Just Catching You Up

The boys amaze me with what might seem the simplest things. Perhaps, it's because they're my children or perhaps it's because I'm easily amazed. Who knows?! But, this morning, Judah was looking through some of his puzzle alphabet letters and came across the "Y". He said, "Y for Yuck" twice before I realized what he was saying. What a smart, little buddy!

Here's the ticker for the baby's arrival:

Lilypie Expecting a baby Ticker

As you can see, I'm "overdue", whatever that means. Of course, it means a whole lot when you are the one who's overdue. It's so easy to say the due date is relative and not exact until you become the one who is past that nebulous due date!! I am having to confess everyday that goes by my lack of patience and my struggle to lean on my own understanding. And, I am having to reaffirm everyday that goes by my dependence and ultimate trust in God's perfect timing and wisdom for both how and when this baby will emerge into our world.

I have an OB appointment tomorrow evening and will post if there's anything post-worthy. Otherwise, just assume that we're still at home waiting, trying to get and maintain an orderly, clean home and continuing to make plans for bringing this baby home with us.

Still to be done:
  • strap infant seat into van.
  • pack a bag for baby and me for our time in the hospital.
  • buy italian ices for the potential of laboring at home.

In our human wisdom, Lawrence and I would say this week, preferably the earlier part of this week, would be best for the baby to come in regards to his work schedule. This week, Lawrence is in the office either tying up loose ends of jobs he's almost finished or preparing for jobs he has yet to begin audits for. From next week until the end of March, he is scheduled to be out in the field on actual engagments which means much less flexibility for him in terms of taking off time for the baby. So, we would pray that the baby would come this week: like today or tomorrow would be GREAT!

I'm praying a Tuesday's child for ya. They are "full of grace," at least according to the poet. It suprises me that you haven't packed a bag. That sounds more like me than you! Hey, smart little boys you have there. Could Judah tell you another word that starts with Y?

That was me, I couldn't get my password to go thru. I'm gonna try again and if not, I'll use Other.

You're patiently waiting for baby, I'm patiently waiting for my phone call!!!! Day or night, make my phone ring...

My love and prayers to you tonight.

I'm working on a small gift for you but will need confirmation on the boy/girl issue to complete it. You're gonna love it! Since I can't bring you a warm meal (I so enjoy that your care group & friends take incredible care of you & your family) I'm sending you something that will warm your heart. Got any guesses?

Your boys are very smart - just like mommy and daddy :) Ours are really smart too. They devise new ways to get into mischief just about every day!
