I can't believe I am 23 weeks!!! I have stopped counting the weeks and starting counting down to the due date (September 30). So... 17 weeks to go! She is very active and so am I. I have been stepping up on my exercises which really help me feel better. It relieves some of the back pain I experience later in the day. The best moment this week was finally going to some local Children's stores (with money) to buy clothes. We bought a good amount from Carters and The Children's Place. It the best time to stock up on her winter clothes because they are so cheap. When I say cheap, I do mean cheap. I bought winter socks, tights, shirts, and onsies for $1.99 a piece at The Children's Place! I need to take a minute to brag on the daddy-to-be, Caleb. I couldn't be more proud. He is such a wonderful, Godly, and loving husband. He enjoys being apart of this journey and even loves to pick out clothes for her own his own. He is going to be a outstanding father. I am so excited that another young lady will get to experience Caleb's love through Christ. Caleb is definitely going to be her first love. He can't wait to take her to ballets at the Atlanta's Fox Theatre and other father daughter dates. Gosh, as I am writing this I stand amazed at the fact that I can call Caleb my husband and father of my children. What did I do to deserve this? I have a hard enough time grasping how much I do not deserve Christ love. I can't even grasp his holiness...only the sanctification process has really helped me understand that. Some things I really look forward to are baby showers and seeing family in North Carolina. It is going to be so delightful! Anyhow, I am going to post pictures of some favorite clothes Caleb and I bought this week. Be on the look out for those pictures!
