Boy or Girl....Girl or Boy?????
This is the part I LOVE about not knowing. The excitement builds and builds. My anxiety over labor and delivery also builds and builds, but that's not exactly exciting. The Lord is helping me not to be as terrified as last time (when I remember to ask Him). But I'm still pretty scared. My doctor says he doesn't think I'll make it to my due date, for whatever that is worth. This time around, I wouldn't mind being a teensy bit early. That way we have the big event over with before the kids start school. That makes the first day a whole lot less stressful for me. And it also gives Ezra and Caroline a chance to be home a bit with the Baby. They have just been dying to hold him, to kiss her, to help Mommy with this new little one. I want them to have that chance before they have to rush out the door each morning and come home exhausted each afternoon while they get used to all the energy that school takes. And that way we could have some lazy, cuddly mornings together without the mad-rush to eat breakfast, get dressed, pack lunches, feed the baby, grab the back packs, tie the shoes, load up the kids, buckle all the car seats and get to school on time enough to not have to walk into the office and sign a tardy note.
So Baby, we're ready when you are!
