8 Jul


As impatient as we are for our new little addition to get here we’re trying to remember that our time as a twosome is almost over. I’m going to miss the simple nights of us just sitting on the couch in complete boredom! I’ve been told that you’ll miss being bored when a baby comes so I’m trying to soak it all in! Scott is my very best friend and part of me is sad that we won’t have the alone time that we’ve had over the past 8-9 years, but now we’ll be sharing the time with a little guy who is 50% Scott and 50% me! I couldn’t think of a better person to be stealing time from us.

It will be quite awhile before we will be able to pack up the car for a day at the beach or a night out on the town so we’re trying to squeeze in as many of the activities we love while we still can. It’s crazy to think that we won’t have the same freedoms we have now but it’s so exciting thinking of staying at home as a family and just pouring out our love onto “Smalls.” Even changing diapers together sounds rather romantic to me. (Haha)  Boy, times have changed.

I pray that we will always find the romance in the simple things of our new life and find joy even in the times of frustration. I can only see my love growing deeper for my husband as we now take on the role as parents! It’s incredibly intimidating but there’s no one else I would choose to walk this journey with. I can’t wait for the first moment I see my tiny son placed into Scott’s arms. Just the visual image in my head gives me the most intense butterflies. Scott will be such a natural father and will give this boy the most wonderful childhood!

I’m so lucky to have such an incredible life partner! God truly knew what He was doing when He brought us together at the tender age of 16. I stand in awe sometimes at just how well God thought out my life and how He knew what I needed so much better than I ever did! I am blessed. I could say it over and over and still not come close to expressing how extremely blessed I am! I hope I never forget.

So in these last few weeks (could be days) I will be content to spend every moment I can with the man I said “I do” to 3 years ago and patiently await the biggest gift we’ve ever been given: our son!
