I’m in bed right now and it’s almost 6 am. I’ve been awake and restless since about 4am… It’s quiet moments like this, where I admit my first go-to is to check Instagram and then Facebook (which I rarely check FB). Occasionally I’ll feel our little man stretching out or adjusting his position and I’m reminded that it won’t be too long now that when I wake up in the middle of the night or early morning it will be because our new little one will need us.
We have 8 weeks to go. Holy moly. The time has flown by. At first, time seemed to crawl! We were hoping just to make it past where our first three pregnancies ended and then hoping to make it to 12 and then took forever for the 20 week anomaly & gender ultra sound to get here. Now, we find ourselves at 32 weeks! Ahhhh…
This still is pretty surreal. Ill see photos of myself and my reaction is, “Woah! That’s me? My belly is really that big?” I’m afraid at times ill be so busy focused on other things that ill miss this precious time.
Our lives are about to change… We welcome the change and are SO ready for it, but man, it’s just crazy to think how it will no longer be just Zach and I, like it has been for the past (almost) 8 years. I’m so thankful for the time we have had together… To hang out and get to know each other as husband and wife, start a business, travel the world, work on our marriage, and now we are about to enter a new season of life.
Things have been busy here lately. We have since officially closed on our first home (bittersweet), moved into an apartment, are preparing for our next creativeLIVE appearance while working on our next big launch, making a million decisions on our home that’s being built, not to mention heading to the property just about every other day while of course getting our business in order so we can take time off once little Gray arrives. And then I have my baby journal I’m keeping, my prayer journal and this blog.
Even though there’s a lot going on, I feel there is a calm and peace to this all as well. Sure, I have my moments of stressing, but when i take a step back and look back on what God has done, where he has brought us from, the things he has brought us through, the things he has blessed us with and continues to bless us, I stand so amazed and thankful.
Giving birth to our little babe is going to be just the beginning with new challenges, joys, frustrations and growing times for Zach and I, but we welcome it and know that every step of the way, we are not alone.
