I just thought I'd post a quick update. I'm probably going to be slacking in my blog duties here soon (although I may overload blogger with pictures so we'll see!). I am 40 weeks +4 today so hopefully this kiddo will get here soon. I have a doctor appointment in an hour and a half so we'll see what she says! Some random thoughts...
- I am SO not a good secret keeper. I cannot wait to share this kid's name!
- I am re-thinking how I pray for my daughters. I usually pray for safety and security...all those good mom things, but I was thinking about things like "to know and love the Lord"...I want them to LOVE Him - really love Him, not just tell me they do. I want them to be usable for His kingdom and I know that doesn't always mean safety and security. I think I have to let go a little so that He can do His thing without my interference.
- I am ready to work on a new life schedule. Of course for the next six weeks until we get in a baby routine it won't really matter but I'm thinking including things like "plan meals" and "work out" would be a positive step for me and our family.
- I finished my sewing project! I made a hair wrap towel for one of my big kids, super pumped about that. I told her we were going to call it a practice run since I mis-marked the inside of it and it's not the greatest quality towel but it should work for now. AND I finished up hooded towels for Stephanie's kids...again, a learning process and not great quality towels but should work for awhile and I'll make them better ones next time I see wonderful fluffy towels on sale!
I'll try to keep you posted on this kiddo being born, but Facebook is probably going to be the best bet there! :)
