The biggest faith project of my life has been this child. Every woman has a different story as to what their pregnancy journey was like, some are a lot harder than others.
I don’t know if I’ll ever share mine, but just know the news of this baby has sent us into a three and a half month celebration. Complete with lots of happy tears…not excluding this moment as I write this, haha.
Every day a new layer of realization that we’re having a child sinks into my brain. There are moments when I feel like the little girl version of me dreaming of the kids I’ll one day have. And in those moments it’s a pretty marvelous thing to think I’ll be able to meet that “future child” in just about six months.
Yesterday I got to announce whether we’re having a boy or girl on the morning show by using really adorable clothes from GAP kids in West Town Mall. Click here to watch it, then keep reading!
It’s Valentine’s week and I’ve fallen in love with a new boy. His name is Jackson Edward.
A name I love not only because it comes from his dad (my husband’s middle name is Edward, as is his dad’s and his grandpa’s). The name Jackson came about first because I love the different sounds. I won’t go into the details, but I really love the sounds the consonants make (I know, word nerd alert) :)
His name is also special because it’s part of the name of my hometown, and the fact that my kid gets to carry that around with him is really cool.
I can’t wait to meet this little man! He’s so deeply loved already, I can’t wait to tell him that to his sweet little face.
Thanks for reading along. The best is yet to come!
