Wishing, and Hoping, And Thinking, and Praying

That is what I've been doing. For several months now, actually.

We've been trying to conceive for 4 months without success. I'm not saying I'm worried. I know God's doing everything in His time. I just can't help but feel wistful, though.

Now that I have an adorable little niece to visit, I want a child of my own more than ever.

I spend my free time talking to my Lord, trying to make my feelings known without sounding demanding. It isn't always easy. Maybe it's just the hormones talking. I mean, I'm only 25. Plenty of women have been even older than I am before they had their first child. I still have plenty of time, right?

I know I should be patient. I know I should be "enjoying my free time while I still have some". I love my husband. I love our life together. I just think we have so much love, it would be a shame to not have someone else to share it with.

I will be still. I will be patient. I know you will do what's best Lord. I'm patiently waiting on you.

A New Chapter

As many of you may know, Keith and I promised we would wait until our 5th anniversary to have kids of our own.

And as many of you may know, anniversary #5 is just around the corner.

And as many of you may know, I like being prepared. So I need your help.

I need advice. Whatever advice you can give me. Everything I need to know about pregnancy, pretty much. I wanna know what to expect so I can be as prepared as possible.

Tell me what your must-have baby items are.
What advice best helped you get through your own pregnancies?
What are the best books I can read?
How can I keep my hubby involved in the whole process?
What am I in for emotionally and physically?

Whatever you want to give me, I'm ready to listen. So, bring it on, people! Hit me with your best shot!

Starting Fresh

I can't believe it's been a year since I've written in my blog. I took a hiatus because life got crazy. Really crazy. And I don't think it's going to get any less crazy any time soon. But working night shift has actually opened up my schedule for more time to post than I had before. And I think now is as good a time as any to start getting my thoughts on paper. Or internet, as the case may be. So, here we go again. I'll try to stick with it this time.
