First of all - thank you SO VERY MUCH for all of your wonderful comments! I am so overwhelmed with all of the things you have written and how many of you took time to leave comments. I have treasured every single word you have written and I will probably go back and re-read those comments 100 times. I plan to somehow print them all out to keep in my baby book. Most of all - I'm completely blown away by how many "strangers" have been praying for me. THANK YOU! You have no idea how much that means to me. Something I said a lot in my prayers over the last year was "God, I know we have a lot of people praying for us - PLEASE hear them. I know in your word that you say when two or more ask anything in your name - that it will be answered" and I claimed that promise over and over. I believe that we have to claim the promises God has given us in His word. He knows our needs - but He wants to hear us ask for them so we can see His hand and give Him the glory when He answers them.
NOW - what have I been up to that I couldn't blog about - these are some things I wanted to share about but couldn't until now:
Here they are crying some more. I'm pretty sure they cried the whole three or four hours we were there. My parents are emotional people - I guess that's where I get it.
They are SOOOOO excited. They have wanted to be grandparents for such a long time. I think this has been harder on them than it has been on us.
This weekend we finally got to tell Scott's parents. We wanted to tell them in person and we knew we would be seeing them this past weekend so we tried to wait. We got there on Friday night and went out to eat and to play minature golf and got ice cream and didn't get back to the condo until 11. So it was so late when we told them and I was so tired that I didn't even think to take a picture of their reaction. We gave them a picture just like my parents and they were sooo excited. It was so fun to tell both of our parents.
My mom sent me a box of baby goodies and something I loved was she sent me the pregnancy journal she kept with me. It's so sweet to read what she was thinking when she was pregnant with me. What's not so sweet is that what she weighed when she delivered me was what I weighed pre-pregnancy. But she was 10 years younger than me and several inches shorter than me (I'm trying to justify here). She also sent me my own pregnancy journal and I've had fun trying to record all the events!
I spilled the news to a fellow blogger, Jenna, a little early and she sent me two precious onesies - I had to show you this one - I knew ya'll would love it as much as I did!
My aunt Linda and uncle Bob sent me this razorback outfit and sippy cup. I'm sure our child will have a lot of HOG wear!
Thank you again for your sweet responses but especially for your prayers!
