39 Weeks...

Baby's estimated due date is fast-approaching... Tim's and my anticipation is already here. We are SO excited to meet this baby, and introduce him or her to you, to this world!!! We want to know if we're going to have a boy or a girl. Our names are settled: Boy has a first and middle name, and Girl has a first and middle name. NOW we just want to know which is in my belly.

I'll be taking official votes to guess on boy/girl, height and weight, and arrival days or times if you'd like to participate... Watch soon for that poll!

Tim and I both have our hospital bags packed. I bought some snacks at Target the other day, and now we're just sitting around, being as attentive as possible. I'm tired and achy in my lower back and lower front more each day, but still very mobile and feeling generally well. 

My check up on Thursday went great! Dr. Peters was glad to see that I've progressed. Dilated to 3cm, about 60% effaced (cervix thinning out), and baby has dropped "considerably," getting closer (literally) to making an entrance into our world! She told me she'd be on call Thursday night--seriously considering that I may go into labor at any moment--and that she is guessing baby's small: around 6 or so pounds right now- she thinks under 7lbs. Heart rate was around 130, and my weight (down a lb from last week) and blood pressure are stable & healthy... I measured 39cm over my uterus (belly top to bottom)... right on! Now, it is just the waiting game. I stink at this game.

Your baby's waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, a mini watermelon. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) The outer layers of his skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath.

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!
