What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

In the Waiting



How do you like my belly button?  And Tiddle's large foot giving me a kick?!

 









December 20th came and went and no Tiddle.  I am officially overdue.  

So.... we wait. 

And while we wait, we add glitter to edges and tie up with string.  We cut paper and glue gifts and sew ric rack and bring down quilts and make a new chalkboard signs and string ribbon candy ornaments.  We toss around too many baby names, we drown our sorrows with too much cocoa and we hum Christmas carols all day long.  

 I rediscovered this bonnet at the bottom of the basket where it was buried in frustration after ripping out the fair aisle portion THREE TIMES!  I decided I might as well give it one more go before it is too late to fit a Tiddle, if Tiddle happens to be a girl.  I *think* (knock on wood and pray real hard) that, after printing out a bunch of copies and making the gird as it is to be worked, I am doing it right this time.  A very frustrating knitting project but it will be worth it in the end.  

Kind of like these last few days of being pregnant.

The next time you find yourself overdue and waiting on baby, take a few minutes to teach one of the children how to update the blog! LOL

Only kidding, of course!

Praying that these are happy, baby-filled days in the Newman house.
