Year after year it is the same thing time flies and we are left wondering where it all went.
2016 had its highs and its lows, we found out we were pregnant, we lost beloved dogs, and we moved into our brand new house. To say I had an emotional rollercoaster of a year would definitely be an understatement, being pregnant and having a lot of things happen all in one year wasn't easy. I was a hormonal wreck!
While everyone is posting their 9 greatest photos of 2016, there is only one that really really means a lot to me. It is the photo that documents the day that we found out we were pregnant.
After all of the struggles, we went through with infertility, to say that I will have an amazingly gorgeous healthy baby boy in my arms in a few short weeks makes me so happy [and cry a lot]. I wonder what he is going to look like [even though the 3D says his daddy], who he is going to act like and what the hell we are going to do with a baby.
I am scared, excited, nervous, and so ready it is unreal. I can't believe we are going to finally be parents, E will finally be a daddy, I will be someone's mommy. It is just so. . .unreal.
I can't wait for the moment where his tiny little fingers wrap around mine, I snap those photos of him sleeping on daddy's chest, he sleeps through the night, and bonds with our dogs. I can't wait to see how excited and emotional this is going to be for E's family and my own. I am definitely going to cry so much I'll need to remember to forget the mascara or make up in general.
It has been hard all of these months to write about Jaxon and my maternity journey because I just couldn't find the words, I couldn't come up with the right things to write so that you could feel how much I love someone I haven't even met yet. I also wanted to just experience it all plus pregnancy brain is so, so real.
So while I spend the rest of 2016 on my couch, eating things I definitely shouldn't be eating and probably falling asleep before the clock hits midnight. I am thankful for another year, a new life, and a new home and more time with family and friends.
And I pray for the same for you.
