We are heading to the hospital in about 4 hours. We took this picture yesterday in the nursery. I really don't think I could get much bigger, so thankfully the time has arrived. Beyond the obvious joy of bringing Bennett home, I am looking forward to being able to SLEEP without acid reflux or the feeling of having a ten pound weight on my chest. I know, I know.... you all scoff out there and chuckle to yourselves over poor naive Lauren who has no idea what a lack of sleep looks like. Let me clarify. I know I will be up every 2-3 hours with Bennett for the first few weeks. However, what I am hoping is that I will get 2-3 hours of deep sleep. As it is now, I get about 20 minute increments, and if I am very lucky, I can go 45 minutes without waking up.
So, anyway, it is time. We are so ready. Rob and I had a very long prayer time last night and we ask for your prayers over the next week or so. We pray that the blood clot won't cause any problems, we pray for wonderful times with family and friends, and we mainly pray for a healthy baby girl. We can't wait to see her and find out if two recessive genes cancel each other out. People don't believe me, but I honestly think she might be a brunette. :-)
A family of red heads. Of course. And quite a fun one at that. Oh, and our last name is Webster. Hence the name, "The Red Webs." You may now proceed with your blog surfing.
A theatre loving, football watching, book reading Mom of 3 who loves the Lord, her husband and her golden lab. In that order. Oh, and she thinks her kids are pretty great too. Five seconds of reading this blog should tell you that.
A guitar strumming, video editing, picture taking creative dude. He loves Jesus, coffee, his kids and he thinks his wife is prety cool too. He dislikes exclamation points, comic sans font and the letter K.
