smiles and tears.


So many emotions and thoughts are running through my head these days as we plan for Si's arrival in about a month or so. To say I feel blessed is such an understatement. There are countless instances that make me smile as I choke back tears at the same time.

Lots of sweet friends have sent me and Silas adorable presents in the past week or so. Amy of Amy Cornwell Jewelry Designs surprised me with this beautiful necklace! I cried upon opening it -- both because of the generosity of friends and because I'm just so excited about our growing family. Thank you Amy!



This song by Christina Perri makes me choke up every time I hear it, thinking about my baby boy. The chorus says "Every day, I have died waiting for you, Darling don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years. I'll love you for a thousand more." When Chris listened to it the first time, he said "It sure feels like we've loved him for that long, huh?"

It sure does. 

Chris and I talk every day about the imminent arrival of our guy. I love hearing the excitement in his voice as we talk about what life will be like on "the other side". Thinking about him holding Si and watching him love on him makes me tear up and my heart swell with pride and love for this man. He's going to be such an amazing papa.

  7. One of my best friends walked down the aisle to that song. It even happened right at the time the song sings "one step closer". Such a powerful song.

    Love reading your blog and getting so excited to "meet" your little man! :)

I had my second little dude coming up on a year here soon (Aug 3) so it's been fun re-living some of your pregnancy ups and downs on here. I have to tell you that your devotion to God is beautiful, and the fact that you're not afraid to post it on here too.
