I want to take a moment and thank everyone for their continued support as I get back into blogging and transition into this new season of motherhood! All of your sweet messages and words of advice seriously encourage me so much! So thank you for that! Can't believe I am over 23 weeks along and time is not slowing down!
Well the secret is out! We are having a baby BOY! Ahh! I am going to be a boy mom! I was sure I was having a girl, but nonetheless, feeling blessed as ever with a healthy baby on the way.
This has been one of the best seasons of my life so far. It has been difficult, to say the least, with being extremely sick for 3 straight months ( I had Hyperemesis Graviderum... can you relate??), dealing with new insecurities of body changes and unknowns-- but none the less the best. Growing a life is such a miracle and I am amazed how God has made each woman's body to just "do it's thing" when it comes to making a HUMAN LIFE! lol still so weird to think about. I have loved seeing how this season has brought my husband and I together more intimately... knowing we are making something together. It's such a precious time in our life together. I get excited thinking about him as a dad- now to a baby boy- and how much it will change us both.
We had our ultrasound last Friday and spending that hour of time being able to see the baby and how he moves and grooves and how he is 100% healthy was one of the most special times on this journey. AND being able to feel the baby in my belly has been just a crazy amazing thing to experience. For other mamas, what was your favorite part of pregnancy?
As I adjust my mind to being a mother of a boy, I can't help but to think about so many different things.. like What will his personality be like? How will the world treat him differently knowing he will be middle eastern, white and black? How do I teach a boy to be a boy being a girly girl? Will he be kind, smart, generous? Will he love sports? What sports do we put him in? How do I teach him about his purpose from God and not the purpose that the world wants him have?
My mind is constantly thinking about random things- sometimes big things, sometimes irrelevant things... but none the less I am always thinking, asking and praying for this baby. It's crazy how my heart changes to think about this human 99% of the time in my day... what did I think about before? LOL
I ask you, friends, to keep us in your prayers and we transition into welcoming the baby and parenthood. I will be sharing more about the miracle of this baby in later blogs... one from my point of view and the other from my husbands. :)
