well peeps

we’re pushing 37 weeks.

yes only 37 weeks. (and WOOHOO! THIRTY SEVEN WEEKS!!!!!!)

how do i feel this way when the numbers say 37 weeks?

they should say 40. (but i’m so SO thankful they don’t say 30)


sometimes, when walking by the mirror,

i glance over and say,

“oh shucks!

yep, it’s not right.

it will be a bit longer.”

(cuz my belly changes shape and looks funny at the very very end)

and then there are those times (like yesterday)

where there is no other way to walk but waddle because i feel like there is a ball between my thighs and i must master walking and holding the ball there. AND my belly is funny shaped.



yes the baby has dropped.

and “popped” back up.

and dropped.

and well you get the point.

how about i close this post with saying.

i’m losing sight of reality here.

enjoying this week

life will soon change forever.

lizzie senses it.

we know it.


car rides/trips will soon become a very very big deal instead of quick jots here and there.

sleepless nights will be because of a living being in my arms, thriving from nutrients from me.

not just aches and pains from squirms and wiggles.


i am so thankful for all who loved on me. the blessingway today was just that, a blessing.

thank you for each of your uplifting and encouraging spirits. the laughs and fellowship was so fun!

why don’t we do that more often?

this week, enjoyed having babies in the house – caused me to see why it is still handier for this peanut to chill inside just a bit longer… and why i so desperately want this BIG peanut ‘earth side’. (please, oh please, babe! not much longer…)

no matter, i’ve surrendered to God, to my body, to nature.

it’s not my time we are living off of.

it’s borrowed.

managed by One much wiser than i.

i know i am nearer to the end than i was yesterday or the day before…

i am so thankful for that.

i’m doing my best at waiting well

yet, i don’t believe begging God to not make us wait much longer is not waiting well.


or am i just doing what i do best, justifying???

please, LORD, not much longer. please!!!! this i pray knowing full well, You are in complete control and i’m just a peabrain who can only see 2 inches in front of herself. i’m thankful i can’t see the full picture, i know i can’t handle it. i know that You’ve created this process perfectly and Your works are wonderful and i pick Your way not mine.

ok now that’s all said. here’s a perspective.

according to our dates and calculations. i’m approx. 35 weeks pregnant. i’m currently not convinced. thinking (and praying) i’m farther along.

last time with lizzie (please ignore it’s horrible picture quality and how pathetic i look)

(42 weeks pregnant, lizzie 7lbs 14oz)

this is my absolute favorite cocoon to date!

it’s made out of 100% organic dyed cotton and of course, it’s my favorite favorite yarn too. it feels amazing. it’s not just that it’s soft, it’s the way it moves and such…

can’t wait to get this lil bean in it!!!!!

i was going to add in purple after the baby is born, if it’s a girl… but now i’m seriously thinking i just need to knit another one with purple added into this pattern. i’m lower on white than green and brown so a lot of the bulk white would be purple. oh what to do! what to do!!! 🙂
