hello boho baby...


16 weeks


19 weeks

Last week when we were visiting, me, Boho Boy and K snuggled on the couch and gazed at a handful of ultrasound photos she has kept for us. This was a pleasant surprise. I didn't expect to be able to see that many and to see him looking so real and tangible, well...you can imagine our hearts swelled.

I haven't yet had the opportunity I have always dreamed of. To lay on a table with my swelling belly and my hand holding Boho Boy's and us viewing the screen to say hello to our baby for the first time. Tears and smiles and laughter all at once. Those are moments you imagine over and over in your mind while trying to conceive.

Well, this was our moment...sitting on the couch, snuggled up to K's swelling belly and going through photo after photo. It wasn't what I had imagined would happen but to me, it felt so perfect. Because truly, looking back on my life, I have never been one to do things in a traditional manner. Neither has Boho Boy. So it is all very fitting for us.

Hello boho baby in there all snuggly and warm. I've been longing to hold you in my arms for so very long. We are grateful for this wee glimpse of you. It helps ease the ache.

what you say about doing things your way, doing life your way rings really true. ultrasound pictures are such an awesome thing, to visualize the inside of the womb. i had weekly ones due to the twins and it always was such an oddly comforting thing to 'see' them even when i could feel them. looking forward to the face to face meeting. just realized you are having a scorpio child, like me! just so you know, they really do rock.

i know i say this over and over but i truly believe with all my heart that God has plans for us and they aren't always "the plans" that we have in mind. i can't help but see His hand in this for the both of you. as you said it wasn't what you imagined but it is certainly what He has planned for you. with that said i also believe that there are still plans for you to have it happen the way you imagined it would. you with the swelling belly.
i'm so happy that the two of you, soon to be three, are having such an amazing experience and bonding with K & T. so much love.
thanks for sharing your joy.
he's beautiful. he is a Boho.

Boho Family,

What a joyous opportunity for you all and K & T. I love
these last three posts of yours. You sound like a woman about to have a baby. You might not know this but even when I have been the one who is about to birth my children I have needed the love, support, strength, reassurance and help of my family and friends. So in the other post where you say you still are utilizing the tribe, it just makes perfect sense. That is what we do when we are becoming parents.

Those ultrasound moments are so funny. To be able to see an image of your child. It is so surreal.

The kicking and moving...what a trip for your to experience that feeling. How exciting. It sounds like your son really is connecting with you. K must be doing lots of preparations with him that he knows where he will be going when it is time.

Love to you all,
Jen Diamond

Boho -

Don't give up on that dream. Alot of couples conceive after adoption when they're least expecting it. You never know? I love this post, just don't give up on that dream yet. If there's anything I've learned from my crazy life, it's that you can always expect the unexpected...

He's beautiful! :) Isn't it amazing of the things we dream about and the way life ends up taking place. I know my dreams have been so much different than my reality at times....and yet....we learn to be okay with it. And when we open up to this change, I think sometimes we end up experiencing something far more beautiful than what we were dreaming about. :)
I'm so excited for you....and can't wait for you to meet him. :)
