A third little one. A new heart beating inside me. Due at the end of October 2015. We are so excited and happy. I am so thankful for every waking moment of knowing that I’m holding another beating heart safely within. <3
I feel now, just like I felt with my first two, that I don’t want to take anything for granted. That sound of that sacred heartbeat, the miracle it is to create a life, carry it and then deliver. I feel like I fully understand what it is, this gift to be a mother. Maybe there’s a bit more clarity this time around, now that my littlest one is almost 2 and her sister is almost 3. Rick and I never put a number on how many children we would have, we sorta have just been taking it one kid at a time. And after two, we still didn’t feel like our family was complete. I’m so lucky to have a man who loves children as much as I do.
This is a self-portrait that I attempted yesterday. It was my first time ever messing with the self-timer on my camera. But this is me and we are currently 12 weeks here and I am shocked at just how much I’ve grown already. EEK
And since this is probably our last little one, I am determined to capture all the phases of this pregnancy. Hopefully I just get better at these ‘selfie’s. 🙂
