Today I’m giddy to let Heather from Finding Beauty in the Ordinary share with you about her new journey through pregnancy and motherhood. She’s a real sweetie, so be sure you visit her blog and leave her some good ole comment lovin’.
Hi! My name is Heather and I blog over at Finding Beauty in the Ordinary. The real heart behind my blog is to find beauty in all of life’s moments— the ordinary and the extraordinary ones– and document them. I love to share what’s on my heart and what God is teaching me. I love to share some recipes, document glimpses of our new life in Arizona, also share the adventures of being new homeowners, and most excitingly, soon-to-be new parents!
What have you found to be beautiful through your pregnancy? Has anything surprised you about being pregnant?
Oh man! Everything! Pregnancy is an absolutely beautiful experience. Even all that morning sickness, goodness, I would do it all over again. I love feeling her move and kick inside me. I love how she reacts to cold drinks and loud music. I love planning her nursery, daydreaming about what she’ll look like, all of it. I think the biggest thing that has surprised me about pregnancy is the horrible heartburn I’ve had– why did no one warn me?!
What excites you about motherhood? What are you looking forward to?
I know I sound redundant, but everything excites me. Even the sleepless nights and dirty diapers. I’m so excited to take her camping, on evening walks, and trips back home to San Diego. I’m looking forward to all those milestones, but especially watching her become a daddy’s girl, because we all know she’ll be wrapped around Joshua’s finger 🙂
What is the best pregnancy and/or parenting advice you’ve received?
Regarding both pregnancy and parenting– it would be to just enjoy the moment and be present.
Thank you so much for having me here! I’d love to have ya’ll stop by my blog and visit me sometime. God bless! xoxo Heather
