Babies will come when they want. Sometimes when we are ready and others when we aren’t. The later is true for us. I wasn’t packed and my husband was away at work still, set to come home the next day. Baby D arrived Wednesday October 15th at 7:54pm. I went to my regular 37 week prenatal visit that morning and had just missed my doctor who had to run out and deliver a baby so I had to wait and see the midwife, who is equally wonderful. She checked my cervix which had been just barely 1cm the week before. She had a slightly surprised look on her face and asked if I’d been tracking my contractions. Which I hadn’t because I mean I’d been having them for weeks and I was pretty settled into the idea of going until my induction date of the 29th. She thought it would be a really great idea if I went directly to labor and delivery to be monitored. I was 4cm on the outer edge and 2cm on the inside. With contractions pretty regular. I got over there around 1 and ended up admitted. They broke my water at 6:50, I can’t even tell you how long I pushed for. Honestly it was only 2-3 pushes and he was here all 6lbs 15oz and 20.5 inches. I can’t believe he’s here already and that I have a little boy finally after three girls. He’s perfect!



I will confess that I am completely enamored with this little one! She’s already a year old and it breaks my heart. It goes by too fast so today when she was done nursing and had fallen asleep I chose to just snuggle her.


There are a few songs that I love, like really love, because they move me to be more motivated and or just really lift my spirits.

I bought My Paper Heart recently by Francesca Battistelli (okay not very recently as it was back in May I think). I only purchased it because the girls loved her song ‘Beautiful, Beautiful’  (another favorite of mine). I was listening through it the other day and found a song that gave me goosebumps within the first several moments and tears by the end.

This song encourages me more than I can explain. I often lose sight of where I’m supposed to keep my eyes. Everything has been such a struggle for me lately, and I know why it has been in some ways. I’m working to bring myself back to where I’m supposed to be.

Rainbow in Fairbanks Alaska

Rainbow in Fairbanks Alaska

Our entire drive yesterday was rainy. It was bright and warm when we arrived in Fairbanks. Of course when we were in dinner it decided to rain. We came out and there was two beautiful rainbows. Of course I was only able to catch the one but still lovely. Of course this was taken with my phone.
