This morning, DearHubby asked me if I'd felt anymore contractions. I peacefully said, "No."
I also decided that I will treat today as any other pregnancy day, in contrast to the past couple of days where I have dwelt on the question "When?" (Read about some lessons I am learning in "Waiting on the Lord")
As I've waited for our new Little One, I've gotten almost everything completed for her arrival...I looked through DearDaughter1's 0-3Months clothes, sorted through them, washed, and prepared them in Little One's baskets. DearDaughter and I dusted off her cradle and put on clean fresh sheets.In addition, I am trying to keep the house in the ready mode...That means keeping up with the laundry daily and keeping up with my daily house chores so that if I do go into labor, the house cleaning is already caught up and DearHubby won't be burdened by any last minute details.
I am also planning to do some light grocery shopping today to keep us stocked through the weekend. My parents are arriving, from California, this Sunday, to help us out for 2 weeks. At that point, my mom and dad can do the grocery shopping for us on Monday.
Lastly, I am trying to spend as much quality time with DearDaughter as possible. Today, while doing chores, I was still able to play stickers with her, draw with her, and we even got out a new "toy", play dough!!!
Having such a peace over this situation has been nice. It's "freed" me in the sense that I don't feel like "life" has to stop just because I am waiting...
I'm still trying to relate this waiting period for Little One's arrival to our waiting period for Jesus' second arrival. I still haven't come up with a good connection or lesson yet. I know God will show me what He wants me to learn, eventually...
