Old and Loving Acquaintances…

17 May

Any day now, my life as I know it, and my life as I have always known it for the last 28 years is going to change.

My darling husband and I are expecting a little bundle of joy to arrive sometime in the next two to three weeks.

I read a quote the other day that really resonated with me.

It read… “A mother and her unborn baby are old and loving acquaintances who cannot wait to set eyes on each other” – Thomas Verney.

I, most definitely, cannot wait to set my eyes on our most precious, infinitely adored little person, who I am already so head over heels in love with – be still my heart – what will I be like when he/she is here??

I suppose my heart will swell to be the largest it has ever been to fit all the love in 🙂

Bring it on, I say.


Me at 31 weeks pregnant. I am going to miss my bump!

    We are thinking of you both as your special day approaches and we wish you a safe and happy experience. Your little one is blessed with two wonderful parents and a loving family to come home to so baby’s birthday is already off to a great start. We can’t wait to meet this new little Aitken when next we visit.

    All our love
    Denise, Bill and the kids
