Well, here we are. It’s the end of the semester and classes are in high gear.
Thanksgiving has come and gone.
November is draining away…
We’re within a month of Christie’s due date and we’re starting to put the final pieces in place before this kid arrives.
We haven’t put the car seat in yet but we’re packing up the bags, buying the little diapers and mentally getting ready to not sleep… for a month plus.
We’ve done this before so there is less mystery than our first round but it’s also fantastically exciting as we will soon get to meet this child we’ve been hoping and praying for!
On a different note:
It’s been fun to consider what Mary would have been going through during this time in her pregnancy with Jesus.
(I realize that Jesus most likely wasn’t actually born on Dec 25th)
I’d assume that they had a good idea of when Jesus was due. Was he early or did they expect him on the trip to Bethlehem?
It’s fun to imagine!
I will probably get a chance to post again before our kid comes but if not – see you on the other side! 🙂
