It feels like I've been pregnant forever. Becoming more & more anxious to meet our little one! Only twelve weeks to go! 👏 #babyboden1 #babybump #thirdtrimester I was writing a letter to our little one this week & as I went to sign my name realized I could write 'mom' instead. I get to be a a daughter! How surreal. I pray for that special mother-daughter bond like I have with my own. Already dreaming of all the adventures we will have together! 💕 #babyboden1 #babybump Happy Birthday to me. 🎈🍦#celebrate #jenisicecream
