Soooo...when IS this baby coming anyway?!

Well, you are probably asking the same question I am. When Lord?! I hit the 41 week mark yesterday and still no sign of baby Horsman. I had Emma just 2 days shy of my 42nd week and I was really hoping that it was just because she was my first, but it appears that my midwife is correct..."You just bake them longer!" Physically I feel great. The hardest part has been trusting the Lord's perfect timing because my mom has been here since the 14th and flies home on the 29th (next Wednesday - exactly 2 days shy of 42 weeks!) I would so much love to have her here for the birth. We continue to pray for the Lord's perfect timing and sooner than later if that is His will! Regardless of when this baby comes it has been so good to have Mom here. We have had lots of time to talk, work on projects, and clean out Goodwill :-) (not to mention the fact that Emma loves her Grammie and took to her from the very start!)

Thank you so much for your prayers. We know that God will do what is best!

Waiting... :-)

We are officially one week away from my due date and more than ready to meet the new Horsman! We thought maybe our little one was coming last week but then everything stopped. My mom arrives on Tuesday (the 14th) so my prayer is that the baby will come right about the same time as her. Emma was two weeks late so we are praying that this one won't be, not only because I am more than ready, but because my mom will be here for two weeks and we don't want her to miss out on time with the new little one. We know that our God is in total control and knows all of the factors involved. I am so grateful that we can trust Him!

Emma thought she would try out the baby carseat :-)

Emma's first time in one of the fun grocery carts!!! Can you tell that she LOVED it?!

Our little ham...

...or as I often call her, my ham-and-1/2!
