The wait.

It's been over a month since I posted the Project Evacuate Baby list.
Over a month!
That means my little girl has been considered full-term for OVER A MONTH.

I'm trying to stay optimistic knowing that Alice is healthy and I am healthy.
I continually tell myself, "There's no need to rush things" and "God's timing is perfect".

Ben also often reminds me that the typical first pregnancy is 41 weeks, 3 days, according to our Bradley class.
That's today, if we're going by her 2nd (and obviously more accurate) due date.
Maybe today's the day??

Ben and I are enjoying these last few days of our family of two.
Example: We slept until 9:30 on Saturday! (Truly a miracle for me.)
Then, leisurely got up and walked to our little neighborhood breakfast place.
It was such a nice day!

So, there you have it.
We are waiting.
Waiting to see our daughter for the first time.
Waiting for our lives to be forever changed.

Ok - so... I love you.
I hope you are able to rest today. It will be soon. No one has ever been pregnant forever. You will not be the first. You will not take her to Kindergarten in-utero. At this point it is literally a matter of hours before she is born. God's timing IS perfect, as much as we dont understand sometimes why we have to wait. I certainly don't understand waiting... or enjoy waiting... or gracefully accept waiting. But, I love you and I am thinking about you. I will be a patient waiter today. For you. Love you, Mo.
