We got to go to the doctor yesterday to get our first view of our newest addition!!! I don't care how many times I see that unrecognizable little peanut on the screen, it moves my heart every time. We heard the heart beating at 118 beats per minute and had a slight change in due date. Just a week later, we can now expect our new addition around June 15!
I decided to call one of my closest friends from college, ShaRhonda to share the good news with her but little did I know she had some news of her own! She is pregnant as well!!! This will be her fourth baby but the great part is that we will be due within a week of each other! I just love how the Lord allows you to walk through different phases of life with the people you love. With our first born, we had our good friends Michael and Annie to go through the pregnancy with and now ShaRhonda and Isaiah! We are thrilled!
So today I had some big plans to go to St. Clair County for work and it was going to be a late night for me getting home. Matt, my husband, usually hates my late nights of work because we don't get to spend much time together. Well, the weather had other plans and the trip was cancelled due to tornadoes sweeping through our area. (I don't mind trips being cancelled for that.) Anyway, I have been at home this afternoon after getting held at my daughter's daycare because the tornado sirens were going off and they wouldn't let me leave. I decided to take some time to spend with Havah and not worry about the never ending pills of laundry, the dishes that have that weird smell or the floors that somehow ALWAYS end up sticky. And I must say....I really like this playing with my daughter and housework later kind of day! Mine and Matt's plan has always been for me to go part time working when we have our second child. So I have had a preview as to what it might be like in a little less than 9 months. I think I like it. Currently, Havah is taking her afternoon nap, I have a cake in the oven (strawberry cake that will have cream cheese icing..yummy), planning meatloaf, mashed potatoes, sweet peas and rolls for supper, and I writing on my blog page...WHAT?! It feels so natural. Even on a Saturday it just doesn't feel like this. It kinda makes me wonder, "What is God up to?"
Of course, there are no plans currently of going part time in the near future but I certainly am warming up to the idea. So if you happen to think of it, send up a little prayer for wisdom and provision for our ever growing family.
Since my beautiful daughter is singing to me (crying) through her monitor, I will go for now but the thought still stands.
