the time has come.

my baby could come anytime.
tonight, tomorrow, but for sure by saturday.
this is pure craziness!
i'm excited and very anxious.
much like this!

for ten months you have this human growing inside of you and sometimes it literally feels like you are never going to meet him/her.  then, all of the sudden it becomes real.
matt will be a father come father's day.
i will be a mom.
we will have a child.

i'm so excited to start this new chapter in our lives.
i know that everything will change.  
but it will be good changes.
i've wanted to be a mom since i was a wee little one.
and now, my dream is coming true.
next time i post you will all meet my child.
the baby boy that matt and i created and i carried for 10 months.

i already know i'm going to be an emotional hot mess the first time i lay eyes on baby brooks.
i cry reading other people's birth stories daily.
i already love him so much and he's not even here yet.
when i think about seeing him for the first time and the doctor laying him on my chest i truly become overwhelmed with happiness and love.
it is such a miracle what our bodies were made to do.
he will be the purest, most heavenly thing.  he will literally be perfect.
i feel so blessed every single day that i have this opportunity to carry a child and become a mother.
pregnancy was not the funnest, easiest thing for me, but i know that when i meet him it will all be worth it.

oh, i just love him!

on a lighter note, as i was looking for this jumping picture i came across some other doozies that matt captured of me on the beach.
now, generally i would say i'm a pretty cute person....but man i can sure do some ugly things :)

over and out.
wish me luck!
and feel free to send prayers my way :)
