5 Weeks and Counting

For those of you who don't know this is my best friend Megan. I have know her, literally, since I was born. She is a year older than me, grew up about an hour and half away, and coincidentally is pregnant with her fourth child, due just 3 days after me. We couldn't have planned it any better. Travis and I did plan this pregnancy, but I have to admit I was more surprised at this pregnancy than the previous two since I had only been off the pill for 2 to 3 weeks. Megan was much more surprised, since she had an appointment for an IUD, only to find it would be postponed for almost another year, because surprise she was pregnant too. She is such a trooper when I would have sobbing, she was genuinely happy about haveing another child. So here we are at the end of our journey, complaining about pregnancy woe's, and there are plenty. I am so very ready to have this baby, between my muscles aching, heart burn, lack of sleep, and all the waddling and squatting my energy fails me quickly every day. I'm on the count down and excited to meet our new little family member.

No matter how old they get I can't resist the sleeping pictures. Such peaceful innocent moments are rare and adorable. I sure love my little guys.


I must confess I am not a good Journal keeper. I've been striving to do better since last conference, and that great talk that was given about writing down your experiences. I know how good it is for you, emotionally and I know it's a commandment, but still it's something I have struggled with. So I am pleased to announce I finally finished this Calla Lilly journal I started in April 2004. Despite the fact that there are a few six month gaps, when I read back I remember things I have long forgotten and am grateful for what was written. I am succeeding with my new journal, making sure there are at least a few entries a week. Hopefully when my grand kids get a hold of this one it will benefit them in some way or another.
