We Are Half Way There

Hooray! Today, I am at twenty weeks--meaning that we are at the half-way point until this cute little baby boy gets to finally come out for his big reveal. All morning I have been humming Bon Jovi's, "Living On A Prayer." You can totally tell that I am a child of the eighties and that I am showing my age. But this particular song is very relevant to where I am at in my pregnancy since there is a part of the chorus that goes, "We are half way there, living on a prayer. Take my hand and we'll make it I swear, living on a prayer." As I have struggled with constant nausea, vomiting, tiredness, and all the other fun things that goes with pregnancy, I can't help but celebrate that we are at the half-way point.

Every single night I have crazy pregnant dreams where Liam, Bill, and baby boy are the main players in my dreams. It makes me more excited for the reality of us to go from a family of three to a family of four. I love this little baby boy so much and I can hardly wait to see what he is going to look like. Is he going to be fair like Liam and look like the Fullmer's? Or will he surprise us all and be brown like me and take after my family?

Its like having a Christmas present sitting in your lap that you have to wait twenty more weeks to open to see the amazing contents! I am DYING to meet him and love him up with lots of cuddles, kisses, and snuggles. However, as the reality sets in that we have twenty more weeks to go, I content myself with singing at the top of my lungs with Jon Bon Jovi as his music is blaring in the background, " Baby, we'll make it I swear! Ooh living on a prayer, take my hand we'll make it I swear, ooh living on a prayer."

Because we are half-way there to the point where we get to meet each other and finally see the contents of this amazing gift that is sitting in my lap growing bigger and stronger by the day. I can HARDLY wait!! It makes me giddy like a Bon Jovi roadie just thinking about it!
