Up until 5 months ago, Mother's Day has been a hard, bitter-sweet day. My heart still aches for those who are hoping and praying to receive the blessing to be a mom. I honestly never thought I would get that blessing in this life. But, today has a totally different meaning to me now that I actually am going to be a mom. I just can't believe that my one dream for the past 9 years is coming true.
This little baby boy is so special to us. He has allowed for so much healing for me and now my Rosie.
We drove back home, picked up the hot dogs from our house to take up to my mom and dad's house for a BBQ. We forgot the hot dogs and buns as we left. We got a half a block away from our house and realized, so we hurried and turned around because I said Ringo has probably gotten to them, not thinking that he would in that short period of time. I walked in the house and he was chowing down on some hot dog buns. He only got 2 of them, thankfully. He is such a naughty dog. We got up to my parents' and had a yummy BBQ with my Grandma, brother, sister, dad and most importantly, my mom. It was absolutely beautiful outside and the burger and hot dog tasted so good! The baby started moving while we were sitting there and my mom got to feel him for the first time!
I'm so grateful for my little baby bump, to feel my son move ( I still can't believe I get to say MY SON) and to have the wonderful moms ( family & friends) in my life. It was a great pre-Mother's Day!
