*Disclaimer:Lol, so after I went back to proof this post, I realized the title of this could be super misleading! So, for the record, NO I am not pregnant and Matt and I aren't currently trying to get pregnant. I've just got babies on the brain!* Lately (and by lately, I mean for the past 5 years or so) it seems like everyone's having babies! My Facebook feed is constantly blowing up with pictures of newborns or adorable "we're expecting" images. One of my best friend's is pregnant with her 3rd! Now, when Matt and I got married I had a hard and fast 5-7 rule. Any time someone would give me that sweet, sneaky look and hint around about when we would start trying, I'd shut them down quick with my famous "we aren't even THINKING about trying for 5-7 years." We weren't waiting because I hate kids, or I'm not really excited to have them. Quite the opposite. I just know when I'm a mom, I will completely embrace that role. We wanted to give our relationship space to develop and enjoy each other. It also gave me time to get a business off the ground and we'll more than likely be purchasing a house between now and then.
However, lately I've started getting excited about it. Gosh, it feels like a dirty, little secret even to admit that out loud. I find myself wandering through the baby clothes section at Target. I listen to my sweet friends talk to me about what their pregnancies are like or what their little boy learned to do over the weekend and I find myself imagining how that would feel. I can't wait to see a little person who is a genetic representation of Matt and I. Will they have his dimples? My curly hair? His quiet demeanor? Or my flair for the dramatic?
We are still on the 5-7 plan and it looks like we'll start trying in a year and a half or so. We have some pretty awesome, major changes happening with Matt's job right now that will dictate some of our next steps. (Like what city we'll live in and where we can buy a house, etc.) And right now, I'm really enjoying just being excited. The simple joy of anticipation when you know big moments are just around the corner is a beautiful thing. I don't feel impatient or tense, I'm just...happy. Content in the incredible season Matt and I are experiencing. Life is good.
Now, for the thing that inspired this post! You all know I'm all about weddings over here, but my amazing best friend had her first little boy over the weekend! I had the privilege of documenting the day and put together a little video for them, which you can view here. Still can't watch it without crying...he is just the SWEETEST! Enjoy this little peek into their special day.
