Here We Go...

This is it. Today is the day: we're going to the hospital and we'll meet our little boy tomorrow. 

I'd be lying through my teeth if I said I wasn't nervous. In fact, I'm way nervous. Birth scares the ever-living daylights out of me. I'm trying to be all, "I am woman, hear me roar!" but that's not happening. I know my body is made for this, but holy cow, y''s the unknown. I've never done this before. I don't know what it's going to be like. {It's not a day at the spa, that's for sure! Ha!} But I keep reminding myself that millions of women across the world do this and it's going to be okay. 

In fact, it's going to be great. We're leaving our house and we're coming home with a baby. Our baby. Our son. I keep walking around our house and just looking at things, imagining him here. In fact, Brandon walked in his room yesterday and said, "It's really quiet in here."  

I keep thinking about how this baby is a miracle and Psalm 139:13-16 keeps replaying in my mind: 

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in that secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before they came to be." 

He is a true miracle from God, and no matter what, he is beautiful and perfect. And most of all, he's ours. 

 I can't wait to "introduce" him to you via this little blog. 

Thanks for following along for the past nine months, and thanks for all of your sweet comments and kind words. It means more to me than you know.
