I celebrate knowing that there's a life inside of me that I'm responsible for. It's the biggest responsibility of my life and I am both scared and excited to be starting this journey. So far it's been really great and I have no complaints - in fact I feel like being pregnant has really brought me out of being completely self-involved. I'm still me but I want to make sure that everything I do now is helping my baby be the best she can be. I want to be a mom who's fun but firm and I want my daughter to know that no matter what I'll always be there for every question and concern. I'm really grateful that this baby is a part of me and Moses. He is just the best person in the world and the thought that she is part of both of us is what gets me through everything. It's what got me through this horror show of an election. It's like: Donald Trump might be president but I'm giving birth to an actual amazing person and I know that she's going to be amazing because she's part me, part Moses. That sounds so conceited but I just know she's going to be great. And not just looks wise. I feel like he and I really complete each other and now that's all coming together in one person. That just makes me so happy. Just knowing that the good thing that's going to come out of this is that she is going to be born and that we get a chance to guide her into becoming a really awesome woman.
