Just for Me

Photobucket

I pull out the boxes with all the saved baby things. Booties, onsies, sleepers, and sundresses. All so tiny - I can't remember any of my babes being so little!

I wash them all, reminiscing of the times Emma wore them and daydreaming of the upcoming times that you will wear these same, adorable, pieces of clothing - realizing how blessed you already are. How blessed we all are!

I place each item, clean and folded, in your drawers, thinking of you and becoming more and more anxious!

Your bed is made. Sheets washed and smelling baby clean. Emma placed the baby doll that she bought for you in the corner of your crib. The doll is all smiles, as we all are, awating for your arrival! I just pulled the fresh smelling, clean diapers from the dryer and a smile comes across my face! I cannot wait to see your little tush wrapped up in soft cloth!

A few handmade mama knits and sewn mama made items have been finished and are waiting to be worn. Each item created just for you out of love from me! Each stitch had you in mind. How fun it was to sit and watch each bootie, hat, and dress, come to life as each knitted and sewn stitch was made. 

And in just a few weeks {2 weeks 6 days!} I will get to see the handmade blessing that God created just for me. Each thread of your beauty He created with His Almighty hands out of love for me! You are His treasured possesion and He is trusting you to me! Just as He has done before with Emma and Caleb. How am I so blessed?

"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." ~ Psalm 139:13-16

Tears of joy flood my eyes every morning as I pray for you, your sister, and your brother. How I love each of you so much! Your daddy and I are not rich at all according to the world's standards, but we are rich beyond imagination with the gifts God has given us named Emma, Caleb, and you, sweet baby girl! Your presence is already abundant in our home and it hasn't even graced it yet!

Today I will sit poolside, watching Emma and Caleb splash around in the coolness of the water on yet another hot summer day, knitting a little sweater, for you, to wear when the weather cools this fall! Thinking all the while of you and how very anxious we all still are!

Soon baby girl!! And I am all smiles!! I simply cannot wait!!


God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth." ~ Genesis 1:22


Linking up with Lydia!

  2. Last year Psalm 139 was everywhere--from homeschool science to reading others blogs--funny how so many of us hold onto the same things without knowing.

    Be Blessed.
