10 weeks...

70 days!  

Sometimes I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone by!  (And other times, I feel like it has been forever and 10 more weeks is an eternity!)  :o)  In just 10 weeks (give or take a few!) I will get to meet my son for the first time, outside my body.  I will get to hold  him... to look at his face, into his eyes...  and feel the protective mother-love pour out of me, consuming all that I am.  I get to meet my son!

Just knowing that that time is coming makes my heart jump.  I have never been more ready, and at the same time less ready, for anything in my life.  Being a mom (his mom) is what I was created for, and have spent my life preparing for... and is also something so foreign to me that I can hardly dream what my heart will feel, and what my life will become, when he is born.  I already love him so much it hurts, but am also well-aware that I have barely experienced the tip of the iceberg of this all-consuming mother-love!

So, my sweet little baby _____ ...  I love you.   I can't wait to meet you.  And the count-down has officially begun!  

What a ride!

oh, what a sweet post... isn't it amazing how long and short pregnancy seems? although the next several weeks may seem like an eternity, you'll look back on this time and feel like it went pretty quickly. because, as you're well aware, 10 weeks from now, the world will be a very different place to you. and about 9 months from now, baby boy thomas just may be sitting on your lap while you blog-comment one-handed, begging for more sips of your water. :)

it is SUCH a ride!
