Just recently, Staci and Brandon Goodman’s daughter, Graylen won my “Precious Baby Contest” on Facebook. Their prize was an 8×10 painting of the photo that was submitted. I asked Staci for her story – pre-pregancy, pregnancy, and life now with their precious daughter. Here it is –
Pretty crazy thoughts went through my head, but I didn’t care…I was FINALLY going to be a mommy to a precious baby girl, someone I had been praying for for years. I was just reminded of God’s faithfulness, how He keeps his promises and He truly granted us the desires of our hearts. I had a super easy pregnancy, really. The only symptom I had was in the first trimester, I was super sleepy. I would have killed you for a candy apple. And, heartburn is the devil. And so is gaining 28 pounds. It’s crazy too how no one tells you about postpartum. I cried a lot. LOL. She was just so tiny and I loved her so much, but that didn’t last that long.
She has made me such a better person. I adore our cuddles, her giggles with her daddy, her playing with our golden retriever, our cool whip painting play times….everything! She has completely changed our life and I honestly can’t wait for more. But, my husband might battle me on that!
