Aiming for progress, not perfection.

will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

the most perfect pregnancy moment.

last night landon and i were laying in bed. we knew we needed to sleep because we have a lot to do today, but our 3.5 hour sunday nap was causing us a little trouble. we were talking and laughing and being silly - i love the talking we do right before we fall asleep and right after we wake up. and i started getting hungry! this was like midnight, mind you. but i can only eat small amounts at a time. it's like i'm ravenously hungry, but then i can't eat a whole lot. then, i get hungry again in like two hours. very weird. anyway... i figured i'd just fall asleep and ignore it. but then i got thirsty, too. and landon is very insistent that i drink water while i'm pregnant. he read in his daddy book that it's really important. so.. he gets up without a word to go downstairs. when he comes back, he has a bottle of water and a little, individually-wrapped piece of cheddar cheese - basically my saving grace when i need some protein, which is almost always. i almost cried. it was the sweetest thing. he said, "was that a good choice" all hopeful and approval-needing.

baby, you don't need me to tell you you're doing an incredible job as a daddy already. it's just a fact. and i'm so excited for what that means for our new baby and our whole family. how lucky we are to have you... i love you.
