Sooo we’re having a baby?

Sooo we’re having a baby?

You likely already know this by now, buuut we’ve got Baby Steele #4 growing away! We knew we’d like one more for our family, but we couldn’t decide when. So we didn’t. We just told the Lord of our desire and asked Him to lead the way. And lead He did! I’m so thankful to […]

{{The Days of}} Liddi’s Birth Story

{{The Days of}} Liddi’s Birth Story

39 weeks Friday, February 13, I leave my MOMs group, assuring them I’ll be at the next meeting…WITH a baby. • That evening, I have many contractions. None too hard, but enough that I start thinking Maybe it’s tonight! I go for an 8-block walk after the kids went to bed. And have no further contractions. Drat. Proof that my coat […]

my first #blessingway

my first #blessingway

Have you heard of a blessingway? It’s a Native American tradition, I believe, of showering a near-birth woman with love and blessings. And apparently treats. Or at least, our American version included that. Last Saturday, some of my dearest friends surprised me with my first blessingway. And a surprise it was! I had even gone […]

This baby’s coming!

This baby’s coming!

This is a 36-week belly. And today we’re already 37 weeks! Baby has definitely dropped. (I’m nearing the point where I’m certain if he/she drops any lower, they’ll just fall out, but Midwife Shannon assures me there’s a much longer process to the whole thing.) I started taking a liquid calcium/magnesium supplement, aaaaaand I’m sleeping at […]

Nesting, drawing, sleeping, crawling

Nesting, drawing, sleeping, crawling

So there’s this condition called nesting, and I’ve got it. The baby’s dresser is fully organized (as is the entire room!); pictures have been placed around the main floor (okay, so that’s something that should have been done a long time ago, but apparently I just needed the motivation of laboring at home to git ‘er done); […]

Baby Three

Baby Three

1. My hip pain continued to increase until I was at a breaking point two weekends ago. The most severe pain is while sleeping, which is also when your mind is most susceptible to discouraging thoughts. Really hard to fight back when you’re barely awake. Up every two hours or less, finally get up to take […]

Pregnancy #3

Pregnancy #3

                        The difference between these two bellies is about ten weeks. And a seasonal wardrobe change. Brr is it chilly these days! The similarity is gifted clothing (thank you, neighbors!). And bent fingers since my nail biting problem has only gotten worse with every […]

A Poem for a Friday.

A Poem for a Friday.

Loving cousins Hating distance Belly popping With persistence Fresh hair cut For a birthday party Braiding hair And feeling artsy Girls abound In Corban’s friends So time to veg And feel a man Sibling hugs That are staged by them Loving finding Little gems

The Blueberry Smile

The Blueberry Smile

It seems like just when I’m down enough to say, these days are too hard to continue, the Lord sneaks in a little reminder that joy is a choice no matter the circumstances. Tell me this wouldn’t make you smile. (I promise you I found it like this right on its way into my mouth!)

Fun with Announcements

Fun with Announcements

When we found out we were expecting, my mind went immediately to how we were going to share the news with our families. Of course, telling them in person is the preferred way, but living long distances from families could force us to wait several months before sharing. And if you know me even one […]
