The countdown is officially in days…17 to be exact!

We got to meet our nephew Tommy and I’m so in love!!!!! His mama did such a good job being in labor for over 40 hours!

We spent a week at my parent’s lake house and our brave little girl rode the tube and swam like a fish.

As of the 36 week mark I am 3 cm dilated and 70% thinned out already, which of course is when the time starts creeping because you feel like it could happen at any minute.

I actually did have a day last week where I thought “This is it!” I was having contractions about 5 minutes apart for over an hour. When I finally was able to lay down they slowed down which is when I knew we’d still be playing the waiting game. Why is the end of pregnancy the longest and hardest part?

We FINALLY got the nursery (almost all) set up! At least he has a place to sleep! Jerrub just has to build the changing table and hang a few pictures and it’s ready to go. It’s also Raelynn’s new favorite place in the house to play.

My nesting face has kicked in full force. So much that I’ve even tackled projects like white washing my fire place and have started redecorating rooms in the house.

Dear Lord,

Thank you! Thank you for allowing me to have a healthy and easy pregnancy once again. Thank you for blessing us with a baby boy, a great life to bring him into, and tons of family and friends to love on him. Please continue to be with me the remainder of the pregnancy and be present in the delivery room. I pray over the doctor and nurses that will be with us, I pray for a great delivery, and I pray for a healthy baby boy to enter this world when the day comes. Please be with us as parents to help raise him the way you want us to. Please give us patience and endurance through hard times and send extra patience and love when we need it most. I pray that Layton knows and loves you more than me or his Dad ever have. I pray that he will be a strong and kind boy. That he will accept others, look out for others, not worry about what people think, stay true to what he believes in, enjoy life, and make a difference in this world one day. Thank you for entrusting us with your son and help us to be the parents you intended for us to be and a good example for our little boy. We love you Lord.

Amen
