Hi Baby

It was so nice to just be able to get our news out this weekend and be able to celebrate! We have been blessed by many, sweet comments that friends and family have made. This is a little life! Definitely worth getting excited about!
My mom personalized this frame for me. It hold our first "picture" of the baby.

I often don't "feel" pregnant, but the nausea, food aversions and exhaustion remind me. I am a girl that likes to keep moving (and eating) constantly so it has be difficult for me to slow down a bit. I keep upsetting my stomach by eating too quickly or too much in the morning. I can't help it, I love breakfast foods! When I am taking care of myself and letting Christian take care of me I feel much better. I have even been able to keep up the exercise I enjoy like walking my neighborhood or riding my bike.

Every once and awhile I find myself talking to myself or the baby. Just to remind myself that he/she is there I say, "Hi baby." It has been a sweet time to realize that God has placed this little life inside of me. Even now I get the opportunity to care for this child and to pray for him or her.

This frame holds our little saying. "Night night big baby, night night little baby."
My mom has ministered to me and acknowledged this little life by telling me goodnight each evening by saying, "Night night big baby, night night little baby." I have always been and will always be my mom's big baby. When I told my little sister Maddie that I was expecting a baby; that I was going to be a mommy, she said pointing at my mom, "Silly goose! That's the mommy!" Its hard to belie
ve myself that I will be a mommy soon, but I am thankful for a wonderful mother that has always been the best role model to me in her ministry to her husband, her children and to all the other people God has placed in her life.

I have much to be thankful for!

Wednesdays are nice days for me in the middle of my week. I do not have classes with my program so it gives me a chance to write, to visit with friends and to catch up on assignments. Today, I am going to enjoy my first pumpkin bagel of the fall at Einsteins before I pick up Maddie from preschool. I am obsessed with everything pumpkin and of course I have an even greater adoration for my sisters! It should be a fun afternoon.Tonight, I am starting a book study at church with other newly married ladies and some mommies-to-be in the mix as well. I am really looking forward to all the Lord has to teach me in this new season of life. It is going to be good for me.

My Prayer for Baby Today
