I am constantly amazed of the miracle that is my son. I remember when we were still in the hospital I would hold him and just stare at him. I could stay that way all day just sitting and staring at him. As he grows and matures I am still in awe of him. Each new milestone is as amazing as the last.
One day I was sitting on the floor with Nathan just watching him. And while I'm in no hurry for him to grow up, I wondered what will he be like as he gets older. What will I be like? Will I still be proud of all of his accomplishments?
Then I started to wonder if all other moms are like me. Did Hitler's mom play with him on the floor when he was a baby? Was she as fascinated with his growth and development as I am with Nathan's? Did Hitler Senior ever come home to find his wife blowing raspberries to baby Hitler?
Then those thoughts make me start to worry, what if my son grows up to be evil & homicidal? So now when I see a criminal on t.v. it makes me sad knowing that s/he started out as an innocent child. And I wonder if his mom stared at him in complete awe.
I first started this blog to record my thoughts during my first pregnancy in 2008. That's when I first became the "Pregnant Yuppy". Then after suffering a miscarriage and subsequent infertility this blog became my outlet to vent my frustrations while TTC as well as a place to connect with others who were having difficulty conceiving or who have also experienced a loss.
In March of 2010 we underwent IVF (in-vitro fertilization) that resulted in a successful pregnancy. In December 2010 our gorgeous son Nathan was born. And thus I became the "Yuppy Mom".
This journey has been long and I've learned a lot along the way.
