First Look



We had our first glimpse at baby today and I can't quite put in to words what that meant or felt like for me but I'll try.

It felt like my heart cracked open a little bit wider, like my entire world had been flipped upside down. Like I would never be unhappy again. I mourned the loss of my non-mommy days in that moment while looking forward to the first time I get to hold that little life in my arms. I felt like laughing and crying and jumping up and down but instead squeezed Joe's hand and smiled. Seeing our summer child in there, kicking and punching the air made everything so much more real for me.

All that, from just a glimpse.


P.S. For those of you going "whhhhaaaaaaaaa?" right now, please see my last post of 2013 where I spill the beans sneakily. ;)

  7. Beautiful! Seeing the sonogram pictures has always been my favorite part of doc visits, especially with the second one because even though I feel her kicking in there, it still feels all too surreal. Enjoy it! And here's to an uneventful pregnancy mama! /Hugs!!

  11. I was so excited for you when I saw this pic :) !! It took me right back back to when I first saw mine - I have two daughters who are now 17 and 12 - and I can't believe how the time has flown. I send you love and hugs and sympathy for the all day morning sickness - I had this with both of mine so I now how it sucks big time - but am glad to hear it's starting to get better. Here's to the spring months ahead and hoping you bloom and blossom as your baby grows...........:)
