16 Weeks

The weeks are flying!

But I still wake up every morning with a big smile on my face thinking about this baby- and feeling more beautiful than ever with this growing belly!

Continuing to feel great, but I've been battling a cold/allergies this weekend. Not being able to breathe isn't much fun when there's something else relying on you to fill their bodies with oxygen.

The books say that frequent urination will slow down in the second trimester. Well it's in overdrive here! I get up from peeing and already have to pee again!

I'm sitting on the couch after a long day at work- the cat snuggled next to me. I wonder how she's going to adjust to a new brother or sister. I hope she loves him/her. I hope she acts like this. Speaking of peeing, I hope Jupiter doesn't try to pee on the baby. I've heard of that, you know.

Continuing to pray for peace this week--and every week. Peace to know that Baby D is healthy and safe and just as God intends. We are the perfect parents for this perfect little boy or girl. Although I might not realize it yet, He knows it for sure.

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Pslam 139: 13-14

He knows my baby inside and out. He knows my heart as a mother before it is even revealed. He knows us and has given me the absolute perfect gift.


Guess what happened his weekend little one? Your dad graduated! Yup, he's a master now. And a real live librarian!

Here's a picture of the three of us. Doesn't daddy look so smart in his cap and gown?

You're going to grow up big and maybe you'll even go to college. You can go to a college or university, or a technical school, or culinary school. You could be a doctor, or a musician, or a mechanic. You might work outside the home, or you might work in the home. You might go abroad. Or maybe you'll stay close to us. 

We love you and will support your dreams wherever they take you!

Oh and baby D, I can't wait to hear all about your dreams. I can't wait to hear what you want to be when you grow up. And about the things you love to do. And the places you want to see.

And there sure is so much to see. Your daddy and I can't wait to be there with you, dreaming and scheming and planning for your big, bright future.
