Induction-Eve Thoughts

We are all set to have Grant tomorrow, Lord willing, and if hospital beds continue to remain open (really hoping there isn't a huge influx of laboring women that decide to show up tonight/tomorrow morning).  I don't know why, but I'm feeling so much more anxious this time around.  Maybe it's because I've done it twice already and know what to expect.  It may also be because he is our last, and I just want him to be here and healthy. The girls' births were both so quick and relatively easy, that I just pray this one is no different, but then again, every birth is different!

I know that our lives are about to change again (for the better, of course), but it seems so surreal that we are adding not only another family member, but a boy to our house of sweet girlies.  I am so comfortable and confident as a "girl mom", and I truly believe that I was made to have girls.  However, I have a feeling this boy may throw me for a loop.  I don't know anything about (nor do I care about or enjoy) trucks, tractors, trains, army/war things, construction, or really most things that boys like to play with and are interested in.  I just hope he really like sports, because thats the only thing "boy-ish" I can get into haha. I'm sure that he will have his share of toys, but with two big sisters, I'm also sure that he'll play with his share of baby dolls and princesses (I know my brother did with my sister and me).  He will be the perfect finale for our family, and I pray for peace tomorrow as we go through the labor and delivery process. I also pray that Grant will arrive healthy, happy, and safely.

Psalm 29:11

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.


  1. Will keep you all in my thoughts & prayers! Wishing you sleep and warm fuzzy feelings :)

  2. Praying for you today! For an easy, healthy, and quick birth for you and sweet baby Grant!
