it keeps getting better and better!


My favorite part of being pregnant (aside from the miracle of growing a baby, our baby) is seeing how our marriage has changed. Changed for the better! Eric and I are closer than ever and it's the BEST feeling. I know that our marriage will continue to change and that we will grow together from here to eternity (ha!) but I'm just loving where we are right now!
I feel like we are in a "honeymoon" phase, but it's so much better than our actual honeymoon-newly-wed stage. It's so much more satisfying because of the ups and downs that we've experienced in the past 4+ years of marriage. We're more in love that we could have imagined, despite the bad and because of the good.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude that I am married to such an amazing man. Eric is so loving, goofy and loyal. Not to mention super hot ;) I can count on him for anything and everything. I couldn't ask for anything more from my husband and daddy to my babies. It's an amazing feeling knowing that we are in this together, no matter what! We have made it through difficult times together, and will continue to make it through those trials as our family grows.
As I'm sitting here with the laptop resting on my thighs, and baby girl is kicking my arm as I type (my belly creates the best resting spot for my arm) I am reminded once again that God is good! And my life, despite all the "bad", is SO good.

I love that she isn't even born yet but you are enjoying every single stage. Everyone knows being pregnant isn't the most comfortable thing, but its sweet how you cherish it for the miracle it is.

Keep up that communication and patience once the baby comes. Some people find that babies destroy their relationships with their significant others. I personally think their relationships probably weren't that strong to begin with. I think you guys will be fine.
