A gorgeous cascade

pregnant lady waiting for babyBeing pregnant is like keeping a fragile secret. You don’t want to whisper it too loudly, for fear of it shattering by the sheer weight of the thing.

From that Tuesday night when those tell-all double pink lines appeared, I’ve felt a massive amount of responsibility to protect our little buddy. We prefer to reference our growing baby as “our little buddy” as opposed to “it”. An “it” is a thing, not a life. Our little buddy is most certainly alive (and can certainly pack quite the punch on poor mamma, but forgiveness flows freely.)

More than anything I’ve been astounded at how quickly mine and Ben’s love for each other multiplied. You worry that when babies come, you won’t have enough love or time to go around for all. I’ve found just the opposite.

Love is piled upon love.

Life upon life.

Ben’s life for mine, mine for his, ours for our little buddy, and Christ’s life for us all.

A gorgeous cascade.

    This is a gorgeous description of how couples should feel towards marriage and having children. We’ve only been married since September and our biggest fear is that we love one another so much that we won’t have enough to spare! This helped with that feeling! Thank you!!!!

      Thank you so much for reading Lydia! I’m so glad it was an encouraging post. (And congrats on your recent marriage! Isn’t the newlywed life just wonderful?!) We were worried about that before our news came along, and I am so happy to say it truly has been the opposite. I’m sure that we – like all parents – will have to keep working at our marriage relationship with little kiddos running around, but so far it looks like we won’t take much convincing to do the work 🙂
