There are big moments in life as we all know. Moments that stay in our hearts forever whether good our bad, they stay with us.
Growing up you begin to think about your future. Who you might become. Who you’ll marry. The kind of career you might establish.
It’s amazing because nothing is ever what it seems. Even if you dream your whole life of becoming a firefighter once you get there it may not be exactly as you imagined.
I wouldn’t say I’ve had many big accomplishments in my life. Nothing to write home about, but I do think I’ve made a good life for myself.
When David and I bought our first home and pointed our bedroom it was such a pivotal moment. It was life, however simple, it was beautiful.
I have married a good man, we bought a house, we pay our bills , and we survive in our own happy little world.
Today was another huge moment for me. We began to set up the baby’s room by building the crib! I couldn’t stop smiling. I just can’t believe this is happening. I’m currently living a long awaited dream of mine.
There is not a second of this pregnancy that I am taking for granted knowing how hard we worked to get here and how some people are still holding out for hope. While others can’t have children. Life is messy and too often things don’t turn around for better. So when you have happiness hold on to it and remember that feeling when life gets too hard.
I am so thankful for the baby gifts we have already received in the mail. My boss is a wonderful woman who blessed David and I with the 4 in 1 crib we wanted, a mattress, and crib sheets. My sisters in law fixed a ripped elephant stuffed animal and now it finally has a home. My mom bought us a diaper bag and other fun goodies. And those are just naming a few. I am only in month five and I already feel overwhelmed by the love and support we are getting. Not that I am complaining! I love how loved we are.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, our hearts, all three of us. We feel incredibly blessed.
Here is a link to our baby registry. Because we live so far away we figured it would be best to do the registry through Amazon that way items can be sent to directly to us. Also, note the Amazon prices change daily based on demand. So if something seems oddly priced check back in a couple days and more then likely the price will have changed. Lastly, a certain percentage of our registry’s profits are going to go to the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Keep in mind that I’ve never been a mom before so I will gladly accept all the advice I can get. In other words if there is something that you think I missed please let me know!
Oh, the last photo is the beginning of my very tiny baby bump!
