The way God works..

Just a thought on one of the mysterious ways God works. Our little girl is due to arrive any day now... while we were told today that they don't think my great grandma will make it through the day. At tops this weekend. It seems like God often takes one of His out of this world, while at the same time gracing us with another. As a replacement? I don't know... Just kinda funny how it works. Maybe it will help ease the pain for my grandma, losing her mother of 93 years but gaining a grand-child. My great-gramma has had a very rough year... she's been in and out of the hospital almost all last year, just old age got the best of her. She's lived a very long, very blessed life. And there is no doubt where she is going. She is the kind of woman that, for as long as I can remember, wore her 'Jesus' pin and would ask random strangers if they knew Jesus and had Him in their lives, and continue to witness to them. The kind of woman that when horrible things would happen, or scary things have happened to her.... she would just tell you when you asked how she got through it. 'I just prayed... and I knew I was safe' is what she would tell you. I could never explain her 150% committment and love for her God, she is probably the only woman I've met in my entire life that you just feel God's love through. She radiates Him! So I have a peace with her dying.... it's been a long year for her, and she gets to go Home now. I just want my grandma to be ok and be able to let her go...
My sister got to talk to her for a minute today and said that she thinks God is taking her mom and blessing our family with Savannah at the same time for a reason..... God always has a reason.
I'm curious to see when Savannah will be born and my great-grandma will be taken home....

One week till D-Day

So I had a doctors appointment this morning, and I'm totally bummed. I am exactly one week from our due date, but for some reason I had it in my head that she would arrive this week. Just the way I've been feeling emotionally and physically. Well the doctor said there aren't any changes, that I'm still barely dilated a 1, that my cervix is only partially open, that my cervix just started to soften and thin.... he could've made that clearer to me last week. I had my hopes up that at this weeks check up, we would have made some serious progress! He was only able to partially strip my membranes today, and now I've got some serious cramping and bleeding going on. Just another fun thing to add to the way I've been feeling the past week. Ohh... and to top it off... he thinks she very well could be up to a week late. :0) Think she's going to maybe have just a streak of her momma's stubborness in her??? We tried for 5, yes FIVE, weeks to do a 3D ultrasound, and she never wanted to behave. Now she wants to be late... little turd. She just wants to make a grand appearance, that's all.

Well, my little Savannah-girl, mommy and daddy are anxiously awaiting your arrival.... so anytime the princess would like to show her cute little face is fine by me. You'll be worth the wait.....

Me at 39 weeks

Help fellow bloggers?

So I tried adding some pictures to my previous blog by going to edit. I got the pictures on there, but they posted at the top of all my writing, I wanted them posted at the bottom. And it won't let me copy and paste the writing above the pictures. Help??

My Very First Blog

So I have a few friends that have blogs, and I absolutely love reading them. It's a great way to stay connected and see what's going on in their lives. I thought, what the heck? Why not start my own blog? So here I am. Starting my own blog before my life gets too chaotic to sit at the computer and figure out how.
A little about me... I am 27 years old and have been married to the man of my dreams for a little over 2 years now. I am a Registered Nurse at Mercy Medical, and have worked on the surgical floor for a little over a year. My husband is a CSM for Schwans, and has been there for... geez, it'll be 3 years this summer. Our life is pretty wonderful actually. =) We've lived in our home for a couple years now with our chihuahua Max (who secretly is the main man in my life) and our cat Chester (whom I just HAD to rescue from Haven Humane, and who loves Bobby 10x more than he loves me). We are also expecting our first addition to our family in, ohhh about 2 weeks!! A little girl. A little princess to be exact. She isn't even here and she already needs an addition to her room! (she'll have to talk to papa about that one... him and mimi are the ones doing all the spoiling) Her room is so pink, and so girlie, and so perfect. We go in there at night and just go through all her little things, like we haven't gone through them 1,000 times already. Our bags are packed, her bag is packed, the carseat is in the car... we're just waiting now! I can't wait to see and hold and kiss this beautiful little girl that God created, and chose Bobby and myself to be her parents. Such an awesome responsibility...

Well thats my life in a nutshell. I think that might be considered too long to be a blog? I'm not sure about the whole blog etiquette just yet... but I'll get there.
