I am due in 18 days, but for the last 3 weeks it has been a roller coaster of doctor appointments that let us know at each appt. we could have a baby "today". Getting psyched to bring a baby home multiple times a week will seriously throw you for an emotional loop.
I have avoided writing MUCH on the pregnancy and having a baby, but It is hard to avoid at this point. My belly is large, I sleep little, I have little feet kicking my ribs and pushing on my lungs...and while it has been a sweet, sweet season, I am so ready to meet this baby face to face.
|Our sweet child with a little hand over it's face.|
When I close my eyes and dream of the day baby gets here, I imagine my heart melting when Andrew tells me what the gender of our baby is. (I see us doing a laughing weeping sort of thing)
We cannot wait to tell our family and friends if we have a boy or a girl!
I think of the feeling of those little fingers wrapped around mine and I just cry.
I think of Andrew staring at the face of this sweet baby, holding it in his arms, sleeping with it on his chest, and I can hardly stand how precious the thought alone is.
I can't wait to watch him be a daddy.
I think a lot about how we will raise this baby and how to teach it about God's unfailing Love and Goodness.
I pray for wisdom and much discernment for Andrew and me.
I am so thankful for Andrew and his constant showing of love to me through his words and Actions, and how lucky this kid is to have him as a dad!
I can't believe that after what has been almost 6 years of waiting, that it is almost time to hold the little miracle.
I cannot wait to see our family and friends love our baby.
I am so thankful to the Lord for allowing us to have a child.
