number two

[[[ I think I may have an excellent excuse for not posting since the first of December. ]]]

As Christmas was drawing near, I was exhausted with trying to get everything done. But nearing the Holiday, hunger mounted onto that exhaustion. By the 23rd of December, it was pretty obvious what the "problem" was. I took a test to confirm what we already knew.

If you would have asked me anytime before Christmas when I wanted to have another baby, I would have told you - with much emphasis - that "I'm not ready. Maybe in the fall we'll try, for sake of Acacia having a sibling close in age. But if it were only up to me, I don't even want to consider getting pregnant for another two years."

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, 
neither are My ways your ways," declares the LORD.     
Isaiah 55:8

That night I stayed up late, my mind a whirlwind of thoughts. Sometime past midnight,  I laughed out loud when it occurred to me that there was only one opportunity for this little baby to be. And the Lord saw fit to make it. We testify of the Lord's sovereign timing.

The Legistics: I will be 9 weeks tomorrow. Baby is due August 24th. I am nauseous every waking moment of the day. I want to be asleep every moment I'm awake.

I am still in the risk period for something to happen to the baby, so please keep us in your prayers. Also, I have not announced anything on Facebook (yet), so please don't leave me a giant 'congrats' on my page ;) Here, your comments are welcomed, of course. I will probably be putting something in my FB status at the end of the week.

Thanks for being my friends and following my posts.

Well, I'm off to take my afternoon nap!
