Pregnancy is a strange in-between time. I’m a mother but not quite yet. I have all of these baby items around my house and no baby. There is a bed in my room that my baby has never slept in. I know how to calm a baby and different positions for breastfeeding, but I’ve never done any of these things. I can feel her moving and I’m always carrying her, but I’ve never seen her or held her in my arms. I can’t wait for her first breath and the moment that I become someone’s mom instead of a mom-to-be.
I asked Justin Pierre from Motion City Soundtrack to write out the lyrics from “It Had to be You” for me to get tattooed and this happened. PS he’s super sweet and totally amazing he even helped me pick out the lyrics as I was torn between two. <3
