I have always known that I wanted to be a mom. I have always dreamt of a big, beautiful family. I always knew that motherhood would be a transformative experience.

I always knew that I would HATE pregnancy.

(That nine months thing is a lie by the way; 40 weeks is technically longer than nine months!)

Well let me tell you, I know God has a sense of humor because I experienced a FULL 41 weeks of pregnancy. The appointments, the unexpected medical information, peeing EVERY SINGLE TIME you visit the OBGYN and all of the poking is truly a once in a lifetime experience…

…an experience I hope to have the honor of experiencing again…

…an experience that brought me the most loving, investigative and joyful little boy…

…an experience that made me a mom!
