Casper could not have come at a better time.
This has been the motto around our house for the past 2 weeks. We just cannot believe how it has all turned out so awesome... Grant being able to get almost 2 weeks off of work, plus blizzards and snow days to keep us all cozied in at home together, etc. We've been watching movies and making easy meals and getting our taxes done and writing papers (Grant) and sneaking naps/showers. And I have been putting in major hours of nursing, of course. It's been way better than I could even imagine. We thought for sure our baby wouldn't arrive until the end of January, but the Lord has a different plan. And His timing is perfect. I know this is true, but I've never seen it to be more true in my own life than right now. Thank you, Lord! You always know.
Also on my mind: January is normally such a strange, stalled month, but now the new year is all about bringing in this new life. I love it. There wasn't any time to be sad about Christmas being over, and now January is consumed with purpose. I wish it could be like this every year! Any time is a great time to have a baby, but seriously, all my babies could come in January and I wouldn't complain a bit :)
