Jacob drew Jaron Posted by Hello

What a Blessing!

Well our church gave me a baby shower Sunday June 12th and I had asked for diapers & wipes only. I have plenty of clothes from Jacob and all the other necessities. So I got just that, TONS of wipes, 1055 diapers & $305 cash!!! So I am stocked up on diapers for atleast 3 months. What a blessing. Our church family is so supportive. God has been so good to us already and Jaron isn't even here yet. Chris FINALLY got a 1st shift position after working 3rd shift for 4 1/2 years. We are so happy, now he is home at night with us. I went to the doctor Monday 13th and I was dilated to 1cm and barely thinned out so I am going back next monday for another check up. I hope there is some progress. I am due the 28th and I don't want to wait much longer after that. Maybe they will induce if I go past my due date, we'll see. Jacob has been going #2 in the potty FINALLY!!! And just in time! Thank the Lord. He has been so precious lately. I have told him all along about Jaron's cleft and he knows what cleft babies look like. We were talking about it the other day and he was drawing on paper and wanted to draw Jaron so he did and drew his cleft lip, too. I almost cried. It is so precious. I'll see if I can attach it. Well I have 6 MORE DAYS and I hope not even that long. We'll keep you posted.

11 More Days!

I am so ready to have Jaron. It seems like these last few days are taking forever to go by. I went to the doctor for a check up Monday and I was not dilated at all. So I go back this Monday to see if there has been any progress. I hope I am dilated to 8 and ready to go. I am still very nervous about his feeding and all that but I am more ready to have him and see his little face than anything else. I have been having lots of braxton hicks contractions and they are not fun! And my hands and feet are starting to swell because it is getting warmer weather. I drink 64 oz. of water every day and still swell. Jacob is so ready to see Jaron. He said to me yesterday, "Guess what Mommy, Jaron's coming out, one day". He is very excited. Our friends had their baby last week and he held him and kissed his face and was so gentle. I was proud. I'll be sure to post a picture as soon as I get home from the hospital. Thanks for reading...
