Pumpkin


I'm feeling pretty good. Still some restless nights, but I think that comes with the shape of things right now. I was supposed to be my midwife's only Mom due this month, but she still has a Mom two weeks late and I am really praying that she has her baby, like, today so that I can feel a bit more at ease here.





My instinct is that it is not going to be today or tomorrow for me. And I am constantly rubbing and assuring this sweet baby that I only want her to come when she is good and ready.


Carter is getting impatient. He can't wait to see how cute she will look. And he said Mommy, do you think she'll have a face like an angel?

Oh my, I can't wait (but I will wait) to see.


Belly 39 weeks

  2. Carter is a wise little boy. Of course she will!

    And good for you on your patience. I know it's hard to wait, but it's also hard losing that beautiful belly. Enjoy these last moments. XOXO

  9. I like that you tell her to come when she is ready. So sweet and selfless since I would imagine you're getting a wee bit tired of being pregnant by now.

  10. You wear your baby bellies so well!

    Your kids are all so much their own, I can't wait to see what she looks like, but I'm sure Carter has it pegged!

  12. You should let Carter smear orange finger paint all over your belly and take a picture. Wouldn't that be fun? Or is it just my warped mind that would find that fun?

    Well, you look fantastic. You have a great attitude, too.

    I once read that girls like to cook a little longer than boys. Who knows why?

  25. Love that pumpkin belly! I am very impressed with your patience, but Mama's always know when it's almost time. I knew on Monday that I could not and would not be pregnant one more day. It's great how God gives us that little bit of knowledge to get us through.
    Can't wait to meet your sweet girl!

  43. Those last few days/weeks are always tough with anticipating the new one's arrival but wanting them to wait until they are good and ready to greet the world.

    I'm sure she will have the face of an angel.
