27 Weeks

I'm 27 weeks pregnant!!  I'm feeling great and that's been about the first time in 27 weeks!!!  I have been enjoying feeling little Silas move and kick.  That feeling never gets old!  That's the best part of pregnancy.  I love just going about my day not thinking too much about being pregnant and then I get stopped in my tracks by a kick or wiggle.  It just makes me stop and smile.  I feel like it's God's gift to a pregnant mommy so we can stop and enjoy the amazing blessing pregnancy is, even when you don't feel so great. I think I can speak for most pregnant moms that feeling your baby move can override any sickness or pain you might be having and make you smile. 
Last night as a family we snuggled in our bed and watched home videos from when Lulu was a newborn up until she was about 2.  It was so fun to watch.  Mark and I just couldn't believe how different life is now with 3 and our 4th on the way vs. just having one baby.  We are enjoying our family so much more the more children we have.  I think we were pretty clueless and I remember being scared to stay home with a baby.  It was terrifying for me!  I eventually enjoyed it but I also remember feeling so overwhelmed with boredom, loneliness and not knowing what I was doing.  I find it much easier to have 3 children then one now knowing what I know.  I can see why people stop at 1 or 2 because it's hard!  But Mark and I last night after putting the kids to bed stood in the hall and just smiled at how much we love and enjoy our children.  It's a lot of work, it's a pleasure and the fruit of that work is so rewarding.  I feel like I grow so much as the Lord molds me with each new baby. I love being a mom and I love being married to Mark.  I can't wait to hold our new baby Silas.  He's already so loved and we are so excited to hold and kiss him.  I'm not stressed or scared or worried because I know that God will get us through anything that might come up and that each day is a gift so I'm going to enjoy it because it goes so fast.
