I’ve had quite a few of these moments:
- Having a little sister
- Getting my drivers license and my first car (the freedom!
- When I gained my confidence!
- Signing up for an apartment for B2020
- My first dog, Bella
- Meeting Gerard
- Getting engaged to Gerard
- Marrying Gerard
….and now? Having our first child! A proof of love, something we’ve made together, a gift from God.
There’s only two weeks left til due date! Even though I cherish every little movement my baby makes, even though it’s magical in it’s own sweet way, I can’t help but thinking that walking around without feeling someone pushing on both my bladder, diafragma and stomach at the same time will be pretty magical too.
Oh, and you think getting out of bed in the morning is tough? Try it with a fullgrown baby inside of you! But trust me, it’s so worth it!
So, are we ready..? For a little newborn, fragile little treasure? I sure hope so. But honestly, how do you know? It will be a funny experience, seeing how we’ll be swept of our feet, confused, thrilled, excited and scared to death, all at once! I can’t wait to finally meet her, see what she looks like, see her open her eyes for the first time, hear her voice, hold her tiny hand, smell her scent, feel her skin. I wonder if she is healthy, who she looks like, if she has black hair like I did.
The closest I’ve been to something remotely similar is the day I brought home Bella, the most adorable little puppy in the world. She was so tiny, so gorgeous, and I couldn’t stop staring at her. She was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen, and I loved her from the second she was mine. In the car on my way home I felt pure happiness and joy, and a little bit frightened, considering that I suddenly were responsible for a little creature’s life.
Will having a baby be something like that? Just x1000? I can’t wait to figure it out!
