I’m finding that heading into the third trimester is quite the emotional event. I’m realizing that incredibly soon I’ll be meeting this little girl who I’ve carefully carried in my belly for months. Despite the little stressors of making sure you provide the right nutrition, ample rest, and quality TLC she will never be safer than where she is at this very moment. In a few short months those little stressors will turn into huge ones … ones that will require the utmost protection for this little life in this big world.
I’ve pressed through fear, doubt, anxiety, and now even though I’m overjoyed I can’t help but feel a little sad knowing my days of holding her within are numbered. Nothing prepares you for the bond you create with your little one from within … I can only imagine it must be more amazing to nurture that bond once you are holding your little one in your arms. While I’m beyond excited to experience that, I wish I could freeze time and savor these kicks and wiggles for a little while longer.
On my wedding day instead of a traditional Father/Daughter dance, I shared a Mother/Daughter dance to Rascal Flatts’ My Wish. This song makes my heart smile and the song perfectly encompasses the life my Mother worked hard to provide for me. She is my biggest cheerleader and I hope I can be as amazing of a Mother as she is.
So Mykenzi, I feel it is only fitting to share this song with you … these words are my wish for you and remember Mommy and Daddy love you more than you could ever know! We can’t wait to meet you!
