Tick tock...

I'm watching time pass quickly as my due date nears. I've been focusing on preparing myself physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually for the big event. Yes, all of these impact birth and birth impacts all of these areas. :)

I'm almost completely packed with things for labor, delivery and coming back home from the birthing center. I've been doing my prenatal yoga and walking (a lot), resting quite a bit inbetween getting things done, taking my vitamins, drinking lots of water and eating well. I'm also spending time with the Lord, my family and alone. I feel close to being ready and I'm beginning to feel a peace and a calm that can only come from the Lord.

Complications have come up, but I have faith that God will work it all out for good. I'm believing for a healthy and whole baby who is a delightful addition to our family. By the way, the car seat arrived on time.

There isn't a whole lot going on outside of preparing for the new baby. I did get two reviews written for my blog which I posted this morning. I have some more that I hope to get done and on here soon. I'm also hoping to post on my other blogs soon, but I'm really taking things one day at a time. The baby is very low and contractions abound which definitely has my focus.

One last bit of news: My hubby joined the blogging craze this past week and I'm enjoying the heck out of having another blogger in the family. It's fun to share similar activities. His blog is called 6 short of a dozen (click on his family category to find out why) and it's mostly about programming with Ruby and rails with some family posts mixed it.

I'll try to post again soon.

hi...you've got a really nice journal here. I really enjoy your candid way of writing.

I guess "Congratulations" will soon be in order - I'll be back to to read all about God's NEWEST blessing to your life.

May God's richest blessings be yours.

Hi Gina, I saw your comment on his blog. :) Nope, not much longer.

Thanks, Camy. I'm not 100% ready yet, but close enough. Thanks so much for the prayers. I'll let you know when she gets here.

Thanks for the prayers, Peggy. Maybe one day you will be able to meet her in person. You can bet I'll be sharing pictures though. :)

Can't wait to 'meet' the newest addition! So sad that she's the only one I won't know in person. :(
Praying that all goes well. It seems like the last time was just a year or so ago! Time flies...
