The Before Picture

Wanna see my belly? I'm going to assume you said yes. Here's my attempt at a self-portrait:).My due date is in six, count 'em SIX, days so we really are down to "any day" (both Hannah and Kaleb were born by now and Sarah was born 'tomorrow', respectively). I'm looking forward to meeting this little one so very much. I can't wait to see those little feet and those little clenched fists. I can't wait to stroke that soft, downy hair. I can't wait to feel that curled up bundle in my arms! In fact, I'm so excited to meet this little one that I've finally decided I'm even willing to endure labor and birth to accomplish such a meeting!!! I've been a bit on the fence about that (as if I had a way out! Ha!!!!). So hopefully this 'before picture' will soon be followed by an 'after picture', revealing the sweet occupant of that bulge!!!! We appreciate your prayers for a safe and uncomplicated birth as well as a healthy baby! Thank you!!!

You totally had me going!!! I was expecting an after picture as well :-) especially with all of Craig's facebook talk of a certain plug :-)
So thankful the Lord is giving you peace and excitement as well, as the time to meet your sweet little one is about here!!! We'll keep praying! Love you!

I had to do a double take at the picture, because I'm wearing that same shirt today and am almost as big! Yeah, so exciting that the time draws near. You are often in my prayers, and I hope the waiting is peaceful and the delivery is quick and smooth. Will look forward to hearing your news. :>

Isn't it funny to know that this time next week, just a regular ol' week, and your life will have changed so much...again...for the better.
Peace of another lovely birth story be with you and your family!

Can't wait to hear the story and see the pictures of this new arrival. If you don't have this little one by Tuesday, maybe we'll slip you a castor oil mickey ;-) hehe

I can NOT believe it, this pregnancy seemed to go by so fast! I haven't been on RGT much, but do know I think of you and your beautiful family often and will be praying for this little one's birthday!!!
