At the end of My 6th Month...

The time is drawing near. I have about 12 weeks to go. Wow! Time seems to just be flying by.

What's goin' on?
I'm the type of person that likes to plan ahead, prepare with time and not do things last minute. Interestingly enough, God seems to be teaching me a lesson in being a parent... YOU CAN'T CONTROL EVERYTHING! If it were up to me, this is what I'd have done by now:
  • New Office: renovated and painted
  • Office furniture cleared out of what will be the nursery
  • Nursery: Walls fully painted
  • Nursery: Windows repaired
  • Nursery: Carpet professionally cleaned
  • Nursery: Partially Furnished with nursery furniture (maybe just a crib or a changing table)
Funny thing is... this is what we actually have done:
  • New office space has just received it's first coat of primer.
So that means we still have to do another coat of primer, paint the room, move in office furniture from what will now be the nursery and THEN we can get started on the nursery...! LOL!

I think since the moment we knew we were having a baby God has been really stretching me and teaching me to let go a little bit more and just to enjoy where I am now. Not to be so anxious about what I need to do down the road and how I can make sure it goes "my way". It's a hard lesson for me to learn.

With children comes new joys, concerns, worries and just incredible experiences. I should expect to really experience a change in my daily life. Some unpredictability and some surprises... good surprises! So this has been a crash course in "Chill Out 101: You Can't Control Everything".

Recent Pics
For those of you who have been wondering what I look like at the end of my 6th month, here are some pics I took of myself in the dressing room in the mall a few weeks ago. I was shocked at how big my belly had gotten so whipped out the iphone and took some infamous cell phone pics through the mirror.... LOL!
