these days.

It’s only a matter of days until we meet our second son and despite the challenges this pregnancy has lent, I’ve never felt happier in my life. My recent weeks have been spent at home with Luca and when I look back to this period of time, it won’t be the trials of pregnancy I recall. I will remember days filled with puzzles, books, forts, giggles, kisses and hugs. I will remember telling Luca (over and over) how much he means to me, hoping he can feel my words even if he can’t quite understand them all. And I will remember how incredibly well behaved this boy is, because these weeks could have been much harder on me if he wasn’t such an easy spirit. I am so grateful to have had this time together, just the two of us. 

I’ve been thinking a lot about the first time Luca was placed in my arms. Looking down at his sweet little face, I felt this new type of love rush through me. Before that moment, I had no idea that such an immense capacity to love existed in me. And little did I know just how much that love was going to grow. It never ceases to amaze me, this motherhood thing. That is what makes me most excited for baby #2, the fact I will be so much more aware of the blessing I am holding. 

Baby #2, we are ready for you to join the party, anytime! Let the countdown begin..
