Sometimes I can’t believe how fast this pregnancy has gone by! (And other times, I feel like it has been forever and 10 more weeks is an eternity!) :o) In just 10 weeks (give or take a few!) I will get to meet my son for the first time, outside my body. I will get to hold him… to look at his face, into his eyes… and feel the protective mother-love pour out of me, consuming all that I am. I get to meet my son!
Just knowing that that time is coming makes my heart jump. I have never been more ready, and at the same time less ready, for anything in my life. Being a mom (his mom) is what I was created for, and have spent my life preparing for… and is also something so foreign to me that I can hardly dream what my heart will feel, and what my life will become, when he is born. I already love him so much it hurts, but am also well-aware that I have barely experienced the tip of the iceberg of this all-consuming mother-love!
So, my sweet little baby _____ … I love you. I can’t wait to meet you. And the count-down has officially begun!
What a ride!
