10 days till due date.

How are you all doing this weekend?
I had a nice little date night with Aaron last night, just pizza, and a movie at home. It was cozy and sweet! :)

Today has been a pretty relaxed day, Aaron works Saturdays so I try to use it as a day to get extra cleaning done. I woke up at 5, and made Aaron his lunch then he went off to work. I went back to bed and slept till 9:30!! Which was WONDERFUL. I haven't slept so hard and well for a long time.

I plan on doing some deep, deep cleaning after lunch. I also might even open up some of the windows to air out our place. With it being in the 40s it feels so warm.

I tend to go on a walk first, hoping that might start some labor ;)

Are you a Pinterest person? I am :) I found this neat idea to make verse cards for labor and delivery. You make this little book full of encouraging verses for when you are in labor... I am going to make my verse cards today. The post gave some verses but I will probably add some of my own. Here are some of the verses...If you have any verses that come to mind please share them :)

“You keep him in perfect peace 
whose mind is stayed on you, 
because he trusts in you.”

“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”

I shall not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad,

“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear

into the heart of the sea,
though it’s waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at it’s swelling.”

Counting down the days.

Hey Yall :) 

Ahh the holidays are finally behind us, I usually am a little sad when Christmas is over but not this year. I have anxiously been waiting 9 months for January to get here, and it FINALLY has.


I am 38 weeks pregnant!!! This picture I took yesterday after my OB appointment. Jedidiah and I are very healthy. I am 2 cm dilated, and 50% effaced. He can come any day now. Preferably sooner then later :)  My doctor believes baby will be on the smaller side, around 6lbs. Both Aaron and I were only 6lb babies so that's why he is probably going to be on the smaller side.

Since I've been in the 9th month sleeping is near impossible. Trying to get comfortable, rolling side to side, tends to keep you up most of the night. Not to mention those insane power house kicks Jedidiah likes to do right as mama starts falling asleep.

Aaron and I are so excited to meet our little man, we just want to hold him and fill him with love and kisses!

I've been having lots of braxton hick contractions, which is all part of getting closer to the end. We get so excited though thinking its the real thing and then they end up being nothing.

Aarons family came up from Alabama at the beginning of January, they stayed for 4 days, It was nice to see them!
One of the days they were here it was -30 outside, his older brother Cal lives in Florida. So the cold weather was a little bit of a shock :)

Well I am off to go get groceries, I hope you are having a wonderful day.
I do want to leave you with this quote from a book I have been reading, I hope it encourages you like it did me.
"As disciples of Christ, we are servants of God, and as servants,  we keep our eyes on Him and receive our instructions through His Word. Recognizing our servant status is the essence of wisdom. "-Lydia Brownback (A woman's wisdom)
