Grains of Gratitude

Yes I'm still here and pregnant! LOL 39 wks today and I thought I would have had this baby by now...I'm just a little bit depressed that s/he hasn't arrived yet; hoping it will happen this week!

1. I'm grateful for our MOPS group; we had a smaller group on Tue, but we had a fun time and it was relaxing.

2. We had a MOPS Steering meeting on Wed and I'm glad we were able to get a lot accomplished. We've had 4 steering members move and only had 1 person replaced, so it's been hard to get everything done with less on leadership.

3. I'm grateful for these chocolate pancakes with strawberries Joe made for Valentine's Day dinner. Yes dinner :) He wakes up too early for him to have made those for breakfast! So we had breakfast for dinner and they were yummy.

4. I'm grateful the club on base finally had another free family buffet dinner; they used to have these once a quarter and had stopped for about a year. Finally on Friday they had one...it's nice to go out to dinner for free!

5. I'm grateful I won the One World One Heart giveaway from Susie Q at Rabbit Run Cottage - thank you!

Maybe these will be my last pregnancy pictures...one can hope anyway!

Great pictures! How cool about your win too. I'm of course hoping you have your baby on my son's birthday which is 21st February. Exciting times!!

Omaha Mama said...

I can't wait for baby news! It's all so exciting!!!

For being this far along, you just don't seem that big (now, I'm sure you don't feel that way!).

Good luck with everything. Prayers for a happy birthing story this week.

HUGS!

Beth said...

I came on here hoping for baby news! Oh, well. It will happen soon!

You look so tiny and cute! I never made it to 39 weeks, had daughter at 37 weeks and people were always asking if I was having twins! I was as big as a house.

I LOVE those pregnancy pics. LOL how does it feel to have a fully formed child in there? Does S/he move alot or is it too cramped now for s/he? hehe can't wait to see pics of the new baby.

LauraJ said...

Cindy said...

Everytime I see on bloglines that you have a new post, I rush to it to find out if there is a new baby with us! :)

You are too adorable and TINY!!! Hope this week is fun for you. Enjoy your last few days with just one baby! :)

You are most welcome - they came from the heart. I am a mother and a grandmother, and I see all people but children especially through the eyes of a mother. Best of luck for your delivery, may it come soon and be smooth and gentle - your little one has a most wonderful big sister with galaxies in her eyes waiting to hug and to watch over him/her. :)

amber said...

Look at that cute tummy, Michelle! I wish I had looked that thin everywhere else when I was pregnant!

Hang in there...you'll hold that sweet baby before you know it!

jeanette said...

I stumbled across your blog and have only seen the tip of the iceberg. Kayla is a beautiful girl. Seeing her photos brought me great joy. I have a 7 month old daughter, Sydney with T21 and she is a true gift from God. It seems like only yesterday I was waiting for the big day as well. I hope that your delivery is quick and easy. Blessings to you and your family!

I'm so excited for you. Cant wait to hear from you guys when the baby is born. Which position are you with MOPS again? Replacing 4 has got to be hard. We will be replacing 2 this fall.

As much as I love the pictures,I hope s/he will be here soon. I went over the 39 wks with both of mine. I'm leaving Fri.2/22 and will be gone for a few days so no internet for that time....Sooo I'd appreciate it if you go before Fri Or after Mon 2/25....hee hee You know I'm just kidding. I like everyone in blog land have become a part of your family and this birth is a part of the family. My wish is for you to have a happy and health baby what ever the date.
Love and Blessings,
Glo

I love the pictures. You sure don't look like you are 39 weeks along. I look back at my photos and I am glad there are a few with the big belly. Thinking of you. Theresa

Renee said...

Ohhhh, BEAUTIFUL belly.

I promise that the baby will be in your arms shortly but I know you're VERY ready right now. (hugs)

None of mine came before their due dates. First was 10 days over, second 1 day over, third 7 days over. Hoping you have a beautiful, peaceful birth experience with this next little miracle.

Come on out little one. Mommy, Daddy, and big sister want to see your sweet face.
