Big Boy!

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

I had 2 doctor's appointments on Friday and they confirmed that Eli is still growing and that he is healthy. He is estimated to weigh 6 pounds 3 ounces as of Friday. He is in the 71 percentile for size... He is head down and very low. So, we are just playing the waiting game to see when he'll arrive. Tomorrow starts week number 35!!! I can't believe that I only have 5 weeks left.

I finally got all of the random stuff out of Eli's room and it is slowly beginning to look like a nursery. I'll share some pictures later. I've started to wash all the clothes, bibs, blankets, etc. that are rolling in. Our family and friends have really been great and we have tons of nice things to bring Eli home to -- I'll take pictures of his closet too...

Please pray that Eli will stay put for a couple more weeks to make sure he is fully developed and "done". As much as my feet and hands hurt and as big as my belly is I want to make sure he is as healthy as possible.

I'll ask Jay to take pictures of me this week and you can see just how big my belly is...

How exciting!!! I am praying daily that Eli will come out when he's "done" (along with a million other little prayers like the car seat being secure LOL)

I'm ready to meet him but I am trying to be patient and remember that his (and your) health is the #1 priority; I still can't wait to meet him though!

You're almost there!! I am so thrilled for you guys, it's been such a long wait for you! I like to think (for myself anyway) that the wait makes the miracle all the more special! You TRULY appreciate the amazing gift you have been entrusted with! Praying for a safe and healthy delivery for mom and baby Eli!

Em ~ you'll be happy to know all is well with the car seat... I had it professionally check out!!!

Deedra~ you are exactly right -- Eli is our little miracle and we can't wait to raise him and love him. Only a few short weeks left to wait! God is good!!!!
