Our babies

I am thinking today of my children.I am thinking of their soft baby skin, wide blue eyes, their chubby little arms hugging me, their sweet breath on my cheek when they want to be held, their laughs of pure joy, sweet dispositions and stubborn wills. Their love of singing songs over and over until they fall asleep (Lily, too, she hums really loud). Claire's sweet wake up hugs and Lily's kisses.

I also am thinking of my babies in heaven and how much I miss them. I know that I will see them some day and that makes me happy beyond description. I will see Jesus and my babies and they are safe in their heavenly home. So much safer than I could ever make them here. What a blessing to have them waiting for me. What an incentive to tell others of the saving power of Jesus.

I always think more often of our babies in heaven when I am pregnant. I guess being pregnant just makes me feel closer to them. As I lay in bed last night and let the baby kick and roll, I thought of how blessed I am to experience this again. It will be hard, yes, without a doubt. But, life is full of hard things and some are definitely worth the work. This is one of those times. This baby is worth the work. He/She is definitely one of our greatest blesssings and will be one of the greatest joys of our life. I can't wait to meet you little one and teach you so many things as I watch you grow. I can't wait to see you with your sisters and tell you about your siblings in heaven. I can't wait to give you hugs and kisses and "I love you's" every day of your life. I can't wait to see your little feet and hands and your beautiful eyes and to kiss your sweet little cheeks. Only a few short weeks and we will meet you! We will see you on the ultrasound next week and Daddy can't wait, either! As many times as we do this, we never get tired of seeing our precious little ones on the ultrasound screen! What a beautiful sight!

Little one, you are so loved and cherished. We know that God has a purpose for your life already and I can't believe that we are so blessed as to be the ones to prepare you for your life. What a blessing you and your sisters are to us, we love you, Baby Fogg!!!

Thank you, Lord, for the precious blessings you have bestowed upon us. We are forever grateful and humbled by your amazing grace. There really are no words for the love you have shown us.

Very sweet words! I cant wait for he/she to get here. To hold it and cuddle it and love it and Thank God for it. I know you know the feeling of watching your sister and waiting and wanting to make sure that everything is okay. I am sure that you know what it feels like to wait impatiently until it gets here and then wait to here that all is well...I want so bad to make everything okay...but alas I cant. All I can do is give it to God and ask him to please not let you hurt anymore...please let this one live too...(And of course come bug you in the labor room! :) Cause you know I'll be there and I may not leave this time..lol)
I know that when it is time for this one to be born, we will all wait impatiently until someone lets us know that you and baby are fine. I know that this time unlike the first, I will be praying non stop and giving it all to Him. Just please have someone call me if you go into labor early...I'm only 2 hours away now not 5 like with lily...Love Ya Sis
