Well friends, there has been so much hustle and bustle in the past few months that I have unfortunately neglected the blog. Plus, I haven’t been feeling quite myself, which if you’ve talked to me recently you know is because I’m PREGNANT!!!
To say it was a shock might be the biggest understatement ever. It wasn’t expected, definitely wasn’t planned but boy is this baby loved! I think it took me a good 6 weeks to even accept that my sickness and being overly emotional really did mean I was PREGNANT! And it was truly just this past week when I felt baby kick and saw it on our 20-week ultrasound that it all hit me like a ton of bricks. I really, really am pregnant.
It’s seriously incredible to me how God works in very, very mysterious ways. Life has been crazy this last year, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God shows up in my weaknesses. And knowing that I get to raise a little boy suddenly makes me feel very anxious and WEAK!
I recently heard Joyce Meyer say something like God gives a special portion of GRACE to parents to give them the strength and power that they need to raise Godly children. I’m very thankful for that and am trusting that God has a VERY special plan for this baby boy. I know I’ll need a special portion of grace to handle a wild little one running around.
I’m 21 weeks along now and more than halfway done, which is CRAZY for me to think about! Baby Steele should make his debut early June… only 2 weeks after my little sister who is also pregnant too!
Being pregnant has meant a lot of change: I’ll start sharing some of those stories here but more than that it’s a huge perspective shift for me. Thinking about another generation is definitely terrifying but it’s also sobering and fun to think about what I want to teach my little boy.
Thank you to everyone who is just as excited to meet Baby Steele as I am… I know he will be a wide-eyed blonde rascal running around in no time. Until June I’m going to try to get as much sleep in as possible!! 🙂
