I am so thrilled to see all my lovely things about me again! It has been a long time! Every plate, pillow cover, towel and treasured picture has been lovenly looked upon and placed with care in its new right spot. My clothes are another matter! I look at them fondly, but I am unable to partake in their use! Still not fitting into my clothes. :P
Benjamin did such a great job picking out our little place. I am in love! It is delightfully cozy. And I can't wait to post some pictures soon. Well, I don't know how soon, we have quite a mess here! It has been interesting learning how to be a nursing mom and try to get everything else done as well. I still don't know how all you moms who have more then one child do it! :)
All my love to Marie and Jon. We couldn't have done any of this without them.
To wake " at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks to another day of loving.
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home eventide with gratitude, and then sleep with a prayer
For the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
~Elegant Wedding Vows~
~Missing you O so much today as we celebrate three years of marriage. My love for you has grown and flourished so strikingly strong since that day that you made me your wife. I can't wait to be with you in ONE week!! I love you Benjamin Marius ~
Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be sanctuary to the other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other. Now there is no isolation for you. Now there is no more loneliness. Now you are two, but there is only one life in front of you.
A very Happy Valentines Day to everyone! I hope its filled with lots of love, hugs, and CHOCOLATE!! :P
And I also wanted to thank you all for the lovely comments about our little Winston. He is my delight and what a fun surprise that we had a boy!
Meredith asked about his middle name, which we had earlier decided on Freemont, but after thinking about it a little more, we decided on Benjamin. We will have to save Freemont as a middle name for another boy, if the Lord blesses us with another :) Winston means joyful rock. Seeing his little smiles already tells me it rings true :)
The birth started out really quick, my contractions began at three minuets apart. It was eleven hours of hard work! He was a water baby and came out with his hand on his face. I think he was sucking his thumb! :) His little hand, was what gave me so much trouble. My Mom and Marie were angels during the birth. I don't know how I would have done it with out them.
We went out on his one week Birthday, my parents treated Marie and I to manicures. Nicely colored nails does a girl's heart wonders! They are beautifully red in celebration of Valentines Day.
My parents flew back to Colorado today and I miss them so very much! It was nice that they were able to see both of their grand babies :)
Thank you all again for your kind kind words. I have reread through them several times! Much love on this wonderful Valentines Day :)
Elizabeth is in the middle of having some serious contractions right now. She gave me permission to post and let you all know that the baby is on its way. The contractions started around 7:30 P.M. and the time is 2:31 A.M. and she has been working really hard. She has been extremely calm and strong. I know you all will keep her in you prayers. There should be some pictures coming really soon!!
My due date is here! Can't wait to see what happens next! :) Its snowing buckets outside and I am so thankful to be nestled in warmly with my family. My mom and sister made delicious homemade graham crackers today. Perfect with a cup of tea to dip them in :) I am very glad I made Marie take a picture of me at 40 weeks. Although it took a lot to find one I liked :P Im not used to seeing myself so pregnant! We don't have a lot of mirrors, so I was pretty shocked to see me so BIG! :)
I am enjoying this month of February so much already! No baby yet, still walking around with a basketball. :) My mom is currently down to help me with the birth. After we have spent a couple of days catching up we have been to Hobby Lobby a couple times and are attempting making baby bags, Valentines cards and jewelry! Now that is if I don't go into labor anytime we can get all these fun things done LOL! I can't wait to post the beautiful baby bag that my mom is sewing for me!
My Benjamin will be here as soon as Itty Bitty decides to come. :) Which we are hoping will be any day now!
I hope everyone is looking forward to this beautiful Valentines season as I am :) I am getting a lovely Valentine in the shape of a baby :P
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
