oh, baby...

You'd think at this stage of the game, there would be no more surprises...
But, you fairly knocked me off my feet.
As the days spread into weeks - i kept my secret... bringing out my knowledge of you to admire in the dark before sleep came. Anxiety was kept at bay as there was only my Father to talk to - & He's not big into fear. i watched my body begin to change - to accommodate you - little one, into whom life was breathed by God Himself. Your days were already numbered by the Creator of the Universe & i praised Him as i rested in the knowledge of His Goodness.
But now,
the secret is leaked...
in whispers - hushed and sacred - news of your impending arrival is beginning to spread.
Our circle of love - once only God and you - next me - next papa - is spreading further and further as those who will love you for life hear the joyful news that you're coming.
Baby B - hoped for, loved and expected 01-31-10

Trust all goes well with your journey to January... you never know when life will bring one of its "surprises," eh...

Sometimes I hope for one of those surprises to land near here... but so far I just have to be thankful for the two I've got... even though they are way too far away, at the moment!!

So your parents are hitting the big "20!" -- pretty good for only three kids! My parents are stuck on "9"! (And I think no one but myself would be crazy enough to alter their pre-set families now!! Mores the pity!!)

Oh Paige! I am so happy for you all. I only wish we were having more! I read all your lovely baby blogs and all the old feelings of babies and pregnancy and fear and happiness came rushing back. Praying for you Neil and your little ones!
