Hold please - putting in my headphones and YouTubing, 'beautiful music' - I kid you not, this is how I start all of my blog posts. It puts me in a better head space ; )
Ok much better - now let's get this show on the road.
I still have to pinch myself from time to time to be honest. Our little Bubba Bear is coming into this world in July of 2019. It's been a long journey to say the least. We were on our 4th year of trying and were trying so hard not to lose hope. When I was 14 years old, I predicted that I would be married and have all of my kids at the age of 28. News flash - we don't have that much control do we and this Mama is 32! I feel a sense of new beginnings and although I don't think anyone is ever truly ready for kids, we are so ready and we won't take a second of it for granted. Sometimes I just lay in bed thinking about this baby's smile and who he or she is going to be in this world. God has provided so much for us and we are forever grateful. I'm amazed by his ability to bring so much love into our lives after we experienced the darkest moment of our entire lives.
So how does this change things? Well, my next album will have to be on hold for a while. We did some baby budgeting and.. dang gina! (Martin Lawrence reference to the younger peeps). But wowzers it sure is expensive to get ready for your first bubba. So for now, I will continue to write and record at home so that by the time I'm ready to hit the studio again, I'll have a ton of material. I'm also continuing piano lessons and songwriting for producers. This ATL producer keeps hiring me for songs and it's pretty awesome to say the least. I get to write music for a living?
So back to baby talk - I felt so much anxiety last night going into this morning - thoughts about how our baby is doing and nervous about every twinge I felt. Being pregnant is nerve wrecking but being pregnant with a rainbow baby is even more terrifying. I started a conversation with Baby Chugh and a few hours later, I felt and saw the first baby kicks! Er maybe they were punches or very cool dance moves. I knew it was our baby letting me know I have nothing to worry about.
Well that's all for now! I love you all and I hope you have an amazing day. Thanks for stopping by (says Veronica Corningstone).
Cheerios! (I don't know why I say this - but yes I do love me some honey nut cheerios)
