peacefulness. | life of charmings

...trying to enjoy all the peacefulness around me lately.
i got a liiittle crazy earlier last week,
knocked out some serious to-do list items,
panicked maybe a smidge when i realized
that baby could do her thing any minute... or not...
[aaand so far, we're still going with not.]
so, now i'm just trying to stay on a roll with things
but get back to my happy place. take it easy a little.
savor the summertime. time with steven.
let my mind and emotions rest a while! [gosh, they need it.]
and just. be. happy.
i feel like i've had to slow down a lot in this past week,
so i might as well enjoy it, right?
life is good. bellies are good. babies are good.
and God's timing is always perfect.

*still, i am constantly wondering how many times i will need to vacuum before baby time? i can't even put the vacuum away because what if baby time comes but the floor's a mess? and i cannot stop reading people's lists on what they packed in their hospital bag. can't stop. fyi, there are a million. and also, i am totally going to be one of those weird girls who misses their huge and active belly, because i still love it, although my ribs are starting to ache a little bit, so i probably won't miss that.


  1. Bring lots of extra undies, cards, laptop,music, books. I only packed for 2 days as I thought we would be in there for 24 hours max but our baby girl had jaundice and we ended up staying there for 6days 7 nights!

    When the end is near its easy to lose patience and just want to hold your babe but I am glad you are trying to enjoy this time of peace and quiet

  2. you'll be a great mama! enjoy your fluffs before baby turns the house upside down!

  3. Such beautiful pictures! I love you blog!

  4. I always love your photos. It must be sooo exciting to almost be at the finish line :)

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet note. xoxo

    p.s. i added you to my link list!!!

  5. you are absolutely adorable. and i'm sure your hospital bag will put all others to shame. can't wait to see the little one! and i'm sure she won't mind the floor ;) she'll just be happy to have someone like you as a momma.

  6. Praying for you, friend! It's hard for me to "just be" and I'm not even pregnant! I know your little girl is walking into the most amazing home, no matter when she arrives. P.S. I'm totally not okay with you guys holding out on the name... :) Cannot wait!

  7. some commented bring lots of undies. haha. i didn't use any that the hospital didn't provide (ie amazing biker short underwear complete with diaper). why ruin your own. so you have that to look forward to.
    and that sweet little bundle in your belly. i can just tell you are gonna be a wonderful mama.

  8. Such beautiful photos. You must be beyond excited for your tiny bundle to arrive.

  9. I am expecting as well and nearing the arrival of our little boy is so exciting but I feel the same way....I think I am really going to miss the little kicks and my big belly!! It has been amazing being pregnant!! It makes me feel better that someone else feels the same way! I am sure baby's arrival will over shadow my missing being pregnant!! Good luck to you!

  10. I love your photos. so excited for you! :) You will miss your belly, but you'll love having your baby so much more! Congratulations!

  11. I've never had a baby, but I am already anxious (in a good way) about the time RIGHT before--about not knowing when exactly. I get butterflies just thinking about it. What an exciting time, knowing your life is about to change forever, and you get to meet the little person you probably already feel like you know! Hang in there!


charmed, i'm sure!
