6.5 more weeks and counting

I totally cannot believe we are getting close to having baby sophia here! Tonight after dinner, I had to put my shirt over my belly because it sophia was squirming so much and Ava said, "Baby!" Then, she tried to lift her shirt up as well!

Sophia has been extremely active. She really gets the party started around 10 pm and doesn't stop until 1 a.m. or so. Needless to say, I am a little worried about sleep during the first month or so.

I really don't know why, but it still doesn't seem real that we are going to have two kids in December.

To get ready, I have been making double portions of our meals so that we will not have to cook so much when we are sleep deprived. Today I made baked manicotti and stuffed shells and froze two of them. I also put stickers on top so Brandon can pop it in without asking me what temperature they have to go in.

I also starting washing Ava's little newborn onesies and sleepers. Can I just say i about freaked out when I saw those little onesies? It made it all so real! gulp.

I went through three big tubs of clothes that Ava used to wear. She had so many clothes and now it seems we can't keep up with her! She is already growing out of her 18 month clothes (she's 21 months).

Anyways, please pray for us (well, me that I don't go into hyper nesting mode). Also, if you have time you can pray for us that:
  • Ava starts sleeping better at night and has less nightmares (pretty common for her age since she is developing so fast)
  • My shortness of breath and nausea are easier to handle
  • Brandon's harvest bash room at Vineyard turns out great and that tons of kids from the community accept Jesus and want to come back!

I'm so excited for you guys! How great that you can reuse all of Ava's stuff! And what a great idea to make extra meals ahead of time...I'll keep that one in mind!
