Just a quick update from my maternity leave: No baby yet. I still have 8 more days until my due date... I'm excited and nervous and happy and scared and every other emotion under the planet! I cry really easily this week - so it's a good thing I'm not on-air. I'd be a mess! It's good to have a little time to prepare mentally and emotionally, so I'm glad I have a few days to myself. I really miss being at work, though - I called Tom twice on Monday just to say "Hey!" and I think I call Joel (my husband) about 50 times a day at his work. I get so lonely - I'm not used to being at home during the day. I'm thankful for my cat!

Speaking of calling people, it's gotten to the point now where I can't even call my own Mom or Dad just to chat! Everytime they answer the phone and hear my voice, they say: "Hi Sarah!!! Is it time???" and I'm like "No, Dad. I was just calling to say hello!" and then he sounds disappointed! I even have friends and family that don't want me to call them anymore because they get too excited! So I'm banned from my phone. It's sad!

This week (baby or not) will prove to be a busy one - my birthday is on Friday and then there's Christmas Eve with family and Christmas day with more family! We'll see if Olivia decides to make her debut sometime in there - my husband is convinced she's going to be my birthday present (the 22nd). I'll keep you posted!

I hope your week leading up to Christmas is a good one!

Hi Sarah, I think you have to be the cutest pregnant lady ever! It was good to hear you talk to Tom on the air yesterday, I miss you already. Silly as it is, you and Tom feel like old friends to me because I listen to you every day. I'm praying for you, I know the Lord will bring your precious Olivia to you safe and sound and hopefully not on your birthday! Hang in there.

Much love and many blessings,
Alena Lorraine

Oh Sarah, you sound so sweet and excited and it makes me excited for you. You are in for the journey of your life once Little Olivia gets here. So take this time even though we miss you terribly on the station. These are the last few days you have all to yourself, it will NEVER be that way again. Savor it. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Lots of Love,

Happy Birthday Sarah! I hope this day has been full of love, laughter, and all of the people you love. Enjoy each and every special moment leading up to Olivia's arrival. These are precious days that you will remember forever as you ponder holding this miracle in your arms! Happy Birthday and may you feel the love of our Savior even more!

Hugs to you,

Hey Sarah Dear,
I love the pictures of you and Olivia. You truly look the picture of health! I'm so comforted to know that you, Joel and Olivia have made such a great adjustment. I pray for all of you! Keep up the good work with Olivia, she's blessed to have you! 8-)
