nora haddie

our beautiful baby girl arrived on october 12 at 3:42pm. 
what a blessing and delight she has been.

we thank God for choosing us to raise her and pray he will guide us every step of the way. we pray she will come to know our sweet Savior at a young age and grow to become a Godly woman who strives to please our Heavenly Father in every area of her life. we know that she is on loan to us, and pray that we hold her with trusting open hands. what a miracle she is, and a great reminder of how magnificent a Creator we serve. 
we praise the Lord for this miracle we get to call our sweet nora.

behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth.
blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!
psalm 127:3-5a

{37 weeks}

how far along? 37 weeks
weight gain? about 25lbs
maternity clothes? of course! it's what's comfortable!
stretch marks? none {so far}
sleep?  i sleep really well...really like a rock because i'm exhausted right now, accept i have to get up multiple times a night for the bathroom
best moment this week? it really wasn't this week, but at 36 weeks, we had to have another ultrasound because my belly is measuring 3 weeks behind. so, we got to see nora one more time before we meet her in person. everything is fine with her, though. she's just really low, which is making me measure small, and she's not a very big baby
gender? girl
movement? oh definitely! she's quite the mover...still with lots of hiccups!

cravings? i don't really have any cravings, really i'm tired of eating!
labor signs? those not so fun braxton hicks
belly button in or out? oh, it's out alright...i don't think it can go any further...which is weird because mine never popped out when i was pregnant with jude, and i was 10lbs bigger with him!
what i miss? just not being uncomfortable all the time! 
what i'm looking forward to? meeting nora! and seeing how jude will react with his little sister.

i didn't have this blog when i was pregnant with jude, so this picture is just for fun...
the left is when i was 37 weeks pregnant with jude...whoa is all i can face was chubby!
