I have not left you. Yes, I have abandoned this dear blog for some months now. I have been reveling in my pregnancy! I have been absorbed by the extra doings that comes with making room for a little one in your life and most of all, I have been enjoying this precious, sweet time.
This pregnancy has gone by so quickly and today as I browsed my birthing books and watched some short birthing videos I found myself literally salivating at the idea that in a couple of months I will have a little babe in my arms. I can barely stand the thought of waiting- I am so excited for this babe! I am not always great at waiting. I am also so, so, excited for the birth. That might sound weird. I have gathered that most people perceive childbirth as a painful - maybe even slightly traumatic experience. I have a much different perception- I see it as an opportunity for deep growth, a time when my husband and I can bond, and it will be the first "big thing" all three of us will accomplish as a family. We also have intentionally opted out of having any ultrasounds during this pregnancy (unless absolutely necessary) and so we have no clue what sex this little one is. That makes the birth even more exciting!
For the time being, I will be sowing seeds in the warmth of the prop house if you need me! Working with a belly full of life feels so surreal. I never really feel quite alone anymore in my day to day farm activities and tasks. And soon there will be a little one strapped to my bosom or back as I sow seeds. I cannot wait!!
