As time is narrowing down, I am getting more and more excited to meet Miss Harper.  I know she is going to be beautiful and perfect and we will love her more than life itself.  However, I am a little sad also.  I have really, really enjoyed being pregnant.  Don't get me wrong, I am going to really enjoy breathing normally and my feet not swelling.....but I think I am really going to miss being able to feel her move and to know that I am bringing a life into this world!  

In four short weeks (at the max), we will be a "family"!!!  I can not tell you how excited this makes me!  I can't wait for everyone to meet her and for Brandon and I to begin this new journey together.  He is going to be the best daddy!!!  I am so lucky to have him!  It's scary because we have a huge job on our hands.....I want to raise a daughter who is beautiful on the inside and who loves everyone and treats others well.  I want her to be thankful for what she has and not want for things that she doesn't need.  I want her to love the Lord and to love going to church.  I want her to be a good girl and to love her momma and daddy and our families! :)  I want so much for her and I finally have a glimpse into what my parents meant when they used to say "I want more for you than I had."  Even though it seems near impossible to ever be able to give Harper more than my parents gave me, I think that is every person's goal....they always want better for their kids!  As I said, we have a HUGE job on our hands......but we are READY!!!  

We receive emails weekly telling us what's changing, how she should be growing, and how our lives should be changing.  This should be Harper at 35 weeks........ Brandon said she looks like she doesn't have any room!  Bless!  

Hope everyone has enjoyed this beautiful day!  I'll be sure and update tomorrow after our dr's appt. and let you know how much Harper has grown in the last few weeks!

I remember feeling that way when I was pregnant with April. After that I couldn't wait til they came out!!! But my all 3 of my pregnancies were pretty good.
I know you can't wait. I am excited for you.
Looking forward to a dr. update!!

I'm glad to see that someone cares HOW their child turns out and not just worrying about making it through their childhood! I've always seen raising kids as a journey. At the end of it, I want to see my kids not just with a lot material possessions, but with good morals and values that I gave them. I want to see them do great things with their lives, not just giving them everything they want and ruining them because you "love them so much you just can't say no!" (Sorry bad day! lol) I'm glad to see that someone shares my opinion about raising babies to be good adults!!
