It’s hard to believe that our second bundle of joy will be here in just about 6 weeks.
Lots of things will be trial and error when Jonathan gets here, like tandem nursing and having 2 children in our bedroom at night. However, there are a couple things we know for sure.
First, we know that children are a gift from God. Not only does He tell us (Psalm 127:3), but it’s reinforced every time Emahry looks at us and says “Da-da” or “Ma-ma” & blows us kisses or when she hugs us tight around the neck and pats our back with her tiny hands.
Second, we know that we can’t possible be the parents we need to be without the grace, strength, & wisdom of our Father. I love the fact that we are promised again and again throughout scripture that God is our strength (Exodus 15:2, Nehemiah 8:10, Psalm 118:14, Isaiah 40:31, & Philippians 4:13 just to name a few).
I’m glad I don’t have to lean on my own strength as a mom, especially as a soon-to-be mom of two under 18 months old.
