my heart you have


25.5 weeks along now. It's been going by real fast. Almost too fast sometimes... And yet not fast enough.


Jackie took these photos of us and I love them. At first I was a little hesitant to ask because I thought it was a silly thing to do. But now that I have them I am so grateful. This is such a special time in our lives. There's this small window right before we have this baby. It freaks me out a little bit to think our lives are about to be turned upside down, or right side up... whichever way you look at it. It's this time where I want to remember every little thing about this pregnancy and never forget how special it is. I get goosebumps sometimes thinking  how lucky we are to have a baby. The other day I was folding teeny tiny onesies and it hit me how much I already love this baby, and I cried. I can't even imagine the love I'll have for it when I can hold it in my arms. But until then, I'll just keep reminding myself how magical this time is and try to enjoy all the baby kicks and squirms.
