I am now almost 18 weeks and finally decided I should start taking some pregnant photos. When I think about June, it seems so far away but then I realize that I am almost already halfway through this pregnancy... which I can't quite be happy about! I know some of you will think I'm crazy (or hate me for saying this) but I really love being pregnant. It's such a short time and I love the feeling that my body is this amazing vessel of creating a human. Each time I've been pregnant, I've marveled at my body's abilities and knowledge of how to create life. Yes, certain things are very uncomfortable (and I don't feel bad about complaining every once in a while) but overall, I'm pretty blessed to be able to have somewhat comfortable and "normal" pregnancies. I am so grateful to God for giving me the blessing of being a mother. I dearly love my boys and am so excited for the opportunity to raise and love a daughter. I feel anxious for the hard times to come but I'm also hopeful that through the amazing examples of my mother, sisters and friends - that I can be a good role model to her. I hope I can teach her to love her body, to love her mind, to love her divine nature as a daughter of God. I hope that I can teach her through my own example.
