A to Z - Motherhood

The sound swirls in my ears, pshew, pshew, pshew, pshew. A grin plasters my face.  I gaze at the monitor as a tiny heartbeat confirms the life cradled in my belly. My husband’s hand covers mine and I look into his sparkling eyes. Is it a boy?  Is it a girl?  Who cares, our baby is perfect and healthy.  Pure magic, wonderful peace. We are now mother and father…we are family.

  2. My baby will be twenty six so it has been a lot of years but those are the times I won't forget. I now have grand kiddies and was with my daughter when my grand son was born. It was truly amazing.

  4. Beautiful post, Millie! So amazing! My daughter (and first) was born in 1980. I had no sonogram. My middle child, son, was born in 1982. I had a sonogram. It was a BIG deal. My baby (son) was born in 1986, and it was pretty much standard procedure. How times change. Everything about becoming a mom is magical... Excellent choice for "M". -)
