    Thank you so much for your positive and beautiful thoughts about motherhood. I love to see things like this in a culture that can be so hostile to children and childbearing. You have sacrificed a lot to be a mother, but it’s nothing compared to the blessings you’ll receive.

    Beautiful!! I remember those days..days I never wanted to end..days that went by so fast..I loved those days I loved those baby years. My baby is 12 and God blessed us with nine pregnancy and eight healthy children. When my baby was three our first grandson was born so I kept enjoying those baby days. Now we are expecting our seventh grandson..this next chapter is amazing. We are so blessed!!!
    You are so beautiful and amazing. Enjoy every minute!!
    Praying the Lord blesses you with an easy delivery and healthy babe!!

  5. Andddddd I’m crying! I’ve been having serious baby fever now that our first is almost two. I miss her being a baby but it’s so amazing watching her develop into this smart and beautiful little girl. Beautiful post!

    Thank you for this, Lynzy! My son just turned one, and stopped breastfeeding a few weeks before that. It’s all bittersweet, because I enjoy watching him grow, change, and learn, but at the same time, I just want him to be my tiny newborn baby forever. He’s my first baby, though, and Lord willing, he won’t be my last. So the hope of more newborn smells and snuggles keeps me going when I feel like time is escaping me.
    I’m also learning to appreciate everything about my son, even the difficult things like teething and sleepless nights. It’ll all be gone before I know it, and he’ll be a grown man with his own baby one day. So I really am trying to cherish every big and little thing.
    Praying for you and your family as you welcome a precious new little life soon!

    Love the very end! I am expecting my first baby and I find myself excited while mourning the chapter of just my husband and I. Needed your words. Thank you! #hormones.

    I’ve followed along with you on your pregnancy as my Daughter is I think a week or so older than your son. Just stumbled across this today and it was exactly what I needed to read!!

    Thank you for this post! I needed this today. My first is only just turning 4 months so I know I have a lot of special moments and milestones to come. My baby has been a terrible sleeper since birth and just this week I stopped nursing him to sleep and now today was his first day napping alone in his room. I have been waiting for this day for 4 months just to be able to not have to hold him for his nap and now that the moment has come I felt SO sad. I’m so proud of him but so sad because I know I can’t make him regress and sneak in a snuggled up nap just for my benefit so our days of laying in bed for naps are over. Thank you!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, for writing this! I so needed to read this! I took a screenshot of it so that I can read it again and again and be reminded of this anytime I need it.

    Your blog always speaks to me and I’m so thankful you do what you do!
