I actually have several unrelated pregnancy thoughts running through my head so I guess I'll share them.
I'm kind of convinced that perhaps the reason Kai is avoiding delivery involves my children. I think it has to be awfully offputting to have 3 children rest their little heads on my stomach while whispering, "Baby, come out soon!" in a slightly spooky, horror film type voice.
I am also convinced that he needs to arrive soon or I may turn into a shopping addict. I've bought several things in the last month or so, many off online Facebook sites for area people selling items. Included in my purchases were a new area rug for the living room (from Zulily) which was kind of a major purchase but one we had been thinking about as our old rug was too small. Our furniture did not sit on the edges of the rug and since we have wood floors and felt pads on the furniture, the furniture was often sliding all over the place.
Finally, I had a wonderful moment in church today thanks to an unlikely source. We have an older lady at church who often talks to us about our family, being pregnant, adopting, etc.. She means well sometimes the things she says are ones you wish she would filter. Today, she started her usual conversation about my pregnancy and ended up gushing about how special we were as people to just take in the kids like we have. Our family friend, John, was sitting behind us and before I could even speak, he interjected, "Well, I think they have pretty special kids." If you know John, he's not exactly a wordsmith but today his words were perfect. I was just thankful to hear him affirm to my kids who were sitting beside me, that adoption is not about us being special parents but about all kids being special kids.
So that's the random week 39 news. Still pregnant, my kids are anxious, I'm on a buying streak, and my friend, John, made my day...
