Full Term

Today I am 37 weeks pregnant, which is considered to be full term!!! Today is also my 26th birthday. It truly is a gift to be full term on my birthday. After 3 years of obstetric and postpartum nursing I know firsthand that pregnancy and childbirth do not always have a good outcome. I am so thankful to have made it this far and I'm praying that the remainder of the pregnancy will go just as well. It is hard to believe that in a few short weeks Stephen will be stepping out of the delivery room and introducing our child to family and friends. Here are some 26 year old photos of my dad bringing me out to meet the world!

It looks like he's saying "girl" or "huge". Both were true. I was born a 9 lb 10 oz girl.

I love this picture because it is such a good one of Chuck (my grandmother). We have always had a special relationship and her delight in me has had a great impact on my life. She has modeled to me what Jesus's love for his children is like. One day I hope to be a grandmother just like her.

I love this. And I love what you said about Chuck!!

I remember how Laurie and everyone else was warning your dad that "the baby has a heartbeat of a boy," and he just kept saying, "I'm holding out for a girl." He got a good one!

Love you -

what a great post... I'm so thankful to have known her, lots of good memories in that house. Best of all, I've never met someone so excited about heaven.
