38 Weeks

Well, I'm up because I haven't been sleeping well this week. I fall asleep and wake up half way through the night wide awake with my mind racing. So I figured I'd stay up for a bit to get organized and straighten up my house. 

Anyways, I've made it to 38 weeks! It's pretty wild to think that on Monday (good Lord's willing) we will be meeting this baby. I wanted Josh to take one last picture of me before the big day. I'm off by a couple of days but that's ok. 

Looking back I can remember everything I was feeling a year ago with the holiday season approaching and just over-come with sadness and fear of having to face my first holiday without Leyton. Those feelings certainly aren't gone as I miss my sweet Leyton and new feelings are arising as I think about actually meeting and holding this baby.   

But it is amazing to see how the Lord has brought me to this point at the end of my second pregnancy. As nervous and anxious as I have been throughout these past 38 weeks, I have to thank the Lord for how He has kept me close and has walked with me every single day. He has been faithful in all of his promises and has given me beauty for ashes. He deserves  all of the glory. 

And I can't say thank you enough to all our friends and family who have walked with us through this. We have been so blessed by your love and thank the Lord for each and everyone of you.
