A New Year

Not only is this a new year but it is about to be the beginning of a new chapter in our family. Today, I am at 30 weeks. That means we have 10 weeks or less to go before Margie is here. In the last few weeks, we have been busy cleaning out closets, moving furniture, and decorating the nursery. Every morning I peer into her room thinking that one day very soon I will look in to see her laying their in her crib with a smile on her face saying good morning in her own special way. My arms long to hold her and my heart aches to show her how much I love her. The next 7o days will fly bye. Before we know it we will be bringing home our little girl. Our prayer is that the Lord will safely see her to this side of heaven. Once she is here, we pray that God gives us what we need to raise her as His child.

I love watching someone else at the same points I am. I can't walk in the nursery (that had been my studio...sigh) and all it needs is a few hours to make it right, however a few hours would spike my BP so I am not encouraged to do it and no one else can do it the way I want. ABout the week before I am scheduled I will melt down and someone will let me tell them how to do it. Then again around next 34 weeks (I am 30 also) I will start to panic b/c that is when my twins put me in the hospital so that is when I think I should be ready by. Enjoy the time with her inside...even the uncomfortable parts, you forget just how amazing it is until you do it again...and then forget. I am trying to really remember since this is it for me. Ted, explain to your wife that I am not insane...or mostly not. I am so excited for both of you, I know in my soul how great Ted will be as a dad, and I am sure that since he picked you Shana you will be amazing too.

How exciting, Shana! I remember those days so well. We are so happy for you and will be keeping you and your family in our prayers.
