The power of cream cheese!

I woke up and almost immediately felt grumpy.

Another day of not being able to do anything on my own and being strapped to a bed or couch..

Despite my poor mood my husband was super sweet and full of hugs and kisses for me.  The kisses helped, but I still didn't look forward to people taking care of me.  Paul dropped me off at his parent's before going to work and I just went to "my spot" and sat down.

I was given a couple pieces of toast with cream cheese and..


I don't know what it is about cream cheese, but it lifted my spirits and I feel better!

Sure I'm still stuck on the couch and can't do anything for myself.. but I'm ok right now. :)

I have received a lot of comforting text messages and comments on facebook.  I am constantly reminded that God is in control and how powerful prayer is.  Everything will work out.  I need to stop worrying so much and just get through this.

In my "spare time" I am putting together a baby registry online.  It makes the time go by and makes me more excited about how close we are to having our little girl with us.

I look forward to seeing my family as well as Grandma Bunny on the 20th!  I'm ready for them to get here, get off this couch, and have this baby!


  1. Praying for ya Grace. Bed rest is no fun but very soon you will be up running around taking care of your bundle of joy and saying, Oh for a little bed rest! :) Sara was my bed rest baby... one month. Boring...zzzzz

  2. At least you have people to take care of you! :) That's a plus!

  3. While you are waiting for Zoe to arrive...write her a letter everyday letting her know how you felt during this time and how much she already means to you. When she grows up, those letters will mean the world to her, especially if she has to face anything like this.

  4. Let it be known that I have found your blog. And all its greatness. And I am now an avid follower! Love you, love zoe, love your writing style!
