Today, I am the guest post over at Stillborn and Still Breathing.
My husband, Patrick, and I met on August 22nd, 2010. We both quickly realized that this was different than any other relationship that had come before. We fell in love fast and were engaged in April of 2011. We got married on the 1 year anniversary of our first “official date,” on August 27th, 2011. We both knew we really wanted kids, but thought we should wait one year before officially “trying.” It was August 25th, 2012 when I first saw those two pink lines. We were so excited! August was definitely a good month for us! We went through all of the normal first time parents excitement and nervousness. We read books, we shopped for baby clothes, we did everything you’re supposed to do. Every kick, every heartbeat were all amazing and brought so much joy. We were so filled with love for this tiny little person. We were in awe. We found out the Tuesday before Thanksgiving that this little one was a boy! We made are families wait until Thanksgiving before we would let out the secret. Everyone was so excited. The holidays came and went and I grew and grew. Every night we would sit on the sofa and relax, hands on the bump waiting for Joshua to kick and when he did, the look of pure joy across his father’s face was enough to make me fall in love over and over again.
