A Time to Remember: 30 Weeks Pregnant

I'm in my 30th week of pregnancy and I have to say, it's absolutely wonderful! Now, don't get me wrong, I am really sore and tired but, I am so happy that it's not bringing me down a single peg!

This weekend, after my second baby shower, I got a lot done in the nursery. I folded a bunch of tiny clothes and smiled as I pictured her wearing each one. I also organized her tiny toys in bins and containers. Needless to say, my heart was definitely happy this weekend!

I absolutely love, love, love feeling this baby girl kick and move around. It just gets so much more amazing each day! Yesterday, I got my biggest kick from her, yet. I shouted out loud at work; it scared me, then I laughed. She's so strong now, and a lot more active during the day this week; particularly after I eat.

I am SO in love with this little girl! My husband is so in love with her, too. He often asks how she is doing, as if she's already here and a part of our family. Which, she really is already a part of our family. She's a part of our family that makes us smile each day, and laugh often. Her kicks show us a glimpse into her personality. We spend a lot of time lounging around, with my husband's hand on my belly. Last night, he had to pull away because he was getting kicked (or elbowed) so much! She really loves to give him a good jab. And, she loves his voice! And she really loves it when we hug; that always gets her dancing around! I feel like she already loves us as much as we love her.

Pregnancy, while it can be hard and filled with worry, is truly amazing. I can't believe that in about 10 weeks (give or take), we will finally meet this little girl that has been filling our hearts with so much joyful anticipation! And yet, while I really can't wait to meet her, I am making sure to also take this time to truly enjoy being together in this moment, just as we are now.
