this morning...

I have my sweet naked-except-the-cloth-diaper toddler in his room learning it's okay to play by himself since big brothers have been at school all day everyday.

I have an upset tummy, the norm the past couple of days.

I have so.much. to do before the baby arrives.

I have a friend coming over to help me paint what will be the older two boys' room.

I have no more room left in my uterus [seemingly]. At least it feels that way.

I have so many thoughts running through my head...

..about my spiritual life, my married life, my kids, my soon to be newest baby, names, my house, my messy car, the epidural I keep forgetting to sign up for-though I'm praying (and could you pray too?) that I go into labor on my own before the 30th, my hopes for this birth process....

...thoughts that are just running wild giving me little peace at the moment.

Oh how I need to quiet my mind and simply focus on just one task, one thought, one single thing at a time.

My to-do lists are made. One is an entire list of things I want done before Brennen arrives. {also? we think we're set on that first name. you like?}.

And I have a separate list of things I want to do for just today.

I think I will go have a snack and get started on item number one and intentionally focus my mind on one thing at a time today.... or I might go crazy....


  1. Hang in there. You are doing great! And if it doesn't get all done...its okay. A healthy baby will greet the world. :) Praying for you!

  2. You are almost there my friend! I cannot wait to hold yet another of your precious baby boys in my arms! I of course love the name and what I love even more is that each of your guys have a different vowel(well and y too, but it should be a vowel anyways) before their 'n'. I am praying that your body will change it's mind this time about that whole labor business and regardless of that I'm praying for ya too. I love you!!


I am so happy you are here. Your words make my heart so happy.
