Today I am thankful for so many things. I’ve been trying to decide how I was going to start this blog for a little while now, and now just seems like the right time (the fact that I may or may not be putting off organizing a bunch of baby things might also be a reason.)
We had our baby shower for Lucas yesterday. It was such a special day for us, and I’m so thankful for everyone who was able to make it & how much everyone loves our little baby already. The shower was perfect, and I was so happy to spend the day with so many of our closest family & friends.
This week has been a little crazy. Besides the normal-ness of pregnancy craziness, add a car accident & the excitement of a baby shower to that mix. I imagine getting in to any car accident is scary, but getting in to a car accident when you’re 8 months pregnant is really scary. I ended up having to stay in the hospital for 24 hours for monitoring. Baby is A-OK. Basically as soon as the accident happened, I felt him moving around in there & took that as a sign that he was letting me know he was okay, which I think was able to help keep me calm/not freak out. Our little man’s looking out for mommy already. 🙂 I am very thankful for that. Being in the hospital was no fun, but I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, and maybe it was preparing me to be in there for the real deal in less than TWO MONTHS! What?! Where did my pregnancy go?
Anyways, everything that has been going on this week has made my heart even more full (how is that possible?) I am so thankful for our baby, my incredible fiance, all of our family & friends, having so many people who care about us & our baby, having such a solid support system, reclining hospital beds, & just life in general. It’s not always perfect, but there are many perfect moments … so enjoy them as they come 🙂
