We Meet Him Tomorrow
The gestation period of this quilt has been just as long as the gestation period of this baby. But I'm happy that in these last few moments before baby comes, I was able to sit & hand stitch the binding on as part of my relaxing time. I started this quilt before I even knew if we were having a boy or a girl. I started this quilt when I was still very worried & scared about the baby's early development & growth. Would this baby survive? I was scared, but also so excited & happy.
It feels like this has been the longest pregnancy of my life & once again I sit feeling scared & worried. This time about the hospital & needles & surgery & pain & how my girls will be while I'm away & if this baby will be healthy & well. And once again I'm working on the same quilt. Perhaps I needed this quilt to sit on the shelf until this very time when I would need to keep my hands busy in order to keep my mind clear.
Early tomorrow morning we head to the hospital. We will keep you posted on the baby's arrival. I've already put Dylan on assignment to update the blog, but it may be a day later. We do not have fancy phones or laptops or iPads. Might be best to check my twitter feed, since that is the only place I send status updates from my phone.
I have asked some awesome bloggers to come by & guest post for me while I am in the hospital & during the first few weeks home with the baby. They are all amazing & lovely women who have put together some seriously cool posts for you during my leave. You will not want to miss out! The guest posts will start appearing on the blog as of tomorrow. Please be the dears that you are & welcome them well. Comment on their posts & visit their websites to say hello. Won't you please?
I will be popping in every now & then with photos of the babe & updates as our family works through this awesome change. I probably don't say it enough, but thank you for reading my blog! I have the sweetest readers & I'm so glad that I can share my life & connect with such great friends through this blog.
