This morning I found myself, once again, wide awake way before the sun came up. Pretty much since the very beginning of this pregnancy I have woken up at 4:30 every morning. I am actually sleeping better than I was so this morning 4:30 was the only time I woke up, but still...what's the deal?!? I am starting to wonder if there is something about Caleb (the baby on the way) and 4:30 am. This morning as I laid in bed I started pondering all the things that it could mean. I thought maybe my water would break at 4:30 in the morning. Or maybe that would be the time he is actually "birthed" into this world. Or maybe it will be our little morning feeding time. I would be okay with any of these. Especially if 4:30 is the only time he wakes up...that is as long as he is 6 weeks or under. Hailey started sleeping through the night at 6 weeks and I am trying not to get my hopes up with this one but it's hard to think of a baby not sleeping when Hailey has always been such a good sleeper. I was going to get up and write this blog at 4:30 but instead I decided I would get up and use the bathroom and check on Hailey. I had only taken 2 steps into her room when she popped up, grabbed both of her "bayntees" (blankets) and staggered to the front of her crib with her arms up in the air. I couldn't resist so I picked her up and let her lay with us for a while. For the next hour i laid there while Randy slept and Hailey tossed and turned between us (which is what she does when she sleeps in our bed...which is why she never sleeps in our bed). Finally, I picked her up and put her back in her bed and laid back down and decided I would pray. I was asleep in no time. Don't you hate that. Anyway, that is my rant about 4:30 am. I guess I will be seeing it for at least the next 4 months.
On a completely different note...one of my new years resolutions is to memorize a verse of Scripture a week. I figured since I have most of Hailey's books memorized I would fill my mind with something a little more "filling." My verse for this week is Deuteronomy 15:10 "Give liberally and be ungrudging when you do so, for on that account the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake." I figured if I kept track of them on here I could keep myself accountable.
And my fingers hurt so I am finished!
