Let's Catch Up

So it's been a little crazy over here. Days keep going by and Baby Girl's due date keeps getting closer. 

I already feel like she is growing up too fast. I want to savor every day between now and when she arrives and then every day after she is here. 

Meanwhile, there is so much to be done and people ask me multiple times a day if we are ready. Obviously, these are people who don't know me very well. Because anyone who knows my relationship with deadlines knows that "ready" isn't really a state I ever achieve. 

I'm OK with that. Baby Girl is going to arrive when she arrives and most likely things won't be ready, but the timing will be perfect nonetheless. 

By the way, we are officially one month from our due date. August 30th, here we come. (But if Baby Girl wants a deadline extension, that's fine, too.)

I'm not talking about my belly (although that is bigger every day).
I'm talking about Erin's much anticipated book, which is now available on Kindle.
This is BIG news, people!
Go here to read an excerpt, purchase or borrow it if you are a Prime member. And if you love it, don't forget to write a review.

Rejoice Always ...

"Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Easier said than done, but nonetheless, worth the effort.

8 Months

Up until two weeks ago, I was telling people I was about 6 1/2 months pregnant.
I had been underestimating on purpose as to avoid losing my mind in the final days.
I figured the less pregnant I allowed myself to think I was, the less anxious I would be about little girl's arrival.
(Did you know the average gestation is actually 41 weeks and 1 day, not 40 weeks.)
My plan was great in theory. However, life-long procrastinators should not underestimate their deadlines, especially when they are unmovable.
I would have remained in the dark if my coworker hadn't pointed out two weeks ago that I was 7 1/2 months pregnant. 
Today marks 32 weeks, also known as 8 months.
In celebration, we bought a crib. It was kind of surreal, nobody even asked us for ID.

Hello, four-day weekend. I would greatly appreciate if your days were long and the weather cool. Thanks!

Why are you terrified?

As Jesus got into a boat, his disciples followed him.
Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea,
so that the boat was being swamped by waves;
but he was asleep.
They came and woke him, saying,
“Lord, save us! We are perishing!”
He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?”
Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea,
and there was great calm.
The men were amazed and said, “What sort of man is this,
whom even the winds and the sea obey?” 

~Matthew 8:23-27

I keep asking myself this question and trying to remember that God is in my boat even when it is being swamped by waves.

It was the first day of the second half of the year.
Erin made a big announcement.
2013 continues to be a year of miracles.
