So since we are going to be chatting with each other a lot over the next 9 months ;) I figured it would be nice to get to know each other more. The roll call is rather brief so, please, introduce yourself!
I am a 28 year old SAHM to a little ball of energy and joy...lol...she is 15 mo old and is truly the.greatest.thing.that.has.EVER.happened.to.me! She is the definition of High-Needs, so she truly humbled me in my idea of motherhood. I've spent more than half of my life babysitting and being a full-time nanny to families with multiple Special Needs children, so i thought it would be *easy* to have just one baby of my own. Well she has thrown everything i *thought* i knew out the window. haha. It is soooooo good though! She has made me such a better person and taught me to slow down and view the world in a completely new light! i love and adore having the priviledge to be her mama! Like it shows in my signature I also have two babies waiting for me in heaven. Those losses were the hardest things that have ever happened to me. Taking on motherhood is not for the faint of heart. But i do not allow that to keep me from falling head-over-heels in love with this rainbow baby that my DH and i so badly wanted to conceive and can't wait to hold in April 2014!! I am over-the-moon excited to be pregnant, have this baby and give DD a brother of sister! We want a whole lot of kids so hopefully we are on our way.
Let's see... what else? I love to oil paint, love the outdoors, love my Catholic faith, love cooking, love afternoon siestas, and i am obsessed with water...surfing, sailing, swimming... i grew up on/in the pacific ocean and swear that it's saltwater that runs through my veins instead of blood. ;) DD was born in the water at home and that is our plan for this LO, too.
Just SO HAPPY to be here and share this sacred journey with you all! Yay April babies!
