My loves...

I have been up since about 3am this morning because Baby Boy was kicking around in my stomach....and I LOVE it! I love feeling him kick and move around and I thank God every time this happens because it affirms that my baby is moving and growing. Zev and I can't wait to meet our little man. Since I am on the subject of LOVE and since Valentine's Day was only last week, I thought I would share some of my top loves. Just because.
1. God
I love God. He is my first love. Not only has He given us this beautiful, miracle of life, but the more I read the Bible and pray to Him, the more I get to know Him. I pray about everything. Every little thing and every big thing. Sometimes I have something on my mind, a worry or something and even though I don't exactly know what I should be praying about or how to pray it, I just open up my Bible and I read. The Book of Psalms are awesome when you want to tell God something but can't find the right words.

2. Zev
The most important person on the planet to me. He is a really good man to me. I try to be a good wife to him. We aren't perfect and our marriage isn't perfect but I find that being "real" with each other and openly talking about stuff- happy things, sad, frustrating things, hopes and plans for the future, God, our baby- helps unite us. Marriage is work, hard work. I pray every day for our marriage and for God to protect my husband and to surround him with good people.
3. Being pregnant
Now that I guess I am officially considered "heavy with child" (I love that phrase! It's funny to me) I am getting asked whether I am "done" with this pregnancy and ready for the baby to "come out"!? I love being pregnant! This is the happiest time in my life for many reasons, one of which is carrying a sweet baby inside me. I can't wait to meet our little man and pray that his birth is safe and that he is healthy. We have about 6 weeks to go until we meet our baby boy. I also can't wait for my mum and Howard to arrive soon. It will have been 21 months since I have seen my Australian family!! Love transcends distance thankfully (and the internet and calling cards help lots too.)
4. Family and friends
This is a given. Zev and I love our family around the world. Being a military family, the friends we make at each post are like family to us. Our new neighbors are having a baby shower for baby boy and I today. We just moved here in September. I feel very honored by this. About 90% of our neighbors have some sort of military connection. All the neighbors around us are retired military.
5. Warm weather and naps
Being from Australia and having latin blood, I love warm weather. I do. I love to ski and think the snow is pretty, but I love places with more sunshine and pretty days and I love it when the locals here say that this winter has been "unseasonably warm." That is A-Ok with me. It was 79 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday. I loved it. Since being pregnant, I love taking naps during the day. I am usually busy with work in the mornings, but lately I have had to take a 45 min to one hour nap in the afternoon. It really helps perk me up. Speaking of which, I am now once again tired. It's 5am so I'll try to go back to bed for an hour or two.
Hope you have a LOVE-ly day!
Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. Song of Songs 8:7a
