Still here.

The baby ticker on my sidebar tells me I'm 32 weeks and 5 days today and boy, do I feel it! But as ready as I am to be not pregnant anymore, I feel so blessed to have made it this far with no complications of preterm labor! I'm farther along now than I was when Kristen was born, so I'm not feeling quite as scared as I was there for a while. Whatever happens now I can handle!

This month is passing by in such a whirlwind and even though I thought after my last post that I'd stay more caught up with this blog, it just isn't happening! Too many other fun things have been taking precedence, namely shopping and baking and sewing and caroling and celebrating and visiting with family members who are sadly now all home in distant cities. Hopefully now that the kids and I are on break from school I can post more specifically about what we've been doing. :)

For now, I'm off to bed! My Meggie will be four years old tomorrow and we have a fun day planned to celebrate sweet little wonderful her! I can't wait!

You look beautiful. I know you don't feel that way all the time, but you do look it!

Cherish it.

I may be at the end of baby having after giving birth to 13 out of 15. It is bittersweet. The season we are in we must embrace. I see that you do, and I also must. I must embrace the good and the difficult for the glory of God.

Melissa, you do look so beautiful! And I am thrilled things are going well so far. As a friend of mine was worrying during a previous pregnancy about something happening a second time and her midwife wisely shared with her, "Every pregnancy is different. So it may not happen again." I think this applies to you. Can't wait to hear all you've been up to.

Much love,

You look great, Melissa! Glad you are doing well!

I love seeing the belly shot. Can't wait to see your sweet little boy!! (But glad he's still happily there in your tummy while you enjoy advent fun and birthday fun.)

well aren't you pretty!
Stay close to Our Lady... she's about due too!
Can't wait to see that sweet babe in your arms!

Michelle said...

Happy Birthday to your sweet little girl. I'm pretty sure she was only 2 when I first found your blog. My, how time flies.
By the way, you look great.

Melissa, you look sooo beautiful!
You are the perfect picture of pregnancy!

Praying you make it all the way this time! *well, maybe 2 weeks early, huh?
