No words!

Here I am it's 12:30 in the morning. I was about to post pictures on our blog. I check my email real quick and my friend Cyndi has left me a message. It's funny cause it's kinda like a scavenger hunt. I go to one link only to find another link I have to go to. This one Daily I am amazed by God's love. Disney means so much more to our family than just Mickey Mouse. It's so very hard to put into words. Once you read what these precious precious friends have done for us you will be able to catch a glimpse of it. I am amazed, touch and so very thrilled. Funny thing is they know how incredible hard it's going to be to wait about opening the gifts. I promise to try very hard. Thanks ya'll! You know I love ya'll dearly and couldn't make it without ya'll!

So I am going to post my email that I just sent out to friends and family. Mainly to have it for later when I print our blog and use it to scrapbook. Also so that I don't have to retype everything here.

I am dilated to a 3 and 50% effaced. The pain that I am feeling is his elbow which is pushing into my belly button, his bottom and his hip bone pushing at the other spot that is hurting. The specialist said it's just that he has no room and that's the position he seems to be staying in. I am so very thankful it's nothing to do with the umbilical cord or anything wrong with the baby. I told the specialist I can handle the pain as long as I know the baby is safe.

The baby weighs 7lbs 5 oz. The specialist is not concerned about the baby's head getting stuck. He said he will just not drop if it's too big but he is thinking I should not have a problem delivering. WOOHOO!!! A huge blessing. A dear friend of mine that is a retired labor and delivery nurse gave me a peace of mind when she called me early this week and reminded me that God made our bodies for this and that I could do it. Well the specialist told me basically the same thing today.

Seeing him on the ultrasound today made me even more excited and anxious to get to see him. Thanks so very much for your prayers! We are getting closer and closer to seeing our little one.

Oh and we are not keeping his name a secret we have just not fully agreed. Well some of us have not. Dad wants to be the one to name him because he didn't get to name the girls. He has chosen Abraham Thomas and call him Abe. Abraham is because it's a name that Mike really likes. He wants an old, strong name. Thomas is after my daddy and brother. So I guess we will see when he gets here but of course more than likely the girls and I will give in and let daddy have his way. Don't tell him but we really like the name. We are just trying to add more excitement to our lives. LOL!!!

Here are some pictures from today of our precious baby boy. The first is of his profile. The second is one of his sweet little foot.
