the last couple of weeks

a few weeks ago, we received a package in the mail..a very LARGE package with lots of things for BABY PURSER!! Thank you Ramsay's for sending your love to Piper all the way from Portland...can't wait to put her in these outfits...

Here's just a few of what was in the box...

oh and sorry these are all sideways...i failed to rotate the images, just turn your head slightly to the left.....

the farm brings creatures from high and low...after a heavy rain,Paul found this little guy sitting on my car window...

Piper has been growing and pregnancy pains have too...
But what a blessing this little one is...

30 1/2 weeks update: only 10 more weeks (hopefully less, if the Lord wills)

what is going on with Piper:
+ about 15.7 inches long now
+ she weighs 3 pounds
+A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in the uterus
+Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen
+When she does open them, she'll respond to changes in light but will have 20/400 vision — which means she can only make out objects a few inches from her face. (Normal adult vision is 20/20.)

I definitely know she's growing because the extra weight is taking toll on my back. my eating has slacked off a bit, due to little room in my belly. Now, I must eat many small meals. Weight gain at this point is +22 lbs. wow baby!

im pretty sure i've started "the waddle" and im definitely doing the "hold your back when you get off a couch" move....

Psalm 127:3-5
Behold, children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one's youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.

thank you Lord for our blessing...i can't wait to meet my reward..she's coming in just a few short weeks if it's your will...and oh i hope it is...
