Ready to be a Mom

I have two more days and a wake up before I become a mom for the second time. And I can't wait for that for two reasons

1. I can't wait to meet my little man, hold him in my arms and see who he looks like. I will never forget Gianna being placed in my arms and the enormous rush of emotion and love that overcame me the moment I saw her. Those two days spent in the hospital with her and the hubby we truly amazing. It was as if we were in our own little bubble and nothing else mattered but the three of us. I know that meeting little man will be the same sort of experience.

2. But I'm really excited to have a piece of me back. To go back to being Gianna's mom again. To not being sick or exhausted or big and pregnant and unable to do the things I want to do with my daughter. I'm looking forward to running after her when she plays outside, to being able to play outside without swelling up and getting hot flash after hot flash in this 90 degree weather and most importantly to just have the energy to get on the floor and play with my daughter

I am also eager to introduce her to her baby brother. To start my journey as a mom of two under two and setting out to be the best mom I can be.

I know it's not going to be easy. Raising two kids under two without the hubs around will be no easy task but after seeing how fast Gianna's first year flew by I don't want to miss out on anything with my two little loves and I'm excited to get started

  1. Woot Woot! SO CLOSE! YAY! Can't wait to see your little man.

  2. How exciting! Praying that everything goes smoothly for you and your little family as you welcome your new baby boy into this world. Being a momma to a boy is the absolute best, but then again I've never been a mom to a girl. Can't wait to "see" your new baby

  3. The 19th is a GREAT day to have a baby {it's my bithday too!} I'll be thinking of you!
