Liam

A baby changes everything

Motherhood, LifeAndrea SmithComment

I'll be honest, this quote was a little hard for me to swallow because I DID NOT feel this way when I became a parent. Between the postpardum depression, and going back to work full-time, my life had been a mess and I hated being a parent. It wasn't until we made major life changes; me transitioning to a SAHM and going to see counseling for the depression has this quote making me smile. Everyday now, I fall more and more in love with my little son. I honestly thought I would never get to this point, but I finally feel for the first time in over a year, that being a parent isn't so bad. I can actually say that I love my life and my relationship with Liam grows each and everyday more beautiful than I could ever imagine.

The Thought of You

This is an older blog from when I was pregnant. I was going to update it, but it's too precious to me to change it. This post is probably one of my favorites cause it reminds me where I was when my son wasn't born yet.


Losing more sleep nowadays. But I suppose it's all in preparation for this little bundle of joy that is soon to come into the world. It's becoming more of a reality that we will be having another person in the house. When I think about Liam, I get so excited, and nervous about meeting him. What will his personality be like? What kind of hair will he have? Will he like me? Will I like him?

I know silly questions, but they actually do roll around in my head from time to time. It's amazing how we don't remember being in a cocoon in the womb. But I will get to remember his first steps, his first smile, the way he looks at me. All of these little, yet precious moments will be so beautiful and priceless I get to experience.

I am overwhelmed by the thought that our Creator God has witness these very moments with every human being on this planet. He is the perfect Father. He truly knows us from the inside out, and only He knows the depths of our weak and brokenness, and yet still embraces us as a newborn babe. I want to love my child the way He loves me.
