Growing Up...

Ask me how the past 7 months have been and I'll possibly tell you that it's been the best experience of my life. While no doubt that is true, it's also been a huge wake up call for me. In the past 7 months I have learned that I was going to become a mother, I have moved out of my parents' house, and I moved into a house of my own with my boyfriend so we could start our own family. I basically done a complete 360 from the careless teenager to the adult who wants to do nothing but provide the best for her unborn son. It's been a tough lesson but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I am completely happy with how things are turning out. I won't lie, I wish I was married and older when I got pregnant BUT konnor was not and never will be a regret or mistake to me or our family. I am so in love with my son and he isn't even here yet. I am so blessed that God trusts me with this perfect blessing and I will fight to provide every possible thing for Konnor.
I love where I have ended up but I never imagined how difficult being an adult was. Me and Justin both have been working long hours to pay out bills, pay our house payment and buy the best stuff for Konnor. There is days where I come home from work with tears in my eyes because the 12 hour shifts while being 6 and a half months pregnant is tough but I remember the handsome blessing I am doing this for and it makes it all worth it. Thankfully, me and Justin both have Saturdays off so we can relax together and enjoy out time together. I couldn't be more thankful to have someone so supportive beside me my entire pregnancy.
Although growing up is tough, I am so glad I have wonderful supportive parents that pick me up when it all gets tough, a boyfriend that has been nothing but amazing thru it all and still never fails to make me smile and be do glad that I am experiencing this all with him and a beautiful baby boy kicking me from the inside to remind me that I love him and I know he loves his mommy too :)
