36 Week Bumpdate

36. 36. 36 weeks with Jude!

Size of baby:  6 or so lbs... I don't know for sure :) I am going to ask at my prenatal appointment tomorrow about what they think!!

Symptoms: Lots of pelvic pressure. His head is in position! I am not dilated yet, but my doctor said Jude is right there and that's progress! WOO HOO!

Cravings: Ice Cream Cones and Girl Scout Cookies. Yum!

Something you Miss: I miss Jude. Ha! I say that all the time... I just want to hold him in my arms. So I guess I miss the whole "patience" thing. I definitely am lacking in that lately.


Milestones: Lots of growth - things are ready to go! March is almost here which is a HUGE milestone as it is the MONTH OF OUR DUE DATE!

Looking Forward To: Our last shower on Sunday at my sisters house. It should be a blast - lots of family and friends. I love spending time with lovely ladies so I am looking forward to it!!

Prayer for our baby this week:
Judester - you are such a mover and a shaker in mommy's tummy! I know that is how you are going to be outside the womb also. Your sweet movement means that you are going to have plans and dreams and we just are so excited to see those unfold for you! Next week you are considered full-term and we would LOVE to meet you anytime after that. We love you more than we could possibly express and can't wait to hold you in our arms! God's love for you is RICH and I pray you will always know that. We love you sweet baby boy!

p.s. isn't that onesie and hat cute? I won it from Ooe & Auti on a giveaway. Can't wait to get it! She is awesome - check her facebook page and Etsy out!

I still think you look great! I don't know how I will do when I have to wait and be patient on a baby, ugh. I am always lacking in that area! Praying for you and Jude...

You are such an inspiration to me and so many others. Baby Jude is so blessed to have amazing Godly parents like you and Josh. Take care. Praying for you!

One of my favorite hymns, Children of the Heavenly Father. Be blessed!

Children of the Heavenly Father
Safely in His bosom gather
Nestling bird nor star in heaven
Such a refuge e’er was given
God His own doth tend and nourish
In His holy courts they flourish
From all evil things He spares them
In His mighty arms He bears them

Neither life nor death shall ever
From the Lord His children sever
Unto them His grace He showeth
And their sorrows all He knoweth

Though He giveth or He taketh
God His children ne’er forsaketh
His the loving purpose solely
To preserve them pure and holy

Lo their very hairs He numbers
And no daily care encumbers
Them that share His ev’ry blessing
And His help in woes distressing

Praise the Lord in joyful numbers
Your Protector never slumbers
At the will of your Defender
Ev’ry foe man must surrender.

Such a cute photo. Enjoy the last weeks of that sweet baby belly! I miss mine, as my daughter's now 5 months. Praying for a new swollen belly soon. Take care!
