A seed was planted, the plant is getting bigger, and in July we’ll be able to harvest. What type of plant are we growing? A baby! Instead of our garden, it’s growing in my belly! Brooklyn Farm Baby is coming in July!
I’ve already shared a few revealing videos and pictures on social media but I’ve kept it completely hush hush on the blog until now. Being half way through, now at 20 weeks, I wanted to make a post to let you know that we’ll be adding a human baby girl to our family in the Summer. Are we excited? Yes! Are we terrified? Yes! Are we dreaming of what we’ll be able to teach her and show her? Yes! Are we in disbelief that a hospital is actually going to let us leave with a baby in our car to take care of for the rest of our lives? Yes!
Matthew and I have been talking seriously about adding to our family for the past 5 years. It was always about waiting for the perfect time, but the more I sat with this and grew older the more I came to realization that no time will ever be perfect. I’m always going to be worried. I was worried before. I’m worried during. I’m going to be worried after. So last year we started the plan into action with preparation doctor appointments and other things that you do when this is a definite planned pregnancy. Then the fun part started, you know the part that everyone tells you is going to be romantic and great because you’re going to physically do the sexy dance that leads to a baby. Then months pass and it’s no longer that fun. It’s now a schedule. It’s me texting Matthew with directions like “Ovulation is max peak, be home by 7:30 tonight because I want to go to bed early”. Oh the romance of having a baby!
