32 Weeks...

Can you believe this belly?!?!? I have been praying this verse over my sweet kids, and made it "Reese's verse":
"I have no greater JOY than to hear my children are walking in the Truth!" 3 John 1:4
Oh, Lord, please let my children walk in the truth! Make MY walk evident to them and all of the people we surround ourselves with be evidence to them that You are their King!!
Here I am, totally scattered with my pregancy posts! I so wish I had posted more about this pregnancy! Not that I do not love this one so much, it just honestly does not cross my mind quite like the first time. So much to do in the daily tasks of life, I forget to sit and record all of my thrills and woes. I am blessed enough to feel so good while pregnant! I love the way I look and feel most of the time. The only complaint I can really say is that my hair is super thick and frizzy. This is coming from a girl whom all her life had board straight hair. Well, hormones like to shake things up. I got my hair cut and hi-lighted (praise Jesus) and my stylist was like, "yeah, your hair needs something done, it is weird." She thinned thinned thinned it and I feel like a new woman! Anywho, sweet Reese is just a-growin'! This week I have certainly "popped" out. Not that I was not popped out before, but honey, you ain't seen nothin' yet! I have prided myself in not wearing any maternity tops or dresses, but oh no, those days are over. I am hoping the maternity tops can hold me in! I just get so far out! Hilarious! Reese is super mover and I swear I can feel her little fingers like she is playing the piano! I wonder what she will be like? Like her brother? Will she love and be soothed by music? Will she be an awful napper and sleep like a charm at night? Shy or outgoing? Oh, I hope she loves dance like I do! I have been dreaming of the little ballerina days. It's hard to imagine that in a few short weeks I will be holding a newborn, smelling her sweet skin! Learning again the art of the swaddle and being up all hours of the night trying to figure things out! I know those baby days are so short. Every moment is so fleeting, it is amazing how they change. I hope I can savor it. I am so excited about my baby girl!

You look great and I loved this post. Having a newborn is such a whirlwind of emotions. I needed reminding how fast it goes by.

I'm so excited to meet little Reese. Don't feel bad about not posting as often. It's just what happens as you have more children. No one can do things with their second and third children quite like they did with the first. She will still be blessed immensely!
