lately i have been trying to get things in order for baby boys arrival. organizing, cleaning and getting his room set up. it's been really fun and i am so excited to have him here with us. to complete our family. to bring another fun personality into our little pair. we have been just us for 6 1/2 years now so it seems weird that there will be another person in our family, but it also feels right. i am so excited for our adventures as a family!
i've also been wondering what kind of personality this kid is going to have. i took a prenatal yoga class and the teacher recommended we make a list of all the qualities we want our baby to have, like this connection that i have with him right now will make it so that he will somehow absorb my hopes for him. i think it's a beautiful sentiment, so i thought i would jot down a few things. i hope he is funny! i hope he is kind, loving and tender, but that he also knows how to stick up for himself and stand for truth. i hope he is strong physically so that he can keep up with his jock of a dad and take care of others. i hope he is sweet like his father, and that he lights up when he smiles just like tyler does. i hope he has passion for good things and that he enjoys being social and being outside. i hope he has my eye color and my hair/hair line, but tyler's eye shape. of course i hope he is cute, and has really kissable cheeks! honestly, if he looks just like his dad i will have no qualms about it. and i suppose right now, most of all, i hope he is a good eater & sleeper, just like his mama.
so i leave you with these thoughts and these wonderful photos our friend megan guererro took for us. i will cherish these photos for as long as i live. this whole pregnant thing isn't a walk in the park, but i sure do love it. but i think that's just like everything else in life that's worth doing. it's hard, but it's SO worth it.
