Catching up

It's been a shamefully long time since I've "spoken" to you all here. No offense meant...just terribly occupied with other things these days. Things that suddenly feel very important like taking a nap every day (other wise I can't seem to function past 8pm!) and organizing baby things. My growing belly has slowed me down a bit too...
38 weeks

I seem to "lumber" a lot these days even though I really try to be light and graceful on my feet. I don't think I'm fooling anyone. So, only 13 days to go to my due date! I have to say, I feel great considering how close we are to the end. I thank the Lord for that!

We've been keeping busy with other things too. Recently it was a cousin sleepover party at our house with Rhiannon and Reuben. Such wonderful kiddos. They talked me into walking up Solus hill and I actually made it to the top!...lumbering the whole way, of course.

Mariah loves her cousins.
Rhiannon sometimes gives her wee "lessons" on the piano.

The following are just a few snapshots of Mariah who won't be the baby in this house for too much longer!
I am treasuring each day that I get to be her mommy. She is a joy.
