Old Pictures New Babies

Monday, July 8th, 2019

May 8: Josephine is in love with this picture of her siblings. Back when I had 6 babies 5 and under I couldn’t even imagine what life would be like with more. Well, here I am with more and wouldn’t want life with less. I’m so thankful for all of them. God is good. 


It Was You

“So it was you!” said the squire to him, thinking of her nine months companion, of his quirks and movements to which she had grown so used, and thinking with wonderment, “So it was you.” The Squire by Enid Bagnold

At The Parsonage

It’s the Crazy Days (Daze) New Baby Phase at the Parsonage. So many of our favorite Winter funz have gone out the window this year. No Snow Ball, no Winter crafts or treats, Mama did not go outside and pull the sled this year and I have just kept trying to figure out how on Earth we would pull off Valentine’s day “requirements.” (Phil to the rescue on that one!)

I tell the babies, this is just a different kind of year. A new baby necessitates changes and putting some things aside. However, we do what we can and look forward to another year when we can have more of our normal enjoyments.

In the meantime we do have this delicious little baby to look at amidst all the crazy shuffling through the day.

I’m so thankful that we have made it to this point. Officially we have only a bit over 5 weeks left before we will meet this baby. I’m looking forward to and praying that day is a happy meeting.

Not knowing if we will be given more babies I wanted to enjoy this pregnancy as best I could. Even that long and emotional first trimester. I didn’t know what to expect this time, being over 40. Everything you read leads one to believe the worst about being pregnant in this decade of life. So I’m amazed that up until now this has actually been one of my very easiest pregnancies. And I’m in awe of just how healthy our baby boy is.
