joe and abby day


July 26, 2017

today is joe and abby day. joe officially starts his week off today and we are going to spend it together drinking coffee, going back to some of the places from our first dates, farmers markets and a few things around the house. the nursery is set, the bags are (almost packed). the only things left to do are vacuum and mop the floors.

this is just the most surreal feeling in the world. i woke up around 3am and fell back asleep around 4:30 and slept until 8am. (which i haven’t done in forever). we just woke up going holy crap, this is the last day before the baby comes. this is just wild.

i am so grateful for today and the opportunity to spend it together. relaxing and enjoying each other, our area, our farm and getting it just right before we bring the baby home.

and today we are officially at 39 weeks. with the avsd and some other fun things they found throughout the course of my last pregnancy we were told early early early. if we were not having a c section tomorrow honestly i think this little goldfish might just take his or her own sweet time haha. and with how big they are already guessing him/her to be…. yikes haha.

we have been really spending the last couple months just going crazy over if it’s a boy or a girl. i have felt boy from the very first few months and joe had been very convicted it’s a girl. i don’t know if it’s because the last two babies in our families have been boys? but joe is pretty certain it’s a girl. i don’t know any guesses?

thank you all so much for your encouragement and prayers. it’s hard not to focus on the scary things. we just are hoping and praying and having faith that the baby will be fine and there will be no further complications. our first goal is getting the baby here. and we are just focusing on that.

happy thursday friends.

    Praying for you Abby, Joe and goldfish. Enjoy your new calling as parents, you’ll be amazing! I’ve told my kids that loving your child is amazing and eye opening. I was able to better understand Gods perfect unconditional love for me after I felt my unconditional love for my kids. The amazing thing is Gods love is even stronger for me than my love for my kids. (Very hard to imagine) !!!! Enjoy this time!
