Change is a Comin'


I feel an autumnal change in the air lately. I love the feel of it, it means my favorite time of year is just around the corner.

I had a surprise on Sunday when I thought my water had broke...at church. It threw me for a loop. At 37 weeks, I'm full term enough to deliver this baby any day now, but I didn't expect things to start happening this early. I delivered Burl 2 weeks late, so I've been expecting the same process and thought I had plenty of time to get things ready. But it seems this little one may come earlier than 2 weeks late. I'm not prepared, I'd like him to grow just a bit more before he arrives. I'll be spending the next few days preparing my home, washing diapers, hanging them to sun dry, and some other smaller preparations. In my heart, I feel like I still have a couple weeks before the birth.


I haven't done so yet, but I think I may share Burl's birth story sometime this week. It's been very private and close to my heart. But I think I'm ready to share.

Happy Tuesday, Friends.

oh Amber, I hope baby'll stay inside, a little longer, and "cook" some more for the big day. You take care & take things as easy as it is possible.
much love

yes, i hope the wee one lets you finish up your preparations before he comes, although i'm sure at the same time you are looking forward to seeing his sweet face.

How exciting! I hope everything goes smoothly. That baby of yours is a very lucky baby indeed to have such a caring momma. s

I'm 39 weeks today and feeling a bit desperate to be done being pregnant... With my last baby I didn't dig the car seat out of the basement or wash all my newborn diapers until I realized I was in labor-- this time I wanted to be more prepared. I washed diapers and made a little corner in my bedroom for the baby-- and now I'm just waiting. I think I like being taken by surprise better than the waiting.
