a new chapter

Abigail, you have been the star of my blog for the last two and a half years. Your grandparents and friends have enjoyed watching you grow from an itty bitty baby into a beautiful little girl. We've let them in on your victories and they have faithfully prayed you through your colds and ouchies.

Soon, you'll get to share the spotlight with a little brother or sister, and I can't wait to see how God is going to use your little sibling to help sanctify you - teaching you about grace, patience, sharing and ultimately about the Lord. I pray that your sibling will love the Bible and people as much as you do! You have so much love to share, and I am delighted that God has blessed us with another person to help us learn about love, life and Him!

We'll all have a lot to learn in the next couple of months (years!), but I pray that the Lord will ultimately help your mommy and daddy become more like Christ. And one day, we pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior too.

*** 38 week update

*still 4cm dilated, feeling more contractions...

*I had my membranes stripped today (not very pleasant) and am currently enjoying the use of my exercise ball to help with the cramping and contractions.

*Hopefully, we'll be able to introduce you to Baby Harms in the next 24-48 hours :)

I love you, beautiful friend! I love this post and how you are already beginning the transition from a mommy of one to a mommy of two! Praying for these next few days that the Lord will meet your every need at the exact moment you feel nothing but despair!
