no baby yet

it's 6 a.m. and I'm laying here in bed trying to make sense of why this child has decided my womb is the perfect place for him to reside until kindergarten. It will be interesting to see what type of personality he ends up having and how is coincides with his long awaited arrival to birth.

I'm doing okay, but slowly losing patience. My mom came yesterday just to see the girls, help with the house and do some cooking. It's nice to finally have a clean house, happy girls who get a special day with their nana and a mama who is not having to figure out what to eat. There are good blessings.

Today we try the pedicure trick. I'm hoping some points in my feet might trigger some contractions. But when all is said and done, this baby will come when this baby is ready to come.

For now I am praying for peace and patience for myself and for the rest of my family, mostly Dave. I get that this is hard on him, especially being without a job and processing through everything that goes along with that.

Currently I'm listening to Be Thou My Vision which is helping to keep my mind in perspective. Interestingly enough we sang this at our wedding and it seems fitting in this time to keep the Lord in my perspective and knowing that He knows our perfect timing for this little boy to come into our family. I'm praying in the moments of losing patience that this comes to mind. Simple Gifts is also a great help.

Hopefully news will come soon.
