Boy time flies during the summer! I’ve been busy weeding, spending time with the kids and well napping quite a bit which has superseded my writing time.
You see we are expecting baby #8 near the end of December! We are so excited about this new baby! I’ve learned a lot so far from the pregnancy. For example, I am a great grand multipara! (Which means I have delivered seven or more infants beyond 24 weeks of gestation.) I have gotten to have extra appointments since I am now the dreaded 40 years old! So far all of my tests have shown that I am actually in better shape than my last two babies! I feel strong, just tired and overly emotional. As long as I get my nap I am good to go! I am trying to be diligent about exercising enough to get my heart rate up and eating the best I can. We will see how the rest of this pregnancy goes but I feel so blessed to be carrying another baby and look forward to seeing who God is adding to our family.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
Psalms 127: 3-5
