Since my first (and until this one, only) post here about our pregnancy was during our 10th week, I figured it would be appropriate to make a post with less than 10 weeks to go.
Things have gone absolutely wonderfully since that post. All that worry was worthless and Jesus tells us so in his Sermon on the Mount:
Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
But it’s still hard to make it go away. It wasn’t until we had several doctor’s visits and an ultrasound or two that I started really getting excited. Of course, feeling him kick helps a lot too. Last night I was actually able to distinguish FEET! It’s an awesome feeling!
Everyone is constantly commenting on how our lives are going to change as if we weren’t already acutely aware of it. I know that we cannot comprehend exactly how drastic the change is until after the baby comes, but we are human, we understand (albeit sometimes fear) change. My life changed drastically when I graduated from High School and when I quit college and got that full-time job. Being laid off numerous times were intense changes as well, not to mention meeting and marrying the love of my life.
Yes I know change rather intimately, and honestly normally I don’t like it.
However I’m looking forward to this one.
Counting toes and fingers, changing diapers, teaching him how to speak and walk. Teaching him how deep God’s love is for him. These are a mere handful of the changes I know are coming. And yes, I know that not all of the changes are going to be pleasant. But y’know… I’m thrilled about them all.
Bring on the change!
Less than 10 weeks left.
