a change in schedule

So this morning I'm sitting staring into space thinking, "I really wish I could take a shower NOW instead of after I do the dishes and make the bed and tidy everything up and my exercises." And then I laughed aloud to myself... "of course I can shower first! I'm a grown woman, totally home alone for the day. I could shower ten times if I wanted to!" And so I showered first thing this morning, with dirty dishes still in the sink. Rebel that I am.

I also realized that I should probably embrace the whole make-your-own-schedule-thing, because in 15 short weeks, my schedule will be totally determined by a itsy little human with no knowledge of "the order in which I like to do things everyday."

My hands

as if by instinct go protectively over my womb.

When searching for fun pregnancies pics and/or useful information online I inevitably stumble onto info and pictures about abortion.

We live in a sick world.

All these poor people, going against everything, everything that comes naturally to them as mothers and fathers. Allowing some doctor to invade what should be the Safest of Places with a needle or forceps or poison. Paying for it to be done. Heartbreaking.

Marantha Lord Jesus! Come and end it.

"Boom, boom, boom!

Mr. Brown is a wonder!
Boom, boom, boom!
Mr. Brown makes thunder!"

I can't wait to watch the storm with my little guy.

Boy Wonder

Zeke is doing some serious gymnastics. Feels really weird.

Future superhero? I think so.

Of a world embracing every heartache...

Just found out another of our friends have ended their marriage. So sad.

"...To turn away and not become
Another nail to pierce the skin of One who loves
More deeply than the oceans,
More abundant than the tears
Of a world embracing every heartache.
World apart..."

when it rains...

It's crazy how years slip by with life staying pretty much the same... the first three years of our marriage were happy and boring. Not too much changed, and we were fine with that.

And then, this year: we both quit our jobs, BeefyGeek found a new one, I went back to school, we moved, we got pregnant, I'm going to graduate, and we're going to have a baby, all from one August to another. What a year.
