First Time Baby Talk!!??!!
- Let me start off by saying Aaron has some family members in town! We met with everyone last night & had a Low Country Boil to catch up. His cousin, Ashley brought her two little girls!
We have one of those mini blow up jump things... Geez, I don't know what they are called. Anyway, I saw Aaron walking toward it as his cousin Garrett's little girl Mady was in there jumping around, playing basketball... I asked him why he was grinning? He responded with, " I'm gonna go in there and just lay down." Garrett and Aaron were both wearing black t-shirts! When he went in there... I heard "Daddy watch me!" Instantly, I smiled from ear to ear and got butterflies!
No, I am not ready for children, however it was really cool to hear it! Especially now that we are engaged. I don't know why that makes a difference, but it made it more real, I guess I don't know really.
Aaron looked right at me and smiled!
Sounded weird, didn't it? - He grinned again, and started playing with her!
[We are now back at our house]
Aaron is going camping/fishing with the guys this Saturday night, therefore he has been getting all this fishing stuff together for the past couple of nights. As he had it spread out on the floor, dealing with all that... I started on my Thank You Cards on the Cricut Machine. We were having a wonderful conversation talking about anything and everything. Randomly he said,
"It was pretty strange to hear Mady call me Daddy!"
"It was, but I think she thought you were Garrett..."
"Yeah, I know... It was just weird."
"I'd like to get pregnant & have a kid by next year."
"Yeah, I think it's time..."
"Honey... Well.... [Speechless]"
"Well, I'd like to at least be married for a year or maybe even start trying LATE next year.... But actually popping a baby out next year... kinda freaks me out."
"Well if not next year, definitely the year after!"
-This seems so crazy to me! I always thought I'd be way ready before him. I mean geez, look how long it took to get him to pop the question. I thought it would be a few years before him ever saying that. AND a year ago, I was saying "If we were married, I'd be ready to have a baby"... However now that we are engaged and ready to wed, KNOWING we're getting married in 7 months and the next step is baby.... I don't think I'm 110% ready. NOT that it would be the end of my world, because it would not by no means!
Aaron just blew my mind out of the ball park last night!
He's ready to be called Daddy! That actually is pretty awesome!
The picture below melts my heart to pieces....
