I am having a contest (you may have seen it on Facebook-if you guess here and there, I will include both of your guesses in the running :). Whoever has the closest guess of sex, weight and length, I will send you a prize! So much fun, right?!?!
Okay, so maybe not SO much :) But something for me to browse through while I pass the time. C'mon baby.... let's get this party started!
Well, tomorrow's the day. I was so sure I would have this baby this last week. I had my membranes stripped twice (ummm-OUCH!), tried every natural-make-yourself-go-into-labor suggestion out there and.... nothing. I have cried several times this last week. I just have wanted to be done. I mean,really. Just done. It is surreal to me that I am really going to be having the baby tomorrow. I go into the hospital at 5:30 AM pending they have room for me. If they don't I will go in and wait until they do. I have had it! Put your last minute guesses in. Once I post the info, any guesses are invalid... :)
I'm havin' a baby! FINALLY! Woo-hoo!

You know how you just get that longing? That feeling that you NEED to get away, and soon. Or at least have something to look forward to? That's what I want. Something to look forward to. And there is nothing. Except 6-8 loooong months of nursing and having a baby attatched to me, getting kids ready every morning for school, packing lunches, driving children to various extra-curricular activities, grocery shopping, laundry (oh my goodness, the laundry!), cleaning, dishes, planning dinners and preparing them, and I'm sure there is a lot more that I just don't want to think about right now.
Now, don't get me wrong. I adore my life. I love taking care of my family. It gives me so much joy and happiness and I just love my calling as a wife and mother.
Sometimes.... you just need a break, you know? *sigh*
I think I'll feel differently once this babe is born because there is no way I will want to leave him/her for any length of time of course.... but still.
I want a getaway. Someone tell my husband. Our 9th anniversery will be next June. Perfect timing :)
Mom....are you available?

I am loving this song. Christian Rock is really big out here and there are a ton of radio stations that play great, uplifting music with wonderful messages. I love music and think it can be a very powerful thing. My hubby shared this song with me a little bit ago and every time I hear it, I can't help but cry. I know I say this quite a lot....but I am so in love with my husband. He is always willing to do anything to become a better person and I am so grateful for such an amazing, worthy, humble man to call mine. He is a wonderful father to our children and always trying to be better than he is. I am always looking up to him and oh boy.... I sure do love him :)
I hope you enjoy!
