Final Countdown — 38 Week Bumpdate
38 WEEKS PREGNANT
Spring is here in the desert, and our little ones arrival could be any day now. This pregnancy has been unlike anything I could have ever imagined, in all of its grace and imperfections, unexpected experiences, and deep belly laughs, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. The other day B said something I'll cherish forever, he said, "It's pretty crazy isn't? My entire life, your entire life, everything we have gone through and everything we have become has been for the creation of our family." It is in times like those I count my lucky stars that I married such a great man.
I could sit here and write down half a million things that made me laugh this week and let's be honest I also had my fair share of crying, but we'll just blame that on hormones. At the end of the day I just want to keep it simple, I don't care to overthink it, to overshare this special time in our lives. I sat at my kitchen counter this morning, watching the early morning sun filter in and wrote my last thoughts on this pregnancy in my journal. All I can say is that motherhood is already so remarkable to me, and B never fails to amaze me with his goodness; there is an immeasurable amount of peace that comes from knowing that I'll be raising children alongside such an magnificent man. My thankful heart is overflowing with love and excitement, and now the rest is just knowing that our little babe will be here when they're ready to be, this adventure is just beginning.
