I SHOULD be packing!

Hey Guys,

Thanks for all your encouraging words and prayers!! We are certainly appreciative of them! Mom made it safe this evening, MommaSissy is coming in the morning and DaddyBoy is coming in a few days!

I’m feeling a little anxious {imagine that} about the big day! We (especially ME) would love your prayers tomorrow {the c-section should start at 12 noon CST}…

a. for peace for me and that I will trust in my Heavenly Father… Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.”
b. for baby boy to be delivered healthy, without complication and that his lungs will be fully developed and have no signs of respiratory distress {the chances are slim but still possible at 37 weeks}
c. for no complications during or after the c-section and for GREAT pain management {something that was lacking with my c-section with Raiger}

Thank you all for all your well wishes and prayers! We can’t wait to introduce him to you!

Loving you all!! Good night!

ps- I did finish the Nappy Bag but am too tired to share pictures. His nursery is mostly done… according to UPS tracking the curtains should be arriving tomorrow… good thing MommaSissy will be here to install them for me, right Sister!? The drill, hammer, and screws are all in the cabinet in the den… 🙂
