One Year


One year since I saw that beautiful word "pregnant" read across that pregnancy test screen.

It's unbelievable how fast time flies when you're having fun and just plain happy. As soon as I saw that hour glass turn to the word pregnant, my eyes instantly started to swell, and tears started rolling down my cheeks. I will never forget that morning. After eight long months of trying to get pregnant, it was the most overwhelming feeling of joy, happiness, and thankfulness. I was finally going to be a mommy. David was finally going to be a daddy. We were finally going to be a family of three.

I documented that amazing day here.
I am so happy that I have this day documented in detail. I love being able to go back and read every little detail. I love that Leah will be able to go back and read every little detail. That makes my heart happy. That is why I started this blog. To be able to look back and remember these memories. Our memories.

I'm also thankful for the special moments David has documented on video of our family. These videos perfectly capture the special and intimate moments of becoming a family of three. 

These are moments that I wish I could bottle up and relive over and over, and these videos allow me to do that. I feel like I am able to relive those very moments. When I watch these videos and hear the music I am instantly taken back to that very moment in time. It brings me an unbelievable amount of happiness. Below is the video he created of our pregnancy announcement. I secretly filmed him the day I found out we were pregnant and then we secretly filmed telling our family and friends.

It's been one special year.
We love you so much, Leah. Each day I think being your mommy can't possibly get any better than it already is, but it always does! I still can't believe you are ours. I thank God everyday for you. You bring more joy and love to our life than we ever thought was possible.
