Six Hundred Thirty Eight Through Six Hundred Fifty Four

Is it just me or does Monday come around awfully quick these days?! We have about three more weeks of super busy before we begin our intentional slow down in anticipation of the baby. At least that's the line I'm telling myself. The truth is we probably just trade one crazy activity for another, but I'm in denial. Thankfully, the summer won't be far off when the baby comes, because he's going to pretty much have to hit the ground running. Three older siblings aren't going to sit around and watch him sleep!

Much of the last week seems a blur in my mind. I really think my brain is deteriorating into mush a little early this time. I'm finding it harder and harder to concentrate. I guess that means I'll return to my normal self around August or September. In the meantime, the least I can do is continue to count those blessings.


638. it's still a good pregnancy with no complaints other than being tired. I'm counting this blessing each and every day because I know where I could be.

639. Carrie's dinner entertainment, made mostly of very expressive faces that crack us up

640. that the latest bug the older kids picked up has been extremely short lived

641. a job that is flexible enough for me to come in two hours late when I have a sick kid

642. race car fun for Brenna and Daniel, and that both were well enough to go

643. opportunities for Brenna

644. a very successful spaghetti dinner charity event at the kids school

645. being challenged to a new understanding of Scripture

646. milkshakes

647. ordering new gadgets for my mixer with my bread money

648. ordering 240 lbs. of wheat!

649. that moment every day when Michael walks in the door

650. walking upstairs and seeing that Daniel's room is still so neat and orderly

651. giving a friend a loaf of bread

652. that Carrie's goose egg from falling into the corner of the fridge went down so quickly

653. my homemade bread, toasted, buttered, covered in honey and reheated

654. the amazing designs of the ice on my windshield this morning

So I'm guessing #4 is a boy?

I was going to say the same thing that Wendy said!
