As we enter a month of Thanksgiving I can’t help but reflect on this past year and how blessed I am. I have so much to be thankful for and will forever be grateful. What an amazing, loving God we have! Although this year has taken us hundreds of miles away from all of our family and friends, it’s been an amazing experience walking in faith.
After a couple of years of talking
It brings us great joy to know in the beginning of April we will be welcoming a precious baby GIRL!! Our hearts are full and we are blessed!! This pregnancy hasn’t been the easiest by far, but to have a healthy baby will all be worth it. To be completely honest, in the beginning I was in denial, scared and dismissed all the pregnancy symptoms. It’s like I didn’t realize what was going on and, I was falling apart inside on all the what if’s with having another baby. The fear of repeating all of what we experienced with Dawson’s first year and a half of his life haunted me day and night. I’m praying so hard for a healthy baby and holding onto faith!
This will be Nick’s and my last pregnancy. If God ever puts it on our hearts in the future to adopt, we will gladly run towards the opportunity. Our hearts melt for precious toddlers and older children who are in need of a family and to feel loved.
Now to the big brother…. He’s a little crushed on the thought of having a sister. Dawson has wanted a brother (4 year old brother to be exact) for a really long time, so it was a shock to him when the ultrasound tech said it was a girl. Dawson knew from the beginning that God could give us a baby boy or girl, but he was fully convinced it was a boy. He’s coming around to the thought of having a sister and is super excited to know she will
(hopefully) not be fighting to play with his cars, tractors and trucks! 🙂 Dawson has the biggest heart of any little boy I know, we are positive he will be an amazing big brother.
On another note…To my fabulous Friends and family who have requested preggo pics….It’s NOT happening…ever!! It would be amazing to look like all of you beautiful sweet girls when you were pregnant. Seriously you all were stunning when pregnant! For some reason I didn’t inherit those awesome genes. Boo!! lol! I have the swelling up…just go ahead confuse me with a cow genes! The swelling started 3 weeks ago so I can only imagine what I will look like in April. A movie that makes me giggle about the whole pregnancy and appearance concept is ” What to expect when you’re expecting”. Count me as the chic who preaches what pregnancy does to your body and how it stinks! In all reality I know everyone’s body is so different and not to think twice about it. I realize looking like a cow will be worth it. I am truly counting my blessing. (and of course the weeks left to delivery lol!!)
