Becoming Three

The other day while in the shower (isn’t that where everyone does their deep soul searching?) I decided to start a family blog. I’ve had a few blogs, mainly just for myself but since we’re growing by one soon, I figured it was a good time to start one as a family. I’ll use it as a place to share what life is like with a newborn, updates on her and of course all the great milestones we’ll witness and reach.

I still can’t believe that I’m due in less then a month! There’s no doubt that I have been blessed with a wonderful easy going pregnancy, I can only hope labor is the same. Her room is ready, her bag (not mine) is packed and so for now, we just wait. I haven’t really had any signs of labor, I think I finally felt my first braxton hick last night and few throughout the day today. They weren’t anything to call home about though but it was the first time I felt some action. I really don’t think she’s going anywhere anytime soon, she’s still really high and at my last appointment she as sitting nice and comfortable (if you know what I mean). We’ll see though, I know that can change in a blink of an eye.

It still blows my mind that before we know it, we’ll bring home our first child and start our life as a family. I get asked a lot if I’m nervous and I would be lying to say that I’m not; but Pablo and I have done a lot of talking and we know that a child changes things. We know our life as we know isn’t over and as long as we keep our communication open and lean on each other, we’ll make it. I’m just going to roll with the punches and see where they land us. Millions of people have had babies and millions of people have made it, so I think we’re good.

I’ll have to come back and blog about Natalia’s nursery and her baby shower so that way all that stuff is documented and put on the inter webs so maybe one day she can come back and read all about those important things. I wish I had started this blog sooner, but it’s better late then never.

I can’t wait to share the good, the bad and the ugly in raising our child, of course with lots of pictures and hopefully fun videos!
