Snow and ice all day yesterday, through the night, and for a few hours today.  Got a layer of ice beneath, 3-5 inches today, and a layer of ice on top.  It’s nice!

Baby Mustain

Baby Mustain,
You are still in your mommy’s womb growing and developing. So far, you have made it difficult for us to see if you are a boy or a girl. You just will not turn the right way during the ultrasound. Maybe you are trying to surprise us all. Nevertheless, even as you are becoming who you are, I want you to know a few things.
First, we love you. We do not know your name, your sex, your hair or eye color; we do not know how tall you will be. We do not know much of anything about you yet. However, we love you dearly, and we will always love you.
Second, you are God’s answer to our prayers. Your entire family has been praying about you for a long time. Your mom and dad have thought about you, talked about you, and planned for you. At one point, we were not sure you were even going to come along. God, in His wisdom and divine love, has finally given you to us.
Finally, I know your attention span is still pretty short so I will not write you a book here. You do not have to be afraid. The world you are coming into can be a scary place. There are people who are fighting with each other, wars, earthquakes, tornados, forest fires, and hurricanes. These kinds of things are even scary for adults. However, Baby Mustain, you are wrapped in your family’s arms and God’s arms. We will hold you and protect you. We will lead you and guide you. WE WILL BE THERE FOR YOU!
So, keep on growing and don’t kick mommy too hard. We will see you in the summer.
I love you,
