i am creating life.

"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.
Everyone can create."
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ

When President Uchtdorf gave this talk in the General Relief Society Meeting, I simply loved it. In fact, I still love it.

My {also pregnant} friend Emily, posted this video that was made by the church on her blog recently. You should watch it.

When I watched it, I couldn't help but think about the fact that I am, right now, creating.... I am creating life. What could be more miraculous then that? It's hard, but is so worth it!! {Very hard!!}

There are 7 weeks until my due date, November 6th. I am 33 weeks and 1 day into this pregnancy as of today. I can't help but get scared that she will come early, too early and that I won't be ready. Chase thinks she'll be born on November 4th or 5th. I hope she's late... more like November 10th or 12th.
I don't want her to come on October 30, 31 or November 3rd, 8th or 11th. {perhaps i just jinxed myself}

Today after church, I tried to get a good shot of my pregnant self with Photobooth on my MacBook... Perhaps I didn't get a great shot, but here I am... today:

Xoxo, Brittany.
