40 weeks pregnant...oh my!
Well, I can honestly say..."I've never been THIS pregnant!" Tomorrow is my official due date. It is also my mother-in-law's birthday. Yesterday was my mom's birthday. So, I was thinking today would be a good day to have a baby...do you think my daughter agrees??? I am starting to think she just doesn't want to come out. She was probably freaked out by the hurricane and now she doesn't want to meet us until our electricity gets turned on. Which, we hear should be by Tuesday! - UGGH! Tuesday?- I really hope to have this baby by then.
We played outside this morning in Moustapha's parents backyard. The boys did a great job playing baseball. And Bakri was amazing at taking turns. It's so fun to see him maturing. (of course, then he will surprise us by doing something totally immature the very next minute!) BUT, that is just kids, I guess...
Every night I go to bed wondering if tomorrow is the day we'll meet our daughter and every morning I wake up and wonder the same thing. When?
Psalm 37:7 says "be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him" and Psalm 40 says "I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry."
I know patience is a virtue. I am praying to be a little more virtuous!
