Preparing for Matilda Kate

Today, I am 33 weeks 4 days pregnant with our newest bundle of joy, Matilda Kate. With less than 7 weeks until my due date, I have entered the nesting phase of my pregnancy and I cannot turn it off!! I am on a mission to get things ready for our newest arrival.
Birth Plan
One of our top priorities has been to make a final decision about our birth plan.
Please pray for us as we prepare for labor and delivery and that the Lord would continue to provide everything that we need to be ready for Matilda's arrival.
Another priority of mine is nursing. Nursing with my other girls was extremely challenging and I didn't stick with it for very long. However, I am more determined than ever to nurse Matilda.
Please pray for me and that I would not give up on nursing, even though it will be hard. Pray that Matilda will be a good eater and gain weight at a healthy rate.
Freezer Meals
I want to stock my freezer full of frozen meals that I can use in the days and weeks after I give birth to Matilda. This past week I made 8 different freezer meals: meat sauce, peachy chicken picante, taco junk, chicken pot pie, and cabbage soup. My plan is to continue to make more meals over the next few weeks leading up to my due date.
Please pray that the Lord will continue to provide for us financially as we try to stock up on essentials before Matilda arrives.
Out of pure laziness, I have not been walking on a regular basis. However, I am excited to say that I have started walking again! I didn't realize just how much I miss walking. I know that one of the best ways to prepare my body for a healthy labor and delivery is to get up off of my couch and go for a walk.
The girls love walking too!
Big Sisters
There are a lot of changes that will take place in the next few months as our little family grows!! Olivia and Sophie are so excited about Baby Matilda. However, I know that it will still be hard on them as Matilda is born and things change. It's going to take all of us time to learn what it looks like to be a family of FIVE.
Please pray for Olivia and Sophie during this time of transition. Pray that they will continue to pour out their love onto their baby sister, as they have over the past 7 months.
"Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him." - Psalm 127:3 [NLT}
