34 Weeks Along

That leaves about 6!!! WOW.
After a fun weekend at Lake McConaughy, I can officially say that baby likes swimming... even if he/she is only 34 weeks old in my belly. Whenever a wave splashed, there was dancing, or kicking, or, somersaulting with joy :)

Updates:
  • I feel pretty good still, but can barely stand balancing on my right leg anymore. It feels like someone is setting a semi truck on my lower back if I do that... So, when I slip my shorts on or off, or put shoes on, it is super quick! 
  • When baby moves, sometimes I think I might pee my pants. I almost did one morning while camping last weekend... BUT I just made it to the outhouse! PHEW! I still don't have to get up in the middle of the night though. By time 4:30 or 5am rolls around however, I am totally ready. 
  • Baby has an official girl name, and we still can't decide between two boy first names, and then even when we figure that out, it will be deciding the right middle name combo. 
  • Kastenbaby is like an average sized Canteloupe, weighing just about 5 pounds. Baby Center says he or she weighs slightly less. KB isn't going to get too much longer, just fatter, at this point!
  • How your baby's growing: (from babycenter.com)

    Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds (like your average cantaloupe) and is almost 18 inches long. Her fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once she's born — are filling her out, making her rounder. Her skin is also smoother than ever. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well. If you've been nervous about preterm labor, you'll be happy to know that babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.

Having fun when you're not having fun.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
