Happy December! Baby month!

Well it's here, the month that we will be welcoming our baby girl into the world! She could be here as soon as 2 weeks from now, so my wish for having here by Christmas will more than likely come true! I have so many different emotions that I experience on a daily basis about here arrival! Her room is coming along, we are just waiting for her crib and changing table (which a very sweet lady from our church is donating to us!) and we are on the search to find a dresser. 
Since I have been on bed rest I have had moments of panic, or worrying about silly things and the devil as really tried to get into my mind that something will go wrong at delivery time either with me or the baby. I think one of the main reasons why my mind plays into these lies is because we are so used to things related to our babies going horribly wrong. I just keep reminding myself that my God is bigger than the devil and all my worries! So I am trying to focus on holding my baby and bringing her home with us, the positive and good things I should be focusing on! That darn devil is just trying to steal my joy! We have an ultrasound on Thursday and I'm excited to see how much she weighs now. Starting next week we will have an appointment every week and we have been told that we should just expect to come to an appointment and then they tell us that today is the day! So we will still have the element of surprise of when her Birthday will be. We are just praying that nothing is rushed, or nothing is emergency about her delivery. We are hoping for a smooth and joyous experience! 
On a daily basis we lift our worries and concerns up to God, we leave that day in his hands and are confident that things will go smoothly and that we will be holding her in no time! I am so thankful for a husband who stays calm and knows how to calm me down in my moments of panic and worry. 
We are SO looking forward to welcoming our baby girl into this world and finally experiencing parenthood after starting this journey over 2 years ago with Maggie Grace we feel like it is about time! 
Thank you to all those who have cried with us, prayed with us, and walked with us through this journey to parent hood the past 2 years! We appreciate all the prayers and we would appreciate for them to continue as the day of her arrival approaches! 


I finished my devotional about Hope a week ago.
I take this as a sign of good things to come. Looking forward to saying
goodbye to a time of grief and hello to a time of joy!
