Sweet Moments

Little One kicks me a lot now, which is very reassuring to me. I am told there will be a time when I come to wish the kicks were less frequent and less strong, but right now I am relishing every moment. The kicks are strong enough to feel from the outside now, so I laid in bed last night with my hand on my stomach feeling the kicks from the outside and the inside at the same time. It is miraculous! It is amazing how close you feel to God when you are carrying one of his miracles.

Jory laid his head on my stomach to take a nap this weekend and Little One immediately settled into place and stopped kicking. Awww...their first nap together.

We went to see Willie Nelson Saturday night. He put on an AWESOME show! I didn't find out until later that he is 76 years old!?!!?! You would not have known - really. We saw Merle recently and we love Merle, but he is old and his show reflected it; not so with Willie. Anyway, Little One kicked for Willie but, by far, kicked the most during 'If You've got the Money...' My grandfather used to sing this song to me (he changed the words) and it is a good memory for me. It is the only song I wanted to hear Willie sing. It was fabulous and it was fabulous that Little One recognized the greatness of the moment.

I have seen the materials for Little One's bedding. They are wonderful and Ann is wonderful - I am very blessed. The colors are burgundy and tan. We have a baby quilt that Jory bought for me that Ann worked off of to get blending materials. I love what she came up with! I will post a picture of the quilt this week so that you can see the focal point. There are two bedding materials that Ann will use primarily. They are both burgundy and tan. I will get pictures of those, as well. The accents will be blue (denim) and white (eyelet). She showed me some patterns and it really is going to be wonderful. Jory is now all about painting the room. Either yellow or tan, he's deliberating. I will let you know...

The kicks are so much fun, aren't they!? And I'm glad you're having fun with the baby bedding and working with all of the colors. Can't wait to hear more about it. :)

Wow! For Nelson to be 76, he sure is still putting on a show! I'm glad you got to see him. : )

I'm always amazed at God when a friend or relative is pregnant. It's so awesome to think a tiny person is being formed inside their mother...so crazy!
Thanks for sharing your stories...can't wait to see the bedding!

Love the Blog! The Little One is God's miracle and blessed to have Jory and Sara for parents. Excited about the nursery coming together.

Praise and Thanksgiving in all things.

Glad you could share that "song" with your little one. Your Grandpa loved holding you on his lap and singing to you.
The bedding sounds wonderful.
Love---mom

OH! I never, ever, ever got tired of feeling those kicks and movements! Awww, it is so precious and so short-lived. It's one of my favorite parts of pregnancy! I can't wait to start feeling this one movin' around in there!

I would love to see Willie! How fun! A loooong time ago, my aunt went to see him, and she just happened to be standing outside one of the back doors. He came out, and without saying anything, just kissed her on the mouth, and kept walking! Aaaauuuggghhh!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I'm bookmarking you! Take care!
