a boy and a girl

I don't wanna write a love song for the world
I just wanna write a song about a boy and a girl. . .
One more baby boy and one more baby girl will soon be born. That will be the end of my summer of love. The families are doing their best to stay busy, to stay patient. These little ones know when their birthdays are and so we wait. I wonder what it's like for them, for those that they are leaving for this great big earth adventure. I'm sure it's a time of tender preparation, making sure they have all of the gifts they are supposed to be bringing. Maybe it's a little scary as well as really exciting. I hope they know that two earthly families can hardly wait to meet them, love them and help them discover the gifts they have to share.
My birth bags are packed, the car is loaded. My hands and my heart are ready to welcome
a dreamy little boy and a lovely little girl. I can hardly wait to experience the joy their spirits will bring.
get ready. . .get set. . .

I am the mother waiting for the little boy. Blake, his big brother (almost 2), daddy and I are so looking forward to meeting him. Blake wakes up every day asking for "baby". We know that our new little boy will come at the right time. And we are SO grateful to have such a loving midwife working with us. You are the best Cathy. Thank you for sharing your dear thoughts in this blog.

Such patience while you are waiting for these babes is admirable. Then again you are an admirable woman! I love you!
