It's April. After so many twists and turns of muscles and stomach and nerves and facial expressions, we're only one month away.

I'm finally letting myself peek just a bit through the blinds of my misery and allowing the luxury of just a little excitement.

Instead of just looking down with my shoulder to the wheel for the sake of sheer sanity, I sometimes look up. Not too much. But enough to want to shriek and let my fingertips flutter together as I bounce up and down on my toes (figuratively. . . oh, so figuratively).

All the joyful suspense and longing that has been building up during these months of physical and emotional confinement can't raise its hopeful head too often or I would never sleep. Never. My heart races and my fingers reach out and I would never be able to calm down. So, for now, I'm still just peeking with my eyes squinted at all of the gorgeous future moments.

This is the song that I indulge in during these slivers of hopeful anticipation.

Just go ahead and try not to cry. I cry streams every single time I hear it.

You are a trooper. I hope the last month goes fast for you. I know even a month can seem like an eternity. Hang in there. I can't wait to see more of you. I would love to come over if I get bored in my empty house when everyone is in school. Really, I miss babies already. Count me in for help. Nicole always tells me funny things about Eve. She is soooo fun!

What a great song to keep spirits up! I am praying for you, and I hope things go well your last few weeks. You are right about those awesome Hafen genes, and very soon, you will be holding a new bundle of them. Thanks for sharing the inspirational video. It is good to see you are blogging. I look forward to some new baby photos in the future.
