I want to be honest...I didn't love being pregnant. I was sick and in a lot of pain for about eight months out of the nine. What I did love were the little moments in between. Like when I first felt the little fishy swimming around inside of me as I watched television. Or when Baby Greene had the hiccups just as I was about to fall asleep. One of my favorite moments didn't even involve me...Matt would rest his head on my belly and listen to the baby's heartbeat. I was a bit jealous, but more in awe of what we were all experiencing at that very moment. Being pregnant is amazing. It's incredible how you get sick, how you expand and how you ride an emotional roller coaster. It's amazing that you get a tiny human in the end to love, forever and ever.
Sophia and Chris are expecting a little baby girl in just a few weeks. They are excited and nervous, but I think a little more on the excited side. Chris asked me for my best advice for a parent-to-be, which I replied by saying that I don't like to give too much advice because it's just so different for everyone. What I did tell them is to really soak in the time when your little baby curls up and sleeps three inches from your chin and six inches from your belly button. That my friends, was a truly beautiful time.
Congratulations Sophia and Chris on the upcoming arrival of your little baby girl. I can't wait to meet her!
PS: A vacuum really can be a life saver ;) Or in new parent terms...a sleep saver ;)
