Will you be a mama’s boy or daddy’s little girl?

“I wonder who you’ll look like…
Will your hair fall down and curl,
Will you be a mama’s boy
Or daddy’s little girl?”

I am nearly seven weeks pregnant, and I don’t think it really hit me until I looked at the ultrasound screen yesterday and saw the speedy fluttering of what will be my son’s or daughter’s heart. Even when I’m holding this child and watching it grow up, I don’t think I’ll ever believe it. It feels like just yesterday I was a little girl myself, or learning to ride a bike, or a teenager falling in love.

I’ve never been a baby person, and I don’t consider myself put together enough to teach anyone else how to live. I’m not over-emotional or attached or dependent. I don’t know why God thinks I’m qualified. But I do know that there is something beautiful about this. And it’s going to change my life and Jimmy’s life forever.

  1. Elijah is almost 2 now and I still can't believe I am a mother. I still feel like the same girl I was when I graduated high school… selfish and just wanting to have fun. I am not a baby person (and the thought of having another one terrifies me). I do not feel equipped. And yet, there's Elijah. He's happy. He's good. He adores me. And I am reminded that I'm making it. You will be an amazing mother Shannon Elizabeth. Even if you don't believe it, I do… and we both know that God does too 🙂
