Unfortunately I have been really, really sick and taking care of 6 (out of 7) sick little children. Not fun, but not impossible.

The bun is still in the oven-- cooking away until ripe and ready.

This Mommy is enjoying every last minute (most of the time) of her pregnancy.

Usually, I cannot wait for the baby to come and by the last few weeks, I'm hoping and praying every night that the baby would just get on with it and be born. Not this time.

One thing I've come to realize is that any one of my pregnancies could be my last. So with that in mind, I am really trying to enjoy this pregnancy wanting to appreciate each day and not hurry the imminent birth.

I have started to pack my hospital bag, put together baby coming home outfits and such......there is a genuine excitement wondering if it's a boy or girl, but I have such peace about it. Only God could be the giver of that peace to me.

So now I am feeling like my old self again and getting back into the swing of things.

Trying to keep the house clean until baby comes. Possible-- I just know it. Feeling blessed and just really thankful for my large family God has entrusted me with.
