I suppose it’s time for a very personal post. As I write this, I am 21 weeks along in my first pregnancy. WOW!
Real life just got so real. In November, we found out we are having a baby, and we now know that baby J is a baby BOY! Somehow, even more than 5 months in, and 2 weeks into having an actual bump… it still just somehow doesn’t seem like real life. I guess some things are just too much for a person’s brain to handle. I am going to be a Mom! I am going to have a son. My husband is now going to be a Father. I suppose that being pregnant and birthing a child, and forever being someone’s Mama is just something that truly changes everything in a way that nothing else has before.
I have found myself wondering about who this person will be so many times. What will he look like? Who will he become? What will he love, be interested in, be good at, be passionate about? What will his personality be like and who will he one day fall in love with? I pray for health, for blessings, for a child who I can raise to know and love his Savior. I pray for my husband and I to be good parents, by loving each other well, by following the Lord, and by being a team. I don’t think I’ve ever been so overwhelmed with emotions in my entire life.
My dear friend Julie of Julie Wilhite Photography came to our home to take a few images of Nick and I together to announce that we are expecting our baby boy in July, and I just love the images she captured of us. Here are a quick few to share our joy.
One thing you might be wondering is… what does this change for you? Nothing! Other than a little time off once baby arrives, business will go on as usual. I may just have an adorable little studio assistant now.
