There's just something about your first time experience at any new activity that makes it a bit nerve-wracking, very exciting and quite an adventure. Preparing for the addition of a little angel can often be summed up in just this way, as new parents often find themselves learning from each experience and every new day they face as Mom and Dad.
We think the excitement of the adventure of parenthood is one of the best things anyone could embark upon, and we're thrilled to introduce you to another sweet couple who is expecting a baby in the very near future. Sonja and her husband can't wait to welcome their little miss into the world, and begin their very own parenting journey!
IBB: What is your favorite part of being pregnant?
SC: Probably all of the thoughtfulness from everyone – doing nice things for me, and telling me to sit down, rest, etc. Also – maternity jeans! Hidden stretchy fabric at the waist...why don’t we wear these all the time??
IBB: What is the best piece of advice you have received so far?
SC: Someone told me not to be anxious about feeling clueless in the beginning, because you’re the only mom your baby’s ever had too... we’re both “first-timers.”
IBB: What is your favorite childhood memory?
SC: Gosh that’s a hard one to pick... but our family’s Christmas traditions, especially on Christmas Eve, really were a highlight of my year when I was a kid. I don’t think you can underestimate the value of the sense of security that family traditions can bring to children. I can’t wait to establish some traditions for our little girl to look forward to every year, too.
IBB: What is your most favorite item on your registry?
SC: I love it all!! But I especially love the super soft gray Little Giraffe lovey with the satin trim.
IBB: What aspect of motherhood do you most look forward to?
SC: I can’t wait for those day to day conversations with her, helping her learn how to process and see the world around her. I’ve been thinking a lot about the huge privilege of raising a brand new person with the values I consider necessary to help make the world a better place. How cool is that?
We wish this family all the best, and know they will do a great job of nurturing and caring for their sweet girl. Congratulations again, you two!
