Thoughts of the day...

So I've had a couple of thoughts today.

First off, I'm not sure how this boy...
Became this 14 year old!

He used to be my baby brother. I just don't understand. It's really mind boggling. My sisters birthdays always make me feel like they are getting closer to my age. They aren't, but it's not as weird to me. I guess moving to college when he was in kindergarten will do that. What a fun addition to our girl dominated family he is. Happy birthday to my favorite brother!

Other time zooming thoughts are thinking how crazy it is that in about 7 short weeks, our lives will never be the same. We will have a baby girl that will be ours forever. I pretty much have every emotion possible right now. I'm excited. I'm terrified. I'm tired. I'm happy. You name it. I wonder if we will be ready. I wonder if we will be good parents. I pray that she doesn't come too early because then I'll have to go back to work. I worry that I'm not prepared. I hope that she is healthy and strong. I love her little flips and kicks. And now as we inch closer, I am just so anxious to see her! And my curiosity leads me to also wonder if she will be in this category...

Or this baby category...

*I'm pretty sure this is no one's actual baby, but if it is no offense is intended, it's just one Google Images pulled up*

I know we as her parents will probably always put her in the first category, but you have to wonder...


  1. What a fantastic boy! I sure do love him. :)
    And I love you and your definitely beautiful baby girl too.

  2. Have you ever been on those websites that mix your picture and your husbands picture into what your kid will look like? Yikes is all I have to say!

  3. That is crazy that Will is so grown up! Ahhh 7 weeks! That's going to come fast. You will be great parents and I'm sure your baby girl will be beautiful and will not look like a troll.

  4. i am so afraid of what me and victor's kids could look like...

  5. Hahaha, well to be honest, Jared wasn't the best looking baby at first, but now he's pretty dang cute. So, if your girly comes out looking like the second pic, don't worry, she'll grow out of it. And with such a good lookin' mama, she (and you!) has nothing to worry about!
    Good luck with everything!
