Nesting, sort of
I’m in unchartered waters, nesting for someone else!!
My good friend Erin has asked me to be her birth coach… she was due on Sunday the 26th… so, any day now! So, I find myself looking at my home with an extra-critical eye making sure all my ducks are in a row for me to be able to leave on short notice…
God is good, and the baby will come when it’s the right time. I actually like the heightened sense of, “Any time now!!” I’m not tense/nervous at all… I’m just eager with anticipation!!
Audrey was eight days past my EDD, which were surely the longest days of my life. 🙂
So, if you think of it, pray for a good labor for Erin, who has never done this before!! I have been present at a few births, but never as a “real” coach, so please pray that I remember helpful things at the appropriate times, and that I am able to encourage and bring peace. Having hiked with Erin up a mountain, I am confident in her ability to have perseverance and strength for the long haul, but… the shorter the “long haul” the better!
By the way, I did some sewing for the baby’s room. Here’s a valance I made:
And look at this AMAZING dresser, made for the baby by Erin’s dad:
The room’s all ready, so is Erin and her hubby. Now, all we need is a baby!!
