As Mother’s Day approaches this weekend, it seems so surreal that I am actually a mom. 9 months ago, she was merely a distant dream. Kevin and I knew we wanted to start a family in the future, but we weren’t planning it. And if you know much about me, you know that i’m a serious planner, so learning I was pregnant was a bit of a shock. And, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
As I sit here typing with Brooke in my lap, I have such an incredible joy. I wouldn’t want it any other way, God’s timing was so incredibly perfect. I still remember the feeling when I found out I was pregnant. It wasn’t at all how I imagined.
I thought I would be with Kevin when I took the test and read “positive” on that ClearBlue Pregnancy Test for the first time.
I thought we would tell our parents in a super creative way like you see in this video.
However, I found out I was pregnant when Kevin was on the way home from work and he walked into the house to a sobbing mess. Don’t get me wrong, I was extremely excited to add a little bundle of joy to our lives, but I was also scared. Being a planner, I didn’t have time to process or “plan”. I didn’t have time to get my fears all sorted out in my mind. Its crazy how you instantly love the little baby in your tummy and worry about them.
And, telling our parents in a creative way went out the window, because we were so incredibly excited. We went to dinner and couldn’t stop talking about our news, so we decided to take another ClearBlue Pregnancy Test when we got home and call our parents if it was positive too. Because the clear “Pregnant” could have meant “Not Pregnant” right?! Well, it came up with the extremely clear “Pregnant” as well, so we facetimed our parents so we could see their reaction.
That day in August will forever be near to my heart, because it is the day I started becoming a mom. And I know being a mom will be my greatest adventure. I already love Little Miss Brooke so much and being her mommy.
