UPDATE: I’m happy to report that this blog post and my 20 weeks comparison picture of Grayson has been pinned 168,856 times on Pinterest! Thanks to everyone who thought this picture was worth pinning.
I think in my 26.5 years on this earth, this past year has definitely flown by faster than any other year. Since September of 2011, I’ve found out that I was pregnant, learned I was having a boy, turned 26, gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, flew to CA with my husband and son, and watched my little man grow up before my eyes. And today, Grayson is 20 weeks old! That’s 140 days! Or more precisely: 4 months, 2 weeks, and 3 days!
Since I have an ultrasound from when I was 20 weeks pregnant with him, I thought it would be fun to do a comparison: 20 weeks in my belly, and 20 weeks in the outside world.
If someone had told me, then, how much love and joy this little boy could bring into my life, I don’t know if I would have believed them. But I can tell you now that I have never felt a love like this before. I love my husband with all my heart, but there is just something so special about a mother’s love for her child. I would do anything for him! I look into his eyes and I can see how much he loves me, too, even though he can’t say it yet.
He has stolen my heart……and I don’t want it back. ♥
**UPDATE: Since this post is so popular, I thought I’d share my second son Oliver’s 20 week comparison here!
