Fresh air and fresh views does a mind/heart good.
Had some footie jammie assistants tonight as I made banana bread. I promise Jane had more fun than it looks. Savoring these quarantine waiting-for-baby days with my first two babies. #jane_elisabeth #samuel_owen
I sure wouldn’t have picked a global pandemic as the opportune time to bring a baby into the world, but at 39 weeks pregnant here we are. There have been some disappointments and new anxieties filling my head at a time when I already would have been anxious enough as it is. But I am also feeling grateful and hopeful. I am sad that my mom and sisters can’t be there for the delivery and that family, my kids included, won’t be able to visit baby girl at the hospital. But I’m thankful that I’ve already experienced a delivery with just Philip and I - at least we will (hopefully!) have a midwife this time! My heart goes out to all the first time mommas delivering right now. And even though we won’t be able to have any hospital visitors it will be such a special time to bond and soak her up for just Philip and I. I’m of course concerned for my little one’s health, but that would have been the case no matter what. Thankfully this virus does not seem to •specifically• target babies or children. I am so looking forward to having her here with us. I can’t think of a better distraction from all the negativity out there. Bring on the newborn cuddles! Even though the uncertainty of the months to come feels a little scary, I know that the one who knit this precious baby girl together in my womb is the one who is in control and I can cast all my anxieties to. All that said, we are so ready for you baby girl. Mommy can’t wait to hold you in my arms! 💖 . “I don't have to carry All the things that weigh my heart down...

It’s St. Patrick’s Day and the world feels a bit crazy right now, so why not share an Ireland latergram. 🍀 #psirishadventure
Excitement is building, baby girl. I *think* we finally settled on your name. Now if only I knew if we were days..., weeks..., a month?! away from your arrival, that would be 👌
