I really want to fast forward six weeks and hold our baby girl in my arms. And introduce her to Josh and her adoring fans (grandparents). And count her ten fingers and ten toes. And then bring her home and devote entire days to snuggling with her on the couch.
There have been some quick points in this pregnancy, but in general it's marched along at the pace of a Dostoyevsky novel.
On Monday we hit the six week mark.
Maybe it'll be only four? (A girl can hope!) Or maybe seven plus? (Noooooo!)
And maybe God's teaching me a little something about patience. And waiting on His timing.
This pregnancy has pretty much been a breeze, and I'm so very thankful for that. Heck, I'm so thrilled to be pregnant in the first place. It's been a tremendous blessing.
But right now? I'm ready to be done and meet this kid.
We're done with the nursery (pictures to come soon!). We have the equipment. The car seat has been successfully installed in the car. Itty bitty clothes are washed and in drawers and the hospital suitcase is mostly packed.
So, seasoned moms of the Internet, please give me your advice on what I should do for the next six weeks. How do we prepare our hearts for this child? What do you wish you'd have done pre-baby?
