I just wonder what is going to happen the day we have to get rid of that special couch. I guess that will be the day that God will be telling me no more babies. Well at least that is what I hope. I am sure my couch has another 10 or 15 years left to be my companion during these last weeks of my pregnancies.

Now believe me I am really not trying to complain because I love it when my babies are born with a full head of hair. I just don't care for the discomfort during the time that I am having to experience this wonderful feeling. My first born had so much hair she looked like a Monchi Chi Doll when she was born. It must have been all that heartburn I had during her pregnancy. Hers was so bad that when I would drink water I would get it. That truly is no joke. One night when I was about 7 months along I thought I was going into labor and my dear mother explained to me that it was only heartburn. O.k. It was my first pregnancy so I didn't know what I was doing. So I am very curious to see this new little one's head. Will it be full of hair or bald like it's daddy?

Not much has been happening here lately. We are all getting very anxious for the new arrival and we are settling into a routine again. It always seems like summer just messes with our schedule. I told the girls we needed to work on getting back into some kind of schedule before baby comes. We all know that doesn't happen overnight so we are beginning now. I know it always makes for a better transition with new baby if there are very few interruptions in our daily life.
Daddy and I seem to be on a second honeymoon lately and I love it. He is so compassionate and makes me feel like a princess everyday. We were just talking yesterday about how we grow more in love with each other each year. Thank you God for orchestrating this marriage.
Nana and Papa will be coming back in about a week and a half. The girls are very excited and mommy will get to rest for the last month of the pregnancy. I really am blessed to have family that helps out as much as they do. Thanks Mom And Dad.
I guess that is it for now. And if something exciting happens I will try to blog about it.
See you all later.

The next day I started my next task which was bring all the clothes upstairs from the basement for the two little ones and getting their room organized. This also required me to go through my stuff because my husband and I were using the guest bedroom as our closet room. Well today I finished that task and everything looks pretty and in order and I even got rid of three bags of junk. Yeah!!
Tomorrow I am headed to the basement to the big girls clothes and get rid of some of their unnecessary things. I feel so energized it is actually a little scary since I still have a little over 7 weeks to go. Man if I can get all this done now can you imagine what I will be doing when I am really nesting. I can't wait.
Believe me I am not complaining I just can't believe I feel this good and I am going to keep getting as much done as I can while I feel like this.

Well onto the fellowship part of the day. That was wonderful. My husband is really starting to open up more to the families there and we all feel real relaxed and comfortable. It is a long drive so we are just praying and trying to figure out what God wants us to do in this situation. We are going to start with once a month and who knows God may move us to going there more often or he may close the door and move us someplace else. He knows where we are supposed to be we are just waiting and listening to Him.

God you knew what you were doing when you placed us together and I thank you for such a wonderful and Godly man. Sometimes I wish it wouldn't have taken me this long to figure out that you gave me the one that was meant just for me.

What a great week we have had. My husband's sister and her family came to visit us for a few days and we all had such a wonderful time. They live in Phoenix and lived there for part of the time that we did but we were never really close. God has mended a relationship that was broken mainly because of me. I had some things that I was not willing to forgive family members for and as I began to grow closer to God I knew I needed to forgive and seek forgiveness. This week was our time to physically be together and have that mending manifest itself in our relationship. There were lots of late nights, lots of tears, and lots of laughs. I am so thankful for a God who mends broken hearts. It all starts with that little thing called forgiveness.
They are now headed to Novia Scotia, Canada to start a new journey in their lives. I know that God will bless them and that our relationship with them will continue to Grow. I am so thankful I had the time to spend with them before they move and just let them know how much we love them and are thankful they are family.
