a little surprise that's getting bigger
I've had a little babe living in my belly now for about 19 weeks and it's finally really starting to show.
We are thrilled to see our family grow and for Minnie to be a big sister.
She L O V E S loves herself a baby and I'm hopeful that's still the case come July.
It seemed as though the minute we thought about having our first baby I was pregnant with Minnie.
This time, the process took us a little longer and there were months where I became so disheartened.
Looking back, I am grateful for the time we had to struggle (albeit only 4 or so months, which is nothing in comparison to many who are seeking to conceive).
It brought us closer together as a family and helped me appreciate my little Minnie that much more.
When I finally got the double line on my pregnancy test I wanted to shout it from the rooftops.
And then when I was sick for 17 weeks I had to remind myself how lucky I was and how much I'd wanted this.
It is a gift to be a mother and I am reminded of that daily.
Soon our little family of 3 will be a family of 4.
My cup runneth over.
