At Long Last

This is a day I have dreamed of for much of my teenage and adult life. I have always loved children and all things surrounding them. I can remember when I was 12 or 13 years old just LOVING to hold babies and Mrs. Hampton telling me that she hoped it would be at least 10 years until I was holding one of my own... Well that day is finally on the horizon and I am so excited, to say the least!

So today I made history for myself, I purchased my first official piece of maternity clothing!!! I know kind of ridiculous to be buying clothing I won't be able to wear for another couple of months, but oh well, I just couldn't resist. A beautiful pair of wool H&M Maternity pants with belt loops and pockets in the back, nicely lined... I didn't even try them on. Ok so that would have been way ridiculous! I am still wearing my favorite jeans and fitting nicely into all my normal clothes, I'm only 14 weeks you see. But the deal maker with these pants was they were only $1.35. Now who in their right mind can pass that up? I mean even a non-bargain shopper (unlike myself) could not pass that up!

So, I am the proud owner of a pair of pants that I may come to hate in the next months since they may be the only ones I can wear after a little while! I'm so excited it will be wonderful!

Dreaming of a big tummy,
Kristen

You are terribly cute. Thanks for letting us share in your experience via online communications. We miss you. Take and send lots of pictures of the increasing belly. Being your first and that you're so tiny, you likely won't pop out for a while. You've easily got another 6 weeks I would say if not longer. Have so much fun w/ this experience. Don't ever feel silly about anything you do to relish in the joy of the gift GOd's given to you. We love you, are praying for you and cant' wait to meet baby Clemmer. :) (And where did you find H&M brand over there?)
