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.
