Letter to my Valentine


I am forever grateful for the blessing that you have been in my life. Over the past several years, my life has changed SO much but ALL for the better. My love for you grows more and more with each passing day.

You make a wonderful friend, an amazing husband and will be an extravagant father! I can’t wait to embark on the journey of parenthood together here in just a few short months! My heart overflows with peace knowing that our daughter will have such an amazing, Godly man in her life; to guide her, protect her, to be her confidant and to love her unconditionally and because of that, I will be eternally thankful!  

Thank you for allowing me to be who I am as a person and not expecting anything more than what I am! I look forward to many, many, many more years of happiness to come with you by my side!

I love you and Happy Valentine’s Day!

My heart is full of love ...

You are the poem I dreamed of writing, 

the masterpiece I longed to paint. 

You are the shinning star I reached 

for in my ever hopeful quest for a life fulfilled. 

You are my child.

Now with all things I am blessed.

February 1st - 23 weeks

Here is a picture of me in my 23rd week! 

Blaykleigh is about 11.5 inches in length by now and weighs in a little over a pound. 

I can feel her move around all the time these days! Her most "active" periods of movement
are definitely at night as I am laying down for bed and then early in the morning. Jason has felt her move a few times now, even though he is convinced what he felt wasn't "really her"! I absolutely enjoy any flutter, kick or punch I can get from her ... even if it is starting to disturb my sleep. I guess she is preparing me for the days to come
