I can remember the moment like it was yesterday. The day I became a Mom. The pregnancy was long, yet the delivery was fast. And soon I was holding our first-born in my arms, staring at the most adorable creation I had ever seen. I can not believe that was (gulp) 5 years ago. Where has the time gone? Since then, we’ve had another baby boy and he’s already two! Yet, like a light switch, I can vividly remember the moment I held both boys for the first time. It’s amazing how the mind works.
Becoming a parent is one of the most rewarding, and challenging jobs you will ever undertake. It’s truly a blessing and honor. There is no comparison to the amount of love that fills your heart.
Just for the record, I am not pregnant. No news to share here! However, I have MANY friends who have recently shared their good news with me and I couldn’t be more excited for them!
Other than my most memorable moment of welcoming our baby boys into the world, I also enjoyed a few other things while pregnant. One of those being shopping! It is so much fun to begin shopping for a nursery theme and buying those first baby items. It almost solidifies that this is happening, I’m becoming a Mom!
Another thing I enjoyed shopping for was maternity clothes. Typically I would not be excited about gaining weight and my buttons popping off, but at this moment I was ALL about it! I avoided being pregnant with both kids during the Summer heat. Many moms, including my own, gave me that advice and I heeded it. I even have a favorite pair of khaki maternity pants that I incorporate in my wardrobe today because they are so comfortable.
What were some of your favorite pregnancy memories? Do you plan to expand your family?
