(These are my private journals from my 1st pregnancy.) Only nine weeks left and he’ll be here! It’s getting closer and closer, but the time seems to be creeping by slower and slower. This week, I spent hours and hours on the baby room. I was up until 3:00 a.m. painting animals on the walls. My girlfriends helped me start the project weeks ago, but I put a lot more time into it than I’d expected. It’s looking really cute! I’ve got a big happy elephant, a mommy and baby giraffe, and two frisky monkeys running down a tree limb. They all match the Zanzibar crib set we have.
I never thought a little baby could consume so much of my thoughts, but I find myself constantly thinking about him and praying for him. I am praying that he will be healthy and have a strong immune system against disease and illness. I’m also praying he will have inner peace and calmness.
