We're on our Way


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. :-)

you look wonderful for being 9 months pregnant!! i NEVER looked that good! at 7 months people were already telling me i looked like i was exhausted and about to pop and surely i would go early (b/c i looked that bad). i'll be checking all day and praying for you and that you have an incredibly painless (hahaha, you're all laughing i know, but i've had one that was smooth and one that made me want to lose the entire lower half of my body) labor and delivery. can't wait to hear the news and see the photos!!! LOVE YOU!!
