Last night Mr. Murphy and I were doing our bed time ritual of night time prayers. Back when we were dating someone special gave us the wonderful advice that when we have couples prayer at night that BOTH of us should pray out loud together.
We took that to heart and have made it our tradition.
I love the fact that I get to hear John Murphy say a sweet little prayer every night.
Last night was no different. We sleepily climbed in to our cozy bed and I clicked off the light and said my prayer first.
Then it was husband's turn...
"Heavenly Father please help us to continue to have a happy marriage and to prepare for EJ. Please keep her healthy and strong. Help us to continue to make good habits now of spending time together so that when all of the children come along we can keep our marriage and friendship strong and continue in the strong bond that we have."
I wanted to cry. I am so happy to have a husband who is my BEST FRIEND. I know our lives are about to change so much, and for the better. But I sure am enjoying these last few months of it being just the two of us. We talk about EJ every day and dream about what she will look like and all of the things we want to teach her.
I am beginning on her nursery and have a thousand ideas running around in my head. I can't wait to get started on her room. Here is my 18 1/2 week belly and a beautiful rug that I found last night.
Oh, little girl, you are already so loved.
