To the babe who made me a mother. | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

To the babe who made me a mother.












I remember that day in December when we found out I was pregnant. We had been trying for a few months and even though we were trying, we were still in complete shock that sex actually works! There was a baby inside of my womb, growing and thriving! We couldn't believe it, but we couldn't be more grateful for you. I remember wanting a healthy baby and saying I didn't mind it you were a boy or a girl (although, now I can admit that I REALLY wanted a girl). I remember the day we found out you were a girl and how excited I was! I remember promising from that day forward that you and I would have the kind of relationship I always wished I had with my own mother. You will never question my love for you or even wonder for 1 second if you are wanted. 

The day that you were born, I was in love with you. The moment you were placed in my arms I couldn't wait to breastfeed you, to bond with you and nourish you with my own body. It was the least I could do for you because in that moment, you made me whole. You gave me a purpose. Honestly, before you, I questioned my purpose, I wasn't sure exactly what God had in store for me. He blessed me with a wonderful husband, a hard work ethic, creativity, but there was still something missing. My favorite scripture is "perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created" and in that moment of meeting you, my moment happened. In that very moment, my purpose was to love you, to raise you, and to be your mother.

This is not a calling I will ever take lightly. It's a calling I thank God for every second of every day in my heart. I am constantly questioning what in the world someone like ME did to deserve someone like YOU! You are perfection. You have shown your dad and I how to love in a way we never knew possible. 

Thank you for being ours, B. I love you being so small but I am also so excited for your future! I can't wait for you to be a big sister, to go on shopping trips with me, for your first father-daughter date, for pedicures together, for so many fun things!

This day is in honor of what you've done for me. I know without a doubt in my mind that God knew I needed a daughter. He knew I needed YOU! I love you so much! Thank you for giving me a reason to celebrate today!
