I came across a poem today that spoke volumes! Their are days in our journey with Landon that I get overwhelmed but then I come across someone or something that reminds me to step back and just breathe. 

"I know you can't hear me ... but I do talk to you.
And I hear everything you say to me, too.
I hear when you laugh when I do something funny.
I hear you yell, "Hooray" when I try so hard.
I hear you tell others how you'd never
trade me for the world
even with all the trials I came with.
I hear you thank God for what a blessing
you have been given.
I hear you encourage me when I can almost do it.
I hear you cry, too, when it gets a little harder
and when you ask God, "Why?!" your baby
and I know you know I understand somehow.
And you know I listen when you talk to me too

But, I want you to know, Mom ... I do talk to you."

I love you Landon!

It's not often that us as moms sit down and do a post about ourselves; however, after literally going almost the ENTIRE pregnancy without posting about number three, I decided today was the day! So I guess it's not entirely about ME :)

We have four weeks and some change to go until we meet our little man! We are beyond excited to hold him in our arms and introduce him to our family. He's already developed quite a personality with his movements and reactions. As I rested today (yes I managed to squeeze that in), I played some Enya on my iPhone and let it rest on my belly. He loved it! Although it prevented me from sleeping, it was neat to just be in the moment and enjoy it. This was also an attempt to persuade him to get out of his breech position and avoid the dreadful version next week! 

It's been amazing watching the kids react to this pregnancy. On a daily basis, Landon lifts up my shirt and showers my belly in kisses and then there's Miss K who can't wait to feed the baby, change the baby, wash the baby, you name it and she wants to do it with the baby. 

Here is the long awaited belly shot!
