Thankful Thursday

I won’t be including a picture. I am updating from my home computer and my home computer likes to spaz out and crash when I do too many things at once, because it sucks.

Today, I am thankful for my Nellie Rose. The sweet, tiny little girl that’s growing inside of my womb as I sit here typing. I’m going to get to see her again next Saturday for our big 3D ultrasound and I can’t wait. One more look at her before she makes her big debut.

Yesterday, my doctor checked my cervix for dilation. I was amazed that it’s come to that already… My girl is really and truly just a few short weeks away from being in my arms. How did the time go so quickly? It seems like just yesterday I was standing in my bathroom, staring in disbelief at the positive pregnancy test, feeling overwhelmed that it had finally happened… It feels like yesterday that I first saw my tiny little baby on the ultrasound, giving us a wiggle and looking like a Gummi Bear. I felt like I was never going to get out of the first trimester; into that “safety zone” and now I’m just a few weeks away from delivery. The moment I’ve waited for for so long is going to be here before I know it.

Nellie Rose…. Thank you again for choosing me to be your mama. Thank you for staying with me, for growing big and healthy. I cherish every bump, every kick and every flutter that you give me. Even when you dig your little feet into my ribs.. I love it. I love to think about you; to imagine what you’re going to look like. I spend many moments dreaming about your personality, about what your likes and dislikes will be. We picked out your first stuffed animal yesterday.. One that’s from me and daddy. I hope that you will like it. I love you so much, little girl, and it’s amazing to me that my heart will fill even more with love when I lay eyes on you. It takes my breath away to think about how much richer my life will become with you in it… Because it’s already been enriched so much just by your kicks and nudges. Today – and every day – Nellie Rose, I am thankful for you.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it. I am looking forward to eating myself into a food coma later.
