Well we made it to the HALFWAY mark! Every time I feel our sweet baby kick, I smile. Which is a great thing....the last couple weeks have been a little rocky around here for me physically. I have also really struggled with worry, fear and discouragement. God is good ALL the time, and I can definitely say that I have been worse. I'm really trying to enjoy this last pregnancy, soak in all the happy times, and trust in God to take care of my family. God has reminded me over and over again how blessed we are. How He always takes care of His children, and that HIS plans are best. Those little kicks are a constant reminder to me of how amazing He is.
"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you."
I have my "big" ultrasound in two weeks....I can't wait to see our little guy in detail! Of course I will update with pictures!!!
We are excited about preparing for our sweet little boy. Here is a little collage of a few of my favorite things....
My Girls // Summer is hard. It's hot, we are bored, and I can only do so much physically. Sometimes I feel guilty that I can't be "super mom" (or even normal mom) to them, but they know that I love them and that's what matters! I have watched them adapt, and learn to play together. Brooke is the Mommy, Lauren is the Daddy and Lily is the Baby. And it's a HOOT. Whenever the twins see me in pain or sick, they come and put their hand on my belly and tell me they love me. It just doesn't get any better than that.
Ralph Lauren // I love when my girls wear their clothes, but I have always gazed longingly into the baby boy section at the store. It's just my favorite...there was a GREAT sale at the outlet in Texas and I just couldn't resist this cute polo.
Target // I have some pretty sweet friends that are throwing me a little baby shower. I feel so honored and blessed. I know this is my FOURTH baby after all. :) I registered for a few things at target, and received a great goodie bag with free products and coupons!!!
Boots // Who knew the North Face made infant booties??? I just couldn't resist...
Diapers // I decided to order some diapers from The Honest Company. They are plant based, non toxic disposable diapers AND they come in the cutest patterns! I used a 40% off coupon on my first "bundle" and then cancelled my subscription after I received my first shipment. I'm excited to try them out!
Baby Steals // I'm not sure if any of you sign up to receive alerts from Baby Steals or not, but I LOVE their deals! They have deals on great products like Aden + Anais, Petunia Pickle Bottom and Ergo!
***name update - we are still debating - this baby will have a name, even if it's after he arrives!***
