My Baby Mamma
A lot of friends have been asking about Anna. It’s sweet really; that so many people care about how the pregnancy is going and how Anna is holding up. Well, when anyone asks me I always say she is doing AWESOME! As far as pregnant women go, she is a rock star. Other than some expected pain, a little heartburn, and the occasional sleepless night, she is counting down the days until she gets to hold our sweet baby, Asher.
It has been so fun to watch my wife fall head-over-heels in love with our son as he has been slowly growing inside of her. Many days I will catch her sitting in the rocking chair in Asher’s room daydreaming about the days when he is here filling our home with baby smells and sounds. Anna will say to me, “I just love him soooo much! I can’t wait to hold him!”
For me this process has been different; as is normal with new fathers. It’s more of a detached process for us because we aren’t feeling the effects of a human growing within us 24/7. However, as I have spent time watching Anna’s belly grow it has become more real to me. And I still remember feeling him kick for the first time; it was like witnessing a shooting star! Now his kicks and spins are so strong I can not only feel her stomach move, I can see it! I like to talk to him and sing him silly songs through her belly button. Often times he kicks back and makes us laugh out loud.
Anna is 8 months along and we hope that Asher will make his grand entrance into this world somewhere around November 15th. Right now he is all developed and about 4 pounds. He should gain a half pound each week and will hopefully top out at about 7.5 pounds before he delivers. Hopefully!!!
I just love watching how beautiful Anna has become through this whole process. She is already a wonderful mother and I just know that Asher will adore her! It will be awesome to watch her embrace all that God has made her to be through each new stage of parenthood. I’m her biggest fan!
