^^^a beautiful spring evening, a happy four year old, trees filled with pink blossoms? does it get better?^^^
what to even say about life these days. it is so good right now. we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our son. at the same time, mark and i have both been taking advantage of one on one time with hallie, enjoying the freedom she allows us. sure we can stop the car to see if the "popcorn" on that tree smells good! (it did.)
hallie is so excited for her baby brother to be born. yesterday she said, "right now there is only one kid in our family. but soon there will be another kid! and i am so decided!" (decided = excited.) she prays for him nightly and keeps asking if my tummy is going to get even bigger!
we are checking things off our "to do before baby" list almost daily, i've been perusing this website to try to find a name we agree on, and mark has been picking up tiny car toys. there is still much to do in the next month, but boy, does having a lot to do make the time go extra fast. the weeks have been flying and sometimes i even wish it would slow down. i will miss being pregnant, but i get butterflies every time i think about meeting our little dude.
