Waiting for Baby
Theresa Morgan and I are on pins and needles waiting for the baby to arrive. We're more than a week away from the due date, but whenever Theresa reports a new ache or ailment, I wonder if it is a "sign" that she will go into labor. I think a lot about how much life will change after the baby, yet still need to stay somewhat the same. When Kayla Morgan was born, we set our schedules around her feedings and naps. With Josh, we continued the schedule that we started with Kayla without too much interruption to our lives. But, it was easier to stay in step with our kids when they were a baby and a toddler. Now that Kayla is 12 and Josh is 10, they require a schedule that is more flexible and busier. We've also branched out a great deal more since they were babies and made friends, gotten involved with community projects, and found a home church. I'm sure that we will slow down as we adjust to the new baby, but I think he will benefit the most if we stay as close to our regular routine as possible. Kayla and Josh certainly would, too. The first time we attend church after he is born will be a test of how well we can stick to our "normal" routine. Theresa and I weren't regular church goers when we first got married, so we didn't look for a home church in Lansing, and once we had Kayla it seemed to daunting to try. With Shepherd being smaller, it seemed right to start looking into the churches. But, after Josh was born it was a question of whether I wanted to get a toddler and a baby ready for church on my own each Sunday morning. My thinking shifted when we started going, and now it is a much bigger priority. With Josh and Kayla being older now, I hope that I am up to the challenge of getting all four of us ready for church. If I am, and can keep it up on a regular basis, then other events should be a breeze.
