still waiting...

Monday, June 23, 2008

I'm being sentimental about pregnancy, at this point.  It's surprising to me, but I have really enjoyed this past week and I haven't been in a hurry to deliver.  I think its setting in how much work this newborn will be (I must have blocked it out until now).  
I'll miss seeing the girls resting their heads on my stomach and seeing them talk to baby.  But we are all excited about meeting her in person, of course!
I have been having good talks with our oldest child today...trying to convince her that she will love being my little helper.  She was fascinated by the fact that she is the same age that I was when my little sister was born.  I told her that I was a great help to my mom...some truth to that, I think (no doubt I've been using subtle manipulation...I'm aware).

black-eyed beauty

Friday, June 20, 2008

She stumbled on a playground a few nights ago...and got a nice black-eye.  Its in the flattering "3 color" stage right now.  We are prone to eye injuries in this family.  I can't explain it but the only 2 ER visits we have needed were eye injuries.  Luckily this incident looks worse than it really was.  She seems kind of proud of it.  When asked what happened to her - Dad likes to make the comment, "You should see the other kid."  

baby shower

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

I enjoyed a wonderful baby shower tonight at La Madeleine.  My fellow pastors' wives organized a fun ladies night out.  I was overwhelmed!  Adam and I felt incredibly blessed and it's official...we are ready.  I was so excited to receive plenty of diapers and wipes!  Packs of diapers, as a gift, is incredibly more exciting with the third baby than with the first.
Most of all, if was wonderful gathering with loving family and friends.  I can't wait to meet our little girl and pass her around to all of these dear ladies.

Barie and I had to have an updated prego shot (a little different from back in February).   We are due a week apart.  I have enjoyed sharing with her the joys and trials of expecting, this time around.

nursery pics

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

We are done working on the nursery for now.  I had fun with this room, making up one more nursery.  Each of the baby girls' rooms have looked totally different.  I couldn't do an all pink room we tried aqua with a little pink this time.  (Click on the pic below to enlarge).
Here is my craft project - a butterfly mobile.  It's made from a photo mobile.  I took the clips off, added ribbon and paper butterflies cut from a die-cut.  I love how it looks from baby's perspective.
My mother-in-law, Karan, completed a gorgeous baby quilt.  I love it!
Adam and I are really tired these days.  We have been running around trying to tie up loose ends, knowing we will be out of our routine for awhile.  It has been fun seeing friends and planning some special time with people before this little newborn shakes things up.
We are feeling more ready...bag is packed, Mom's in town again, and this baby is growing big!

family update

Friday, June 6, 2008

I don't think life will slow down any time soon, and I had some crazy thought that it could this month.  We are due to have this baby is less than 3 weeks now.  I have a mile long list of things I'm trying to do to get ready...and I'm starting to wonder if I can accomplish it all.  At this stage, the pregnancy seems like it has gone by fast and I am getting a little sentimental about it.  But I live in a constant state of contradiction...because I'm very uncomfortable and the 100 degree heat is now a part of life.  
Lately, we have celebrated Adam's parents' birthdays, finished the nursery/house projects, started leading a small group at church, and all on top of the regular fast pace.  I visit the doctor's office once a week now and we had a good report last week.  During a sonogram, they measured the baby's leg and asked, "is Dad tall?"  They took one look at me and knew I couldn't get credit for her long leg measurement.  
That's all I have to report.  This post is as scatter-brained as my life right now.  I think I'll take a nap.
