39 weeks

.
My thoughts the morning of {May 24} Amiah's scheduled c.section....

.........................................................................................................................

 

Little baby,
Today marks 39 weeks... the day we finally get to meet you and welcome you into our little family!

It's 9:59am and I'm in bed, propped up by a hill of pillows.  The window is open... the curtain is dancing... I hear the birds outside.  May 24, what a better day than to be your birth day?!

I am on my tenth hour of complete fasting. Oh, what I wouldn't do for a tall cup of hot tea and some fresh fruit right now!  Only two more hours, and we'll head to the hospital for your birth.   I am so anxious to see your little face... I can hardly wait for you to reveal if you're a boy or girl!  Down deep i think you are a sweet little girl, since this pregnancy has been nothing like your big brother's.

I have peace about having a c.section.  The doctors think you're around 8 pounds. If so, we don't want you getting much bigger... hence "taking you" today and not waiting any longer.
.
It's time I get up and start getting ready. This is the last I will write to you that you are "womb-side".  We are beyond ecstatic for what the next hours and days hold!

We love you precious baby! You are our miracle!

She's here!

Thursday, May 24 we welcomed our daughter,  Amiah Grace into the world and our hearts! 
What joy she has already brought us... we are overwhelmed with love for her! 
The transition to a 'family of 4' has been easy [thus far]... I couldn't be more grateful! 


Rejoicing!

four.



Four... after three, before the big 5.  It's a birthday that makes a Mom stop and realize how fast time passes... and ask where the last several years have gone? ... That her baby isn't a baby anymore, no matter how bad she wishes he was.  Four is a rude reminder that school is inevitable... that in a short year we'll be receiving a "back to school" shopping list and bus schedule. [excuse me as i sob!] 
- None the less, I am thankful for the stages and different ages. It was an extra-special time celebrating little man's fourth birthday last weekend. It amazes me how he has grown and matured in the past year.  He has my heart and I thank God for him, the joy and blessing he is to our family!
------------------------------------------------------------------










I'm hoping next time I write, there will be a new family member to introduce!

Blessings, 
Amy

Life Lately

F...
May is here, and these last days as a family of 3 are flying!
We've been soaking up this special time with little man, enjoying family outings, and lots of fun!

 
  We are so grateful for the past 3 years we've had with Alex... just him and us. 
However, we are so excited and eager to welcome another child.

God is good!
