On May 18th, after Nat took the awesome pix and then proceeded to take #1-#3 back to Illinois with her, Levi asked his dad if we could maybe possibly go to the Cheesecake Factory. Just the four of us.
It didn't take much convincing. They have reasonably priced kids meals and D and I always split a meal so we can get outta there without having to do dishes. it's a win win.
Can you believe that it's June today? Do you know what that means?
It's BABY month around here. Today was my home visit with Mary Helen and her assistant, Summer. Ya'd think with the burgeoning belly that that would make this all seem real. And it does. But this visit really just made this seem like it's actually gonna happen.
My little boy is doing very well...it's funny because his heart rate is always so strong. When we talk to him or when I rustle him/pat him during my doppler check, his little heart rate goes up. Such a fun little fella. Can't WAIT to meet him. We've begun the bet placing...it's all in fun, of course, but it's fun to get people's guesses on when baby will arrive and how much baby will weigh. We post it up...and heck, since this is Last Young, we may even issue a prize for the closest guess. So, drop me a comment...I'll put your name on the page.
I'm having some pretty consistent Braxton Hicks contractions today. I have to admit, it does make me a smidge nervous...I know what to expect. It's going to hurt but I pray his delivery goes quickly. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to do a home birth one last time. It's hard to get the head around that...how good God has been to give us nearly 6 incredible kids and 6 awe-inspiring deliveries. Wow. Not taken lightly.
I'm all ready....got my supplies in the crib and all we need is for baby to show up. I appreciate your prayers...
I'll be back, for I have a slew of pix from Race weekend to post, and even Mel's 13th b-day pix. Little bits....litttttttttle bits. Peace....
