Come out come out whenever you are!

So it's February 13th and guess what? I'm still pregnant! Baby boy made a miraculous flip at the last minute and bought us a bit more time for him to come naturally and on his own. However, it's been a week and no such luck! It looks like we may have a Valentines Day baby after all. :-) Tomorrow we are headed in for our re-scheduled c-section, and I can't be more excited to meet my funny little Valentine.

This morning, my last as a mother of one, I took Evan out for a special mommy-son breakfast at Chic-fil-et. I'm so thankful for this unexpected and extra time I get to spend with my first little boy!
This is my last official day with "the belly." Of course, who knows my water could break before I finish this blog and we may see him even sooner!  In any case, I am filled with gratitude for this new life and can't wait to meet this new baby boy, whichever day and however way God has perfectly planned for that to be. :-)

I spy January

Here are some snapshots of our January, courtesy of the Iphone. There's just something special about finding these captured memories in your cell phone bank-these are the slices of life too precious to wait for the real camera. And for one reason or another, whether they make you laugh or give a sentimental sigh of "awww,"you're so glad you had your phone with you to freeze that moment. :-) Will I ever print these photos out? Probably not. Is the quality the best? Nope. But am I gonna blog them to ooo and aaaaa over for all time? You betcha!
Yes, that's our dog making himself comfortable in the infant carseat...
