I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

I was lying in the bath last night and could not have been more at peace.
Lying there feeling my little baby girl kick and move around in my belly.
Staring at the hard bump at the bottom of my belly, and rubbing it knowing she was just inside.
So hard to believe that she is in there.
Listening to my sounds.

It makes me sad to know this is the last time I will experience this. But Glad that I am able to soak it all in....and glad I've been given this one last time.

Aw - so beautiful. . . I have a lump in my throat and I'm getting teary. . .

Lovely post. It's times like these when I feel so fortunate to have carried my babies and had the experiences of giving birth and loving them so-o-o-o much. . .

Yay for another girl!

Also, what a blessing to be able to feel her move. I think it makes it so much more real to imagine that she'll someday be a part of your family =)
