39 Weeks

I really need to stop reading/ watching birth stories
because I'm so emotional these days I start bawling every time I do.
 It's just so amazing to watch and know that will be me soon.
It seems like every tv show I watch there is a baby born so that doesn't help either. :)

My first contractions of the pregnancy happened this week.
Just a couple of irregular ones, but it's nice to know I'm making progress
and my body is getting ready! At my appointment they also said I'm a good 2 now.
We will just continue to wait and try to be patient!

Here is my thankful list for this past week...

Day 3: I'm thankful for cameras and all the memories they capture. 
I love going through photos and remembering the highlights of life. 

Day 4: I'm thankful for thoughtful and caring people.
 It's so easy to be busy with our own lives, 
but I really appreciate people who 
are good at stopping to think of and serve others. 
It's something I hope to get better at. 

Day 5: One year ago, on November 5, 2013 
we found out our 1st baby no longer had a heartbeat. 
It was one of the hardest times I've gone through thus far, 
but I'm so thankful for trials and the experience they give me. 
And now we have this "rainbow baby" after the storm. 

Day 6: I'm thankful for Landon.
He is such a hard worker and great friend to me.
He has worked full time, gone to law school full time,
and started a branch of his business in Iowa, all in this last year.
This has allowed me to stay home and fulfill my
dream of starting my own design blog and business.
I love him more than anything
and can't imagine being married to anyone else. 

Day 7: I'm thankful for the holiday season.
As much as I love summer,
I love the sights, sounds, smells, and feeling of this time of year.

Day 8: I'm thankful for good food.
Who doesn't love food. Our life basically revolves around it.
Fresh produce, yummy salads, dinner from your favorite restaurant. Yum.

Day 9: I'm thankful for art and creativity.
It makes my life richer and fuller and
I'm thankful to be blessed with talents in these areas.
