I am....

I am tired. It is getting really hard for me to sleep comfortably and to stay asleep all night.

I am busy. There has been so much to do in preparation of having this baby. Here's what is left on our list. Shots for our cat, Charlie on Wednesday, oil change for the van, install the car seat, take the van to the auto body shop for rear bumper repairs (remember our car accident 2 1/2 months ago?), do our taxes, fill out a huge stack of papers for Kindergarten, replace several light bulbs, prepare address labels for birth announcements, and take Logan to the doctor this afternoon for his "owies."
Oh, and I also really need to clean this house.

I am blessed. I am feeling so blessed during this busy time too. Blessed to be involved in a great bible study, blessed to have a great family who is ready to make last-minute plans when Bunjamin decides to make his appearance, and blessed to have great children who are currently working together on building with train tracks.
I am blessed to have a great husband who is currently working hard with me on our new marriage book. I am hopeful that we will find our way to the exact place where God wants us to be. I am also hoping that my great husband will not have to miss his great opportunity for luxury box seats at the Wild game this Sunday on account of our baby being born then :).

I am waiting. I'm waiting for this baby. Today marks week 37 of my pregnancy! I have been having many signs of early labor in the past week and I am trying hard to be patient. I go back to the doctor on Thursday to find out if an early induction will be in our future, or perhaps not just yet. Either way, we completely trust our doctor's decision and God's perfect timing for this little one.

I am nervous. Lately I've been feeling a little nervous about how I will manage being a mommy to 3 children, being a wife, staying in God's word daily, and still having a little time to breathe. I know that things will all work out fine, but it feels a little overwhelming to think about it all.

Bring on the baby!!! Oh, and our little Bunjamin has a name now too. I'm not going to share it on here, but some of you already know what it is (or what it will likely be anyways).
