I Can't Help It!

Someone at the store yesterday asked me how much longer I had and when I said 2 1/2 weeks, it was a little shocking! It's not very long! I can't help but be excited when I think of dressing her in cute little outfits. Thanks to Laura for passing on her obsession of owls. I found this shirt at Target and the other picture is what's on some pj's I found at Old Navy.

Super Saturday

I went to my sister's Super Saturday today and made this cute vinyl board. They had the mission president's wife come speak and it was awesome! She had an abusive father and her first husband was abusive, so she talked about how important we are as daughters of God and how we should make sure our husbands and children are treating us as such. She was very adamant about children talking to their mothers with respect. I'm so glad I have a wonderful husband that was raised by a such a great dad who taught him how to be respectful to women. She also made mention of something she wished she had done while her kids were growing up and that was she would shut her bedroom door when she prayed instead of leaving it open. Her point was how important it is for our children to see us praying. The other point that hit me strongly is that a husband and wife have to put in 100% not just 50/50 and how important it is for us to put our husbands first and then our children. She said that you can't make it to the celestial kingdom with just your kids, you have to have your husband and vice versa. It's funny how I knew that but never thought of it like that. I guess I just always assumed that we would put our kids first. I wish I could have recorded her talk. I love it when I feel so spiritually fed!

Unlike my weird sister-in-law, Erin, I do not like being pregnant. It's not quite the party that I thought it was going to be. In some ways I wish I could stay pregnant so that I don't have to go through childbirth and worry about my baby even more. But then I can't wait to hold her in my arms and finally be able to bend over or sit without being in pain. I should just be glad that I only have to be pregnant for nine months instead of two years like elephants! (FYI-I am not convinced that I have a pregnant glow, I think it's from sweating all the time because it's so stinkin' hot!)
