Baby Bo is coming tomorrow. As I sit here watching my big girl play with her rocks (her new favorite toy lately), I am overcome with so many different emotions. I can remember the day before Jens was induced (my babies don't like to come on their own, apparently) being completely hysterical (I blame it on the hormones) about it not just being "us" anymore. Don't get me wrong, I was so excited to be a mom and to finally meet our sweet baby, but it would never again just be Ben and me.

And now today, I can't help but be a tiny bit sad about it not ever being just "us" again. It'll never just be Ben, and Jens, and me - our little family of 3. But my joy and excitement exponentially outweighs my sadness. And most importantly, I am just so happy and blessed that our "us" keeps changing. "Us" will now include a precious baby boy, and we just cannot wait.

Thanks for making me a mom, Jenson Kaye. I'll always love you the longest.


  1. So excited for you! :) Your kids are so very blessed to have you as their momma. Praying everything goes well tomorrow.

  2. I felt this same way before each of my babies were excited but at the same time so sad that everything was changing. And then once the new little one arrived, it seemed as though he/she was always a part of our family. Congrats on precious Bo!
