Retroactive Blog // 6-11 weeks


I thought i’d do a little retroactive blogging.

Some things I wrote down at different stages… 

you are six weeks today!  sounds silly to say.  Just a month and a half.  If you haven’t heard me hundreds of times already, i love you.
i pray for you in the shower, at my desk, in the car, on the way to the mailbox.  we pray for you before bed with our hands on you.  i pray you keep growing safely.  stay put, ok?
i pray you have a gentle, compassionate, sweet, kind, strong, non-judgemental spirit.  for big and little things.  

you are six weeks and 3 days.  
we slept in until 7:30 today!  you like your sleep.  you’re my kinda girl/guy already.
i can never express how grateful i am to have you swimming inside here.  
God does many miraculous things but i think this is top of the list.  

you are 7 weeks and 5 days today.
we went to palm beach this weekend.  i ate so many delicious meals, laughed very hard with friends.  speaking of friends… i pray you have good ones.  that’s one of my biggest prayers.  ones who you encourage, love unconditionally, ones who will laugh, cry, pray and be honest with you.  
i pray you choose wisely, and that you always pick ones that hold you to higher standards.  
and if you ‘re very lucky, like your dad and i, you’ll get to marry your very best friend.

you are 7 weeks and 6 days today.
you are changing my worldview. in the best way.  and i am so grateful to you already.

You’re 8 weeks.
I heard your heartbeat today.  your mother turned into a blubbering idiot.  

You’re 9 weeks.
You’ve been tough on me this week.  I have barfed pretty much everywhere.  I will say it all the time though – it is worth it.  which is something i never thought i’d be able to say.  i would do anything for you, already.

You are 10 weeks.
Let’s talk about your father.  He’s hung in there!  He has been so good to me.  I have felt like crying with no reason or rhyme to it.  He is such an amazing husband, and I know he’ll make an incredible father.  little baby, you got the best.  if you’re a girl, i hope you find someone like your dad and never let go. 

You’re 11 weeks and 4 days today.  
hi baby.  you are already the best thing that ever happened to me.

    thank you for sharing your sacred thoughts between you and your babe. It is so wonderful to get a peek into your heart for this child and know that it is so much bigger, grander, more beautiful than we can even imagine.

    My co-worker was friends with you in college. She told me about your blog, so I've been secretly stalking for a while now πŸ™‚ I wanted to leave an encouraging note to say that without knowing you, I can tell based on this post that you will be an incredibly loving and self-sacrificing mom. Your child is blessed beyond measure to be born into a family such as yours. The world needs more parents like you, and I thank God for blessing you with this child.

    I just want to share a couple of thoughts from a total stranger that's been stalking your blog (creepy, I know). First of all congratulations, your thoughts for baby are so beautiful that I'm sitting here at my computer crying, for the second time. You're going to be an amazing mom. Secondly, the love you have for your husband is so inspiring.

    Two months ago I read your "what I learned in my 20s" blog & I stopped dead in my tracks. When I read the "If you have a man of integrity, never let go" line my thoughts immediately went to my childhood friend who has followed me all over North Carolina, to California, and is currently away in the Keys, serving in the Coast Guard. I've always pushed him away because I never felt I deserved they type of love he had for me. The day I first read your blog was the day he left for a 2 month patrol at sea – no phones, no contact. You inspired me to get in touch with him via email & let him know how I really feel. And now, 2 months later, he's traveling to California in 11 days & I couldn't be more thrilled.

    Thank you for your awesome, inspiring words. I decided I DO deserve a fairy tale… the kind of love that makes you want to chase each other across the country. The good stuff that makes me think I could run away to the Keys and that would be just fine. πŸ™‚

    gosh, i cannot wait to experience love like this πŸ™‚

    praying for you and baby tucker!!
