One Of Those Moments.

I’m having one of those moments where I can’t believe I get to be a mom.

Sometimes I just think about it and am overwhelmed at the idea that I am having a baby- a real baby. With the love of my life.

I wonder what she’ll look like, how she’ll act, what her cry will sound like. What will her first words be? What color are her eyes? Her hair?

Will she be a chunky baby like Tom and I were? Or a petite baby like her Aunt Kristen and cousin Ella?

And I just dream about holding her in my arms. Feeling her skin. Breathing in her baby smell and kissing that little head.

This is really happening.

I get to be a mom.

I can’t believe it. And yet, I know it’s not that far away.

The closer it gets, the more moments like this I have. On any given night, I just look over at Tom and say, “We get to have a baby!”

Sometimes it seems so surreal. And other times, it’s so real, I wish I could just skip ahead to January and meet her.

A baby. My baby. And Tom’s baby.

  1. Those moments never go away, your thoughts just change a little. Multiple times a week I think, “Oh my goodness! I have two kids! And my oldest one is 3! Didn’t I just have her yesterday? And my baby boy is 18 months old! Ack! I’m really not prepared for this! Can they just stop growing?”
