Nursery: in progress, finally! We moved the guest bedroom furniture out this week and are getting ready to paint this weekend. It's coming together!

Prayer for Baby: Dear baby girl, you are prayed for every day by us and by so many others! You are already so very loved. I know in my heart that you are going to be just fine - and probably a handful! Every move you make reminds me of the blessing you are. I pray for your health and well-being in the womb before you get ready to make your grand entrance in 12 weeks or less. We love you! Amen
