Why I'm Excited to be a Mom...

First, I'll get to experience the feeling all moms talk about but can never fully explain...actually holding your very own child that you carried for 9 months...getting to finally see his little hands and feet for the first time, hear his coo's and look into his eyes...

Getting to know that little one, with all the different cries, expressions and preferences better than anyone else...

Dreaming of what my son will grow up to be, his interests, talents and passions...

Providing for, caring for, loving, admiring and praying for him every moment of every day as he grows and grows...

Watching Tony become a daddy!!!

My registry is complete and the nursery is underway. Tony is SO excited to unleash his creativity and paint Noah's room, it is going to look phenomenal! Today was probably the most active Noah has been so far, growth spurt or energy increase, I'm not sure, but it is still the most amazing thing! I love it!! We are a little less than two weeks away from my third trimester and God has just continued to bless Noah's growth and my health beyond belief. We are so grateful to be approaching the next milestone in my pregnancy.

My last Dr.'s appt had all good things to report...Noah has a strong heartbeat, everything measures right on, we won't talk about the scale, thyroid levels are perfect and I go for my glucose test the first week of September!

And the most amazing news of all...my belly button remains an "inny", not by much, though. I so thought I was joining the "outty" club like a month ago...he's a growing boy!!!
