Baby Leave

Well friends, it's time I say good-bye for a while. Our sweet baby is due any day now and I have a feeling she'll come sooner than later. I can't say for sure when I'll come back to posting as I have no intention of rushing anything during this precious and fleeting time. I'll do my best to pop back in to share a photo of our new love and to announce her arrival since so many of you have very sweetly expressed an interest in her and my pregnancy.

I truly appreciate the warmth and well wishes so many of you have sent my way - thank you for that, your words mean more to me than you know. I'll certainly miss all of your positive and encouraging comments over the coming months, especially since that's when I'm likely to need them most! Wish me luck in this new journey as a mother of two!

I hope you all have a lovely fall season! Blessing, hugs, love and all that good stuff. :)

Mari-Ann

Congratulations and I will pray for a safe delivery and a healthy little one! This is such a special time for your family- enjoy every moment. I remember when we went from 1 to 2 children and it amazed us how "grown up" our first seemed after that! Take care and as always, thank you for all the great posts and ideas. You are such an inspiration.

Sending you all my best wishes Mari-Ann. I have C-sections too, so I know how it goes. Please relax and take care of yourself. I pray to God that your procedure goes well and you enjoy your sweet bundle of joy with your whole family. Take your time and enjoy this period.

You already put up so many things on the blog to explore and learn from the blog for all of us.....As much as we will miss your postings it will give us (atleast me) a chance to catch up on things we may have missed and make our own to do lists from your endless activities :) May God reward you for your big heart. Ameen (That's our Amen! :)) Best regards
