baby boy! 🤍
