Babies! Babies! Babies!

Currently, babies are popping up everywhere in my life except for the little one in my belly!

It all started in February with Caitie and Olive...I cannot believe she is already 6 months old and so so adorable and fun! Then, another Caiti - roommate from college - had her sweet little Hayley! Shortly after that one of my dearest friends from college Stephanie and her hilarious husband Nick, had baby Addison - who I am dying to meet! Then came the few boys: Kelsey with Declan and Carly with Tucker, what handsome little men! A past coworker and friend had her second little girl, Allie, up in Alaska. Now, my best CA friend, Nicci, has her little Bryndal Lane, and she is just so sweet and beautiful! I'm also waiting to hear from my friend and neighbor, Rebecca, and the arrival of her little one (who was due last week!). Then, my very own family grew with the addition of Jacob Timothy Wauhop to Tim and Joni! What a chubby cutie, 9lbs, 9oz and 22 inches long!! I cannot wait to see him at Christmas! And, I still have several more pregnant friends, ready to bring their bundles of joy into the world within the next 4 or 5 months! What an exciting time!!

Here is my new nephew!! Looking so handsome and big-cheeked with his hard working mommy!!

So, now, Robert and I are basically dying to meet our Maggie Grace! Seriously, she is just moving and rolling and dancing around inside of me 24/7 and I just want to see her face...and fingers and feet and nose and belly and everything! I want to hold her in my arms, and not in my belly anymore, haha! (not to mention, I could definitely go for a nap on my stomach!!) I'm making my way through this 32nd week, and praying for the next 7 or so to come quickly! What a blessing all these new lives are! God is so kind to bless so many we love with the gift of life, adding to our quivers and adding to our joy which is always full in Him!

"Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures." James 1:17-18
