37 Weeks {38 Tomorrow!} at Cape Zanpa

Friday, August 23, 2013


Tomorrow marks two weeks until my due date! 

It's hard to believe we're already at {or nearing} the end. This pregnancy has quite literally flown by, and ready or not, our son could make his entrance any day now. I have absolutely loved being pregnant {what an amazing privilege and gift!!}, but truth be told, now that he's made it to 38 weeks, I am getting ready for pregnancy to be over. But, that isn't up to me. It's up to God's timing who is preparing every single little detail of our babe. Reading the verses, "For You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my Mother's womb,"  and "Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be," takes on much more significance in my heart being pregnant -- knowing our baby boy is only seen right now by the God of the Universe ! He's in His hands, and this is their time. What an incredible comfort and joy to try and wrap my mind around.

So, now that I'm all done cleaning and organizing {and feeling the need to re-organize and clean at 3am, haha!}, have washed all of his adorable little clothes and put them away, the car seat is in, our hospital bag packed... I'm going to try to stop my nesting shinanagins and do what's most important. Hang out with my cute husband, try to rest while I still can, and be in the Word. 
Aaand... turn up the music and dance in the living room.

    1. I will definitely post photos of his nursery once we're done... almost there! Cam is finishing the rocking chair today and I'm just waiting on a few more things to arrive in the mail and of course - HIM!

      The sandals are from Piperlime... I got them on sale a few months ago but they have so many other cute pairs (:

      And thank you so much!!

  4. Congrats - I've been following along (quite literally - I'm just about 34 weeks) in your journey and totally agree, it has flown by. I admire your ability to already be done organizing and getting ready. Not having to worry about what's not done will make his arrival so much sweeter!

    1. Congratulations, Susie!! I hope you have a great rest of your pregnancy. I was really stressed about not having everything done and now feel SO much better. You'll get it all done! (: Especially if you wake up at 3am most nights to do more like I did... ha.

  32. Choosing pregnancy dressing is tough task because it always different size and after pregnancy these dresses will not be useful. Get more ideas here http://onlinefashion.com.au

  33. It is such an amazing place and your dressings perfect according to your health and the weather in which you are standing there. These types of moments are always great and memorable for the people who want to spend their life with their family and in such a great place like this one.
