Rapunzel dresses and new babies

I know I got a lot of people reading this going ‘what?!’ are you pregnant?! Not yet, but…

that is what this post is all about. 

I need to first explain Emma’s obsession with the Tangled dress. More specifically, the Disney store Rapunzel dress. And she’s wanted it for about 2 months now. She describes the poofy sleeves as well as the long sleeves and the matching shoes. Her voice gets all dreamy sounding and she discribes how she will wear it to her purple Tangled birthday party. (which is in April)

Even though she’s killing this subject DAILY I am constantly reminded by God that Emma’s Rapunzel dress is our 2nd baby. There are obvious comparisons. 

I get all dreamy ( 🙂 ) sounding, I want it NOW, I imagine my life with another one and how wonderful it would be. God then asked me why I’m  not giving Emma her dress now. And the obvious answer is that it’s not Christmas. Travis and I have planned that she would get it for Christmas and Emma is expecting to get it soon. (the sooner the better) 

Like wise, I know that we will eventually be given another baby. And although I have my moments of sadness and disappointment, it’s really helped me to know that He has a certain plan about how He wants to give us our second-and that comforts me.

I see all the lessons Emma is learning while she is forced to wait for ‘the dress’ and I am so proud and amazed. I giggle and smile when she whines she ‘WANTS IT NOW!’

because I totally know how she feels.

**I for one would be VERY happy if we got a baby for Christmas. I could just imagine God laughing and smiling in anticipation as I give Emma her dress and He gives us our babe**

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
  1. Wow I love this example and comparison. It is so true that even as adults we want things right away. But just like Christmas time sometimes we have to wait. I LOVE IT!!! So encouraging. And I will be praying for a baby for a christmas present. That would be so wonderful for sure!!

  2. It amazes me as I try to grasp the truth that God’s timing is perfect and His plan without flaw. I just finished rereading Job and can thankfully, only imagine the depth of challenge he faced before God provided his happy ending. I am cheering you and Emma along as you “wait on the Lord.” (: <3

  3. He makes all things beautiful in its time. (Ecc 3:11) Your faith and trust in GOD is your strength right now, just as Emma trusts in you . She knows she’s getting that dress, just not when. And the joy on Christmas morning will be worth the wait. I love you, and may God give you both the desires of your hearts! —- Mutti
