Baby prepping...

So we've come into fall and the cooler weather is reminding us that winter is just around the corner, as well as the arrival of our little guy. We're excited and anxious all at once. Excited to meet the little guy whose been moving around and growing for well over 7 months now and anxious about the changes that will be taking place soon on our family. Once in awhile a little bit of me feels overwhelmingly (?) sad as I say goodbye to days with just my first-born. I have treasured him so much and am so thankful I'm able to stay home with my children. Watching him grow, learn, play, and turn into such a little boy of God's brings tears to my face every so often. It's such a bitter-sweet new beginning I'm approaching...
And, then there will be 4 of us! Dave has really kicked it into gear the last couple weeks to get some things done before baby arrives. Painting baby's room, baby's room furniture, a couple home projects, buying some baby clothes (off e-bay of course), putting the crib together, getting the car-seat out and cleaning it, preparing Jaxon, setting up baby's insurance, and thinking of names (yes, he's still nameless at this point...any ideas???). I must say for a husband who does not like "projects", he's been the apple of my eye these last few weeks in that department :-) So...we'll finish preparing the home for baby's arrival and keep preparing our hearts as we await his special entrance into our world. Can't wait to meet the little man!

Oh, come on...it's a natural picture of God's amazing gift to us as women. An example of His intelegant(?-spell) design of human kind:) Plus, my cousin wanted a full belly picture :-)
