Halfway there!

Today marks the halfway point until we get to meet our little baby. I still can't believe how much faster my 2nd pregnancy has gone than with the first. I know it's because I get pretty busy with Aven and it keeps my mind off the waiting.

We are so excited we get to go in the morning to double check the sex of the baby and get another little peek. I don't care how many times you have had an ultrasound it never gets old seeing what a miracle life really is.

Here is a cute poem that I somehow came across when I was pregnant with Aven and it's one of my favorites.

A newborns conversation with God…

A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."

God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."

Again the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"

God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."

“And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

God said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."

“Who will protect me?"

God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life."

"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

God said, "You will simply call her, 'Mom'."

I can't wait to meet my 10th grandchild! The Lord is so good to us and His gift of life is amazing! How can anyone doubt a Creator when they witness the unborn child in the womb, or the moment that child comes from the mothers womb. Miracle is what it is for sure and He has blessed my life with so many miracles.
