Over the past 4 years I have found myself wondering at times what it would be like to love my own child. My brother & his wife gave birth to their first child in September of 2004. I never knew how much fun being an aunt could be, but more than that, I never knew I was capable of loving such a small person SO much. In September of 2008 they had their second little girl and although I wondered if I would always favor Emily, their firstborn, I realized quickly that those thoughts would never cross my mind again. To say that we have had fun watching these sweet girls grow is an understatement to say the least. Just as I wondered if I could ever have such an attachment to Allison as I do to Emily, I often wondered what it would be like when we had children of our own. Luke would joke with me that there might not be enough love to go around.
Today I realized that could not be further from the truth. Luke and I found ourselves in a Labor & Delivery room at the hospital. Before I go any further, I should let you know that it was simply a precaution and that Miss Madelyn is doing great! I had a little mishap- passed out, fell on my stomach- and so the doctor decided that monitoring the baby for 4 hours would be a good way to make sure that everything was OK! As we sat in that room, listening to our little one's heart beat, I could not help but look over at the little baby bed. It blows my mind to think that in just 10 short weeks we will see our little girl lay on that bed. I could feel her tiny feet kicking my stomach and the reality that soon she will grace us with her presence made my heart so full! I love this little life that is growing inside of me so much! It amazes me that God gives us the ability to love in ways we never even imagined.
