Today I am 37.5 weeks pregnant. In two and a half weeks (or hopefully less) I will meet my sweet baby Judah. Throughout the entire pregnancy, I've been thrilled about having another little one...but today it all hit me.
I had a doctors appointment and they gave me a free ultrasound so they could make sure he was head down. Sure enough, he was...and the ultrasound tech gave me a sneak peek of my sweet baby boy's profile. I saw his little lips (that look like momma's) and his teenie nose (that resembles his daddy's). He had his arm draped across his eyes, a trait we've become use to seeing during our ultrasounds. She double checked his little boy parts to make sure he was indeed a little boy...and all these pictures made me realize that I have a full sized beautiful amazing newborn inside of me.
It made me want to hold him, kiss him, love on him...introduce him to his big sister. I can't wait to meet him. I can't wait to name him. I can't wait to hear his cry and count his little fingers and toes. I feel insanely blessed.
It might sound crazy...but I'm ready for sleepless nights (it's not as if I'm getting the best sleep of my life now anyway). I'm ready to get to know him...get to know his cries and what he loves best. I'm ready to see how our sweet Alivia wants to help and how she reacts to a new little member of our family. I'm ready for the good and the bad...the ease and the challenges. I'm ready to hold both my babies in my lap and praise the Lord for the miracles he has blessed me and Jon with.
I'm ready for Judah Timothy Kenneth Lindstrom to arrive. I can't wait!
