After reading this post by Eryka, I felt like I needed to express
how happy and nervous and excited and terrified I am to become a mother.
I know I've expressed this before
but this is something that has been weighing on my mind for awhile
so I want to share it a little more with you.
Eryka quoted President Boyd K Packer
from this last conference and I'm gonna steal it here:
"The creation of life is a great responsibility for a married couple.
It is the challenge of mortality to be a worthy and responsible parent.
Neither man nor woman can bear children alone.
It was meant that children have two parents - both a father and a mother.
No other pattern or process can replace this one."
My goodness that's a bit awesome right?!
I am SO beyond grateful that I have my husband.
I know for a fact that I could NOT do this alone
and I know Heavenly Father is happy with us
even though we are far from being perfect.
And I know we're going to make mistakes,
what first time parents don't after all?
But we have the Lord, and our families, to help us
when we struggle and are lost with what to do ;)
Now that we're so close to finally meeting our
little princess I'm so worried that I won't be
the mother I've always dreamed of being.
You know what I mean?
You grow up looking up to your mom and grandma
(or aunts, cousins, whomever)
and hope that you can be as good as they are to your kids.
It's a scary thought knowing how responsible you are for this
little precious one from God.
I only hope I'm up to par for her sake ;)
I already love this little bug so much,
I don't want to disappoint her or fail her in any way.
I'm also excited to dress her up,
show her off,
pass her around for others to love on her ;)
And all the other fun stuff that comes with adorable babies ;)
I'm enjoying having her grow inside
and keeping her comfy hahahaha
even when she decides to stretch
and rub her feet/arm/head/butt/or whatever body part
against my ribs and the other extremities make my belly move without my consent ;)
I so wish I could video it
but then I think that's super creepy to others and it's hard to see unless you
know what to look for hahahaha
I'm also looking forward to getting my body back in about 7-8 weeks ;)
Or at least not having constant pressure on my bladder will be super nice
and having my little one in my arms will be a major plus!
And now I'm off to watch my favorite Disney movie,
and my daughter's namesake ;)
And thank you for listening to my rambling thoughts ;)
