Due... August 9, 2013!!!!
We shall see if Baby Munck arrives on August 9,
I have been known to carry 2 weeks late or go 3 weeks early....
either way Baby Munck will arrive in the Lord's perfect time!
And, oh will we be thrilled to see who this little person is,
this treasured gift that we have been blessed with.
I have been asked how I'm doing,
well, that all depends when you ask me ;)
For the first several weeks the morning sickness was...
All. Day. Long. Sickness.
Smells were not good, some foods were~yuck~
reading wasn't pleasant and the computer was my worst enemy,
I couldn't read or type without becoming very ill!
In just the past couple of days these things are getting better, Yay~
I have thankfully moved into "my normal" morning sickness,
which is evening sickness...
I had this with most of my babies:)
Last weekend I had a few complications which gave a scare,
so I spent the weekend on bed rest.
Monday morning Arthur took me to the doctor where I had a
We walked away "Praising the Lord"
Baby Munck #12
looked perfect and was just fine!
I am now entering into week 13 of pregnancy
and I'm starting to look different....
I'm now gaining weight and rounder in the middle.
I have the look of, well, FAT~
Many years ago,
the fat look stage before and after pregnancy
really bothered me, yes that was vain!
With age and wisdom I now see the weight as a sign of hard work,
that tiny little person I'm handed after all is said and done
is so worth the weight gain...
A tiny little bundle with silky smooth pink skin,
a round head with peach fuzz that tickles your nose when you lean in to smell it,
Oh and the smell is divine, a smell like nothing else,
the smell is the smell of "new" life,
when you touch the palm of that tiny baby hand the fingers wrap around yours
pulling you tightly in and warming the deepest part of your heart,
then you cradle the baby close and hold the baby up against your chest
where your hearts beat and you have a feeling of oneness...
As if you weren't in love already,
these moments are the first of many treasured memories,
memories that are priceless!
|Christmas Ornament says...BABY 2013|
We told our children Christmas morning about the baby. I cross stitched an ornament that said BABY 2013.
Arthur and I wrapped the ornament, we saved it for the last present. We gathered the children in a circle on the floor and they opened the box, Ruth Ella pulled it out and Elizabeth read the words....
they were surprised and thrilled!!!!
We had a few yell out that they had been praying for another baby!
Our children did really well to keep the baby a secret for so many weeks,
it was really hard for Wesley.
He has claimed this baby as his and ask me daily..
"how is my baby doing"?
I love his sweet heart and his excitement for a new sibling.
Yesterday I received a surprise in the mail...
the most precious mint green baby booties, along with a letter of congratulations and prayers!
This was sent from a blog/pen pal friend who I have never met face to face,
isn't the Lord wonderful to give us friends :)
speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
