hello baby. || week 23

lil raspberry,

this week was a busy week for you!  on top of growing and gaining weight faster than you ever have before, you "helped" shoot 3 portrait sessions + a wedding!  needless to say we were both a little tired by the end of the week, but your sweet daddy took good care of us and rubbed my swollen feet and tired back for as long as i needed him to.

i love having you always with me, little buddy.  throughout this entire pregnancy i've loved seeing all the different aspects of Gods character and truths from His word that are so much easier for me to grasp now that you're a part of my life.  our wise God has woven all kinds of analogies into every day life experiences so that we can better understand how He loves us and wants to relate to us.  never before have i understood so clearly what it means for God to "never leave us or forsake us."  until you.  now i understand so much better because for 6 months we have been inseparable   not just because we have chosen to be, but because it is physically impossible to separate you from me if you are to continue to live.  so we are never apart.  not even for a split second.  not while I'm sleeping, or going to the bathroom, or running an errand real quick, or working.  you are always there with me.  and i love it!  i'm going to miss having you with me constantly after you're born (though that will be a whole different kind of sweetness!) so for now i'm loving getting to carry you with me everywhere i go, and the sweet daily reminder it is to me of the faithfulness and love of God from which i cannot and will not ever be separated!

"For I'm persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor hight nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
