Baby Kowalski | Tears of Joy

Last week, Laurie and I announced our pregnancy and we still cannot believe it! After seven long years of trying our prayers have finally been answered and our dreams are coming true. About 10 weeks ago while Laurie and I were on a Queensland holiday, she walked out of the bathroom crying, I went to comfort her because I didn’t know what was wrong, she mumbled something and I had to ask her to repeat what she had said. She said “Im pregnant”…..With tears streaming down her face I held her close, really close! I too started to cry and we said a prayer and thanked our Heavenly Father for the beautiful blessing of a baby. I will never forget that moment, it’s what I call a momentous occasion! Every day now feels the same, for me it consists of working, waiting and helping Laurie. For her, however, it consists of feeling nauseous, vomiting, eating and vomiting again. I guess reality hasn’t really struck me yet, but it definitely has for her! As she takes it day by day (some good and others bad), I cannot help but feel so proud of her, I love her more every day. Knowing that she is carrying our baby…..She is my hero. We have now been married for over 7 years. We have not always had it easy, there have been good times and there have been bad times, but if it was all for this moment, right here, right now (what we have together and the blessings that await us) then it has definitely been worth it. This is why I have decided to Blog my wife’s pregnancy journey through the eyes of a Husband. On Monday, Laurie and I shared some time with our family and friends as we celebrated our niece Ashleigh’s 4th Birthday Party. Laurie was glowing and I thought I would take some photographs to capture the moment. If Laurie is as good at being a mum as she is an AIMG_0275Ashley Birthday-2Ashley Birthday-5Ashley Birthday-3laurie411Ashley Birthday-20Ashley Birthday-7Ashley Birthday-8laurie811Ashley Birthday-15laurie10psdAshley Birthday-10Ashley Birthday-16Ashley Birthday-18Ashley Birthdayunty then I know our child will be extremely loved.
