it's baby eve!

When I started writing this post it was titled "baby month." Since then I've been at the doctor's office for my weekly check up. Turns out my blood pressure was higher than it's been so the doctor scheduled an induction for Monday morning. (The most amount of time he'd allow for Baby Sister to get here on her own.) An hour later the office called to tell us the hospital's schedule is full for Monday so they bumped me up to this weekend. All that to say, Danny and I are leaving for the hospital in the morning to deliver this baby!

I'm all kinds of emotional mess right now. Nine months of pregnancy hormones sure don't help. This isn't how we saw this going but that doesn't mean it's out from under the authority of God. We're trusting Him.

Here we are in all our 39 week glory:
Lord willing, the next picture up here will be one of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. Thank you for your prayers!
