24 Weeks. 6 Months!

I can't believe I'm in my 6th month!! Please excuse the wrinkles in my shirt. It is a very wrinkly material and these were taken after a VERY long work day.

My pregnancy is flying by. I mean, it’s going so fast that I can hardly even believe it. I was 8 weeks pregnant one day and then I went to sleep, woke up and was 24 weeks pregnant the next! The first few weeks of it dragged by so slow because I was just waiting to hit milestones. Now, I blink and I’m rolling over into a new week.


The closer I get to having him, the more my anxieties are disappearing and my excitement is increasing. Things that used to sound so terrifying and intimidating suddenly aren’t so scary anymore. I know that God is preparing me in every way, and this is just another example of his perfect preparation.


The more that I feel Levi kick and move, the more I feel a relationship with the little guy. He is absolutely precious to me. Sometimes, my heart starts racing because I get so excited at the thought of meeting him! I just can’t imagine what that will be like. What does a mixed Whitney & Hubsy look like? What does he act like? What will his demeanor be? His personality? I am so eager to discover all of these things.




I can not believe that in three and a half short months, little Levi will be here. A part of this world. In our arms. Wearing the little clothes I only imagine him in now. Reacting to the goofy voices and actions of his Mommy and Daddy. Laughing at his Daddy’s funny dances. Cooing as he falls asleep to Mommy’s lullabies. Discovering the world around him. Experiencing his first everything. There are SO many things that I am looking forward to.


This whole pregnancy thing is like a dream. I know that I am pregnant and I can feel Levi inside me, but the reality of him actually being here just seems so surreal.

  1. Well, I don't know if it's because I'm so tired or what, but I'm pretty sure the tears stinging my eyes are because of what you wrote & because I'm SO happy & excited for you guys.

  3. It will be amazing when you meet him. No one can explain to you how amazing it will be, but when it happens you will understand. I just could have never fathomed the depth of love I could have for a baby. Enjoy these last few months of nesting.

  15. I know how exciting pregnancy is since I have three. I hope that your enjoying your pregnancy a lot and it seems that you are. I hear women say that they hated being pregnant and I just don't understand that. I loved being pregnant and it is amazing how God created us to carry our own children and the bond that forms before we ever even see them.

    I am anxiously awaiting the day that you guys post pictures of Levi. I don't get around to commenting on all your posts but I am here reading!

    Ah...the baby-lust has begun: I babysit my cute toddler nieces and nephews two days a week and my fiance came with last weekend. We're not even married and already talking about babies!

  22. It still feels surreal AFTER the baby comes. You get home from the hospital and you're like, was I really there? Did that all just really happen? Did they really let me leave with a baby? OMG, I have a BABY!?!?!???!!

  27. Your pregnancy is flying by!! It seems like it was just a couple weeks ago you announced it! I wish mine would go by quicker. I still have a few more weeks until we find out the gender and I'm going crazy not knowing!

    And you have the cutest pregnant belly ever! (o:

  30. Congrats on hitting the six month mark! I hear the second trimester is the best as far as energy and daily functioning. Enjoy the next few months - your little blessing will be here before you know it! And I love the baby belly pictures! (If you have pictures throughout the pregnancy I'd love to see a slideshow of your belly progression!)

  39. I'm so glad you're enjoying your pregnancy. It is indeed a magical time.

    I also loved labor and delivery - so very exciting knowing you're about to meet your precious baby.

    And being a parent is grand as well! You have a lot to look forward to.

  40. You look wonderful..and I'm glad to see everything is going good with you lil' guy..can't wait to see pics of him! :)

  41. I can tell you that meeting your little guy is WAY better than you can even imagine (if you can believe that). It is obvious that you are going to be the best mommy, and I do not even know you.....but actually meeting your baby is seriously more awesome that you could ever dream. And you only have a short time left.....yay!!
