This week we will most likely have a new member of the family come join us "down here." I feel really blessed to be a mom and have another sweet gift sent to us. I also feel really blessed that Heavenly Father knows me REALLY well. He gave me extra time to get ready for the baby and to have some peaceful, relaxing time with just Sam, Will and Ellie.
In between the relaxing and peaceful moments I've had to deal with some growing kids. We are learning a lot. Will has been extra emotional, grumpy, tant-trum-y, and just obnoxious. This also sets off Ellie (who was the more emotional one before). Last night Sam talked with Will and Will told us that he was worried that baby weston would give mommy too much to do...he gave examples like, getting him in the car seat, and diapers... and even more, he was worried the baby would get into his little toys too much (I've been prepping him to always remember to put the little toys away so baby can't eat them...). Oh wow. my Sweet little Will. I assured him that for the first few months the baby can't even move, so the toys won't be a problem. And I made a secret promise to myself that I'll need to make sure to "share my time." The real emotions of kids are starting...the heart wrenching ones!! I need to stay strong and get stronger, cuz I know those puberty years are even harder! I love my kids so much- they give sam and I the greatest joy and happiness we've ever had-- we've created these little guys, we are responsible for them, they are children of God.
Today I was dilated to a 3. I've asked to be induced this weekend if he hasn't come yet. But I'm determined to make him come Thursday or Friday. Why then do you say?? Because Sam really wants to participate in a golf tournament for REC's team on Thursday morning. Yep, can someone punch him again for me? And we've asked to be induced this weekend if Weston has not come...I'll be 40 weeks and 4 days by then...but I'm also going to go by how I feel...induction is the last choice. This has been quite the entertaining waiting game. But the time is almost here:)
