someday

as i look back at the photos of when my niece came to visit. we had such a blast playing with "aunt whitney's puter". i can not wait until the day arrives that my neice will have more cousins to play with. this continues to be a constant struggle for my mind, each and every month. most of the time i am on the fence and can be pushed one away or another. one where i see all those fellow bloggers announcing their babies and posting all these adorable pictures of them. we are ready for a family. but then i fall back the complete opposite way in where i want to wait because what if it does happen and my husband isn't here for it? if he will miss most of the pregnancy months or even months of the child's life due to being away for military reasons? how strong would i really be?


either way i know someday it will happen, if it's meant to be. i need to someone make my mind stop wondering and just enjoy each and every day i do have with him or be able to talk to him. live in those moments now, because i realize how quickly they can be taken away from us.

  1. I shared these EXACT hesitations a year ago. The tough thing about the military is nothing is ever sure-so we decided to stop putting things on hold for something that may/may not happen and trust in God's timing. Best choice we ever made!!

  4. Great post! The baby subject is a big topic in our household and everyone wants to know when we will pull the trigger. Its not a decision to be made on a whim!! But it is hard when everyone around you is starting families or adding to there current one! You feel like you are behind! Or atleast I do!!

  7. It's a tough decision. I def think you can't wait for the "right" moment. It will never happen. You just have to let the cards fall where they may. Also, you are strong enough to deal with having a baby with the military life style. Look how strong you are to get through all you have been already. Most of us don't know the amount of strength we have in us until we are tested. You would do amazing!!!!

  8. I have this exact debate in my head ALL the time. Hubs was away for Adri's first year, and it was tough, but it's manageable. Hopefully it will happen when the time is right for you.

  9. Great post! Though I'm pretty young and my husband has just started in the military, this is a topic we talk about quite often. Good luck with your decision :)
