:)

ok, so I am still waiting for my babe....yeah its getting harder everyday. :( I am now 4 days overdue. Everyday I wake up thinking it is going to be the day, and when it is not I get kind of emotional. (I thank God for such a positive husband.)...but in the mean time I have been trying to keep myself busy. I am not much of a baker, but in the past week I have made a whole lot of cookies that I froze to save for my birth team, banana bread, and today I am baking a cake for my friends birthday. I started a few new sewing projects, finished reading a couple of books, went on plenty of walks for it has been so beautiful outside...I love the fall!...humm...what else can I do? I am actually getting bored!!..that never happens. :) So I thought for today I would just share a verse I came across that I keep coming back to this week. Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

Galations 6:4-5 (The Message)
"Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don't be impressed with yourself. Don't compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life."

Steph-

On my blog I have listed my blogger friends and under their names is how long ago their blogs were updated. I keep checking back to see when yours was :D when I saw 36 minutes I thought for sure I would find about about baby.

But, it really does sound like although this is a hard and emotional time, it is time you can take for yourself, which probably won't be too much when baby comes. I think that it is God's way of blessing you to find out more about him and to relax before your life changes- for the better of course. What a neat thing to do to bake for your team- that is really sweet.

So, I hope and pray that although you long to meet your child ( I honestly can't fathom the joy of feeling that! How exciting!!) that you can enjoy this time of preparation and that you are blessed by our Lord.

Can't wait to see baby though! Enjoy your next few days and I will still pray that baby comes soon!

Hang in there! If it helps, remind yourself that the "due date system" as we know it is flawed and there is no such thing as a "due date". There is a nice range of dates that the baby MIGHT come out :) Ha.

Oh, and go to Target. That's the thing I wished I would have done BEFORE Bella was born. All by myself with no screaming baby. :)

It will be soon!
