And then it hit me...

I was sitting on the floor playing with Kyla tonight while Tyler is at his board meeting.  Kyla crawled over to me and laid her head on my lap.  And then it hit me...


A lot of people don't know this, but it took Tyler and I a long time to get pregnant with Kyla.  It's one of those things that people don't really talk about.  But I don't think it's anything to be ashamed of nor should it be something that's not socially acceptable to talk about.  I would never have blogged about it at the time we were trying because I would have felt pressure, like everyone would be sitting around waiting.  But now that she's here, she's healthy and we have the best life, I'm not afraid to share the fact that we waited a long time for her.  And said many prayers.

She is the best thing that has ever happened to me.  And I'm sure Tyler would say the same.  It's nights like tonight where I can't help but just smile at her and kiss her and tell her I love her.  I can't wait for her to be able to hug me and tell me that she loves me too!

Don't mind my sappy post.  I'm a mom!  I think that gives me the right to have moments like this, right?


  1. Oh my, you just made me cry!I know you and Tyler went through alot to get her and couldn't agree more that we are ALL so blessed to have her here. She is our little miracle baby and I love her so much along with my other 2 granddaughters.
    Love mom

  2. I get sappy over my daycare kids, I hate to think what I'll be like when they're my own!

  3. I can totally understand. We tried for 3 years to have Tatum and we have currently been trying for at least 3 years to have another. Be proud that you worked so hard for such a beautiful baby! She truly is a miracle. I hope when the time is right, the 2nd one will come easier. Good luck!

  4. Apparently you just had to wait in order to make sure you got the cutest baby, and that she is! ;-)


  5. I can't get over how sappy I am now that I'm a mommy! It is just crazy! Thanks for the follow! I'm following back now. You have a gorgeous daughter!
