Thanksgiving came and went like the breeze, Christmas will be here in a blink of an eye and then we will be on full baby alert. Sweet friends and family are planning showers and things are coming together. This must really be happening.
The belly is now out in full force and there is no more guessing whether Mrs. Meagan is pregnant or not. The kids reactions at church have been very comical (as have some adults). We have decided not to find out the baby's gender until it arrives so that always leads to a fun conversation and guessing games when talking with friends (boy seems to be the guess for the majority of folks but there are a few who strongly feel the girl vibe - Evan and I have no idea)!
People keep asking us, "Do you hope it's a boy or a girl?" All we can seem to think is "I just hope it's a human." We aren't partial one way or another and feel excited about the possibility of both a boy or a girl. I imagine a boy playing basketball with Evan in the driveway and a girl begging him for something silly and glittery (which he will surely give-in to). I see either sitting behind the drums with him and equally so behind a computer (I just hope that there will be something that I can teach them too).
I often wonder about our child's personality and what they will be like. As you surely know, Evan and I are both pretty loud and spastic so I imagine our child will either be screaming from the start of things or totally mute due to the fact it gets no word or sound in over us.
I am looking forward to seeing our child for the first time, to watching them grow and seeing what the Lord will do in their life. I am excited to be a mom. I am excited that the excited is getting to be more than the freak out (but don't get me wrong, there is still plenty of freak out). My emotions have hit an all time high (God bless those around me) so I assume that this post could totally look different if I were to type it tomorrow.
So, there you have it. There are the ramblings of my brain for this day and here is an up-to-date belly picture for those with an interest in belly pictures.
