18 weeks here and babe is the size of a bell pepper. I'd like to go on the record saying that bell peppers are difficult to draw. Definitely not my favorite chalkboard week, but that's not what is important. I'm especially loving feeling the babe move more and more inside my womb. What a gift. He/she seems to really move after a good meal. Funny how that works. This mama is looking forward to discovering if this little one is a he or she at the end of the week. Can't wait!
My mom was kind enough to spend a day with me this week and help re-organize and deep clean. Moms are seriously the best. This little house of ours is really coming together as a home. I try to imagine it with a little one around, though I'm sure that image will become more realistic with time. Newborns are also a good excuse to slowly transition to a few more grown-up, *ahem* I mean, "baby proof" furniture items. It's a work in progress.
Pregnancy and birth continue to leave me in awe like never before- even though I'm surrounded by it day to day at work. It's truly an amazing process and such a blessing to be able to experience each and every day. This little life makes me stop and pray like never before. My faith and trust in God is challenged and deepening like never before.
Keep growing strong sweet little biscuit. Mama and Daddy look forward to seeing you on ultrasound this week! I'm hoping you give Dad quite the show as this will be his first time seeing you in action!
