Time Flies...

...when you're having a baby!

This last Sunday at church, I told several people I had just 12 weeks left until this baby would be arriving.

Well, evidently, I've lost the ability to keep track of time.

Today, I was so surprised when the doctor said, "Well, here we are at 31 weeks.  Just nine to go!"

NINE WEEKS.  Wow.  Where did the last three weeks go?

Crazy!

We're so thankful for all the "pieces" that are falling together to get us ready for this baby:

*Lots of help with the reworking of plumbing and electricity in the basement for a new laundry space
(Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!)  I'm sure the baby will love his "closet" dwelling space!

*A steal-of-a-deal crib and a *free* mattress  (Thank you!!!)

*All sorts of awesome baby equipment passed along by sweet friends  (Thank you! Thank you!)

*A new-to-us vehicle that will fit our whole family

*A closet full of diapers thanks to a deal-grabbing friend and my mom (Thank you!)

*A tote full of the sweetest little baby boy clothes passed on from generous friends (Thank you so much!)



Exciting days ahead, my friends!

"Woo-hoo!" as Titus would say. Nine more weeks. Wow. That did go fast. You're already an amazing, godly, disciplined mom, so this will be a piece of cake, right? :) I'll be praying. You can do all things through Christ Who lovingly, gently, and faithfully strengthens you, one day, one hour at a time. :) Jess
