Hi! I’m a new mother of my sweet baby boy. When we got pregnant, I prayed that I would be able to stay at home with my son. I was so thankful that God has blessed us and continues to provide for me to stay home. I love that my husband is so supportive of me. When things get tight and I ask my husband, “Should I go back to work?” My heart stops as I secretly pray, please Lord I wanna stay home. He shakes his head, putting his arms around me, “This is where you belong, our son needs you here.” I breathe a sigh of relief, my heart would break of I had to go back to work. I’ve never been a career driven women. I went to college for two years-not knowing what I wanted to do. I had a job in insurance as a customer service rep and dropped out of college and pursed that full-time. As a child I’ve always wanted to be a mommy. I’m thankful everyday that God has blessed me with this opportunity. It’s the hardest job I’ve ever done. And some days I wonder how I will make it through. I think, this isn’t for me, I’m not a super mom like all those other moms. But even in those doubtful moments, I know my Sweet Baby, needs me here and I need to be here for him.
Growing up I prayed for my future husband. I would daydream of what he’d be like. What our life would be like married and about our first baby. All my dreams and all my hopes-never have been as great as my husband is. That just goes to show you, God’s plans for us are always better. Just trust in Him. I’m so thankful I have. My husband is a very talented guy. He is a part-time musician. He can pick up any instrument, give him 10 minutes, and he can be playing on it in no time. He wears many hats and being self-employed he is contracted out to different jobs.
Our Sweet Baby is growing right before our eyes. He has such a personality now it makes me laugh. He looks so much like his poppa that when people tell me he looks like me I think, what baby are you looking at? But I love that he looks so much like his poppa. Although my mother in law says when Sweet Baby smiles, she see’s me. He loves to talk and sing and kick his little feet. I should’ve known that with how much he always moved in my belly.
We don’t have everything together, but the one thing we have is Jesus Christ is our savior. We are so thankful to Him and the life He has given us. I’m so thankful to be a mom and a wife and I love having a house full of boys. But Lord, could I ask for just one girl?
