8 Jun

Sometimes you hit a spot in life where everything around you is sweet! These moments come often but most times we fail to realize we’re standing in the middle of a sweet spot and before we can even recognize it the moment passes. Currently the sweetness around my family is so amazing that it would be more difficult to ignore it!

Within the next two months my family gains two new family members!! Everyday I wake up to a HUGE reminder (my belly) of the blessing coming soon to us next month and we’re so thankful that this month we’ll be celebrating my brother’s fiancé coming into our family! It’s making for a very busy time for our family but we wouldn’t trade it for the world!

June is packed with last minute doctor’s appointments, birth classes, traveling, bridal and baby showers, lots of time with family and friends, and the wedding coming at the end of the month! I can’t believe my brother is going to be someone’s husband by the time I climb back onto a plane to head back to Florida! I’m so very thankful for the woman God brought into his life and couldn’t be more proud of David’s choice in wifey. Rachel is one of the sweetest women you will ever come across and all of us can’t wait for her to officially be in the family! My only fear is that my bridesmaid dress won’t continue to zip as we get closer and closer to their big day! (Haha.) It’s going to be a whirlwind of a month and I’m so thankful my doctor cleared me to travel as I will be pushing the limits of my cut off! I will be traveling back home exactly a month out from my due date! I don’t think we could have cut it closer if we tried!

I don’t even want to talk about the following month because my anxiety is getting so high as we now approach delivery but I can not wait to meet my darling son!! Thank goodness there is such a reward that comes after child birth otherwise I don’t think I could keep my sanity knowing that pain is around the corner! Once we get back from Grand Junction we will have a few weeks to get settled back in and then my mom will show up on the 17th to help us prep and wait for “Smalls” to make his entrance into the world! It’s all getting so real as I look at our calender and realize all the things that seemed so far off are now getting crossed off the list! Each new day brings us closer to being parents!! It’s amazing and scary all at the same time. My excitement by far outweighs my fears though so I think that’s a good sign! EEK!

I am so thankful for the sweet spot I’m standing in and praise God for all the blessings He continues to pour down on us!

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.” -Psalm 34:8
