As today marks my 24th week of pregnancy, I can’t believe how quickly it has gone by, but also how far away our little one’s due date seems. It doesn’t seem like that long ago when Tyler + I found out that we would be having a baby… I cried in hysterics, mainly because I was in shock. It seems that no matter whether you are planning pregnancy or not, it still comes as a blow how much is about to change.
I recall when I was in high school + how I always thought, “I’ll never be like my parents. I will be different.” However, looking back, I am grateful for how my father raised me. He gave me a good work ethic + although we didn’t have too many rules in our house, I didn’t push my luck. It must have been hard for my dad raising 3 girls + I knew that the less I did to stress him out, the more freedom I’d be able to keep. I also recall Tyler’s mom doing everything she could to provide for her 3 children the best she could; often holding multiple jobs, putting dinner on the table + cleaning up after them even when she was dead tired.
I’m grateful that Husby + I were raised with similar ideals that will make it easier for us to agree on how to raise our little one. Not to mention we were friends long before marriage was even an idea in either of our heads. I feel like that bond gives us a lot more respect + admiration for each other. Can you tell I like him… just a little bit?
We can’t wait to see our little girl’s sweet face! In fact, I can’t even wait to see my sweet husband’s face… he is away for work currently + all 4 of us girls are missing him badly!
