Today is Ruby's due date!!


Today is Ruby's official due date, but she's still hanging in the belly.  Jason and I are doing great, she's doing great, the dogs are awesome, I'm convinced they know more than I do about when she's coming....and as my Doc (who I worship) said yesterday, PATIENCE is key during this time.  This pregnancy has flown by, I can't grasp that I've been doing this for ten months, when it feels like just yesterday I found out and yet now it feels like a slow motion ride rather than the warp speed one we've been on.

One of the biggest surprises is that pregnancy has done some amazing things for my body:  bet you don't hear that very often :)  My weird Granuloma skin disease has cleared up, which means I'm wearing tank tops for the first time in four years, my hair is thicker than it was in High school, and I've actually been referred to as "small" when people hear how far along I am.   I'm 5'10", size 10-12 and an 10 1/2 shoe, being "small" and "pregnant" is just something I never dreamed of.   It seems superficial, and it more than likely is, but I'm not gonna lie, I've enjoyed it!!!  Oh yes, and there's going to be a baby in my arms in a matter of days, that of course is the biggest blessing of them all. That's going to be blow my mind!!

I hope you're well and enjoying the summer.  Thank you so much for reaching out, saying prayers and being a blog friend.

Next post will be some baby news!!



  1. Wow! Lady, you make this look so easy!

    I'm really happy y'all are good and things are moving along. I'm 5'8" and a 12. That will change soon, though!

    Have you done any cool nesting projects? Are you ok with receiving a baby blankie from a digital well-wisher? It's more like a hand-embroidered burp square. I make them from time to time.

    Well, have fun these next few days. Tell your husband to carry around a pound sack of flour for a few hours a day to break in his kid-carrying muscles & his shoulders. It helps!

    Tell stories soon,

  2. HI Angela, Yes of course I would be happy for a homemade burp cloth from you. That's very sweet.

    Thank you!

  3. Ok! I'll send it along. Will most likely make Tuesday mail, MN-->CA should arrive by say Saturday week.


  4. You are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait until she's here!

  5. I mailed it this week and it should get there soon! I worry about your address on the Internet, so if you delete it now it will be okay.


    What a cool adventure you've shared so far!
