Life Has Been Good

Here I am 38 weeks pregnant and realizing I haven't updated my blog through-out my whole pregnancy. John and I are excited to have a baby boy join our family any day now.

I am fairly big, plump, and round; I'm also proud of it! This pregnancy hasn't been as kind to me as my first. However, I know all the pain and discomfort will be worth it within a short time when I get to hold our special, little guy.

Madelyn is now officially a girl. I can't believe how grown she is and how much she understands. I have a feeling she is going to be an extremely helpful big sister and will love having a brother. I often find myself staring at her and smiling when she is playing or talking to me and she says, "Mommy? What?" And I respond with, "You're just so cute and I love you!" I'm proud to be her mother and raising her has truly been such a joy.

Life has been good to us. We are happy. We are safe. We feel we are where we need to be. Most of all, we feel we are some of the luckiest people on the planet to have all we have, especially counting each other and the love and happiness that fills our home.
