We Have a Date!!

My OB appointment went so well today. We did a non-stress test and Monster Truck (I'm having a hard time switching to Benjamin now) passed with flying colors. They were a little worried at first because he was so sleepy, but after the nurse put a buzzer on my belly, he woke up and showed off. : )

Guess what?!!! We have an official induction date. It is so bizarre to know this far in advance his birthday, but we are on the books for Thursday, August 14th! When I think of the journey we've been on- all the loss, the roller coaster adoption process, and then this miracle pregnancy- we now know the date we will finally hold our little boy. I'm overwhelmed with joy. I feel like I'm flying around on Cloud Nine today.

Plus, I just have to share with you how charming my King Charming really is. He gave me the gift of a house cleaner for two hours today. I'm heading out the door to have fun with my girlfriend and get to come home to a clean house. Then tomorrow he's taking my car to be cleaned inside and out. I am so spoiled and so grateful. I feel like this nesting thing has become a family affair as we've watched the time ticking closer and closer to THE DAY. : )

I'll have to change my little widget on the sidebar so the countdown days are more accurate.

Thank you for sharing in our joy!

Love,

How wonderful! Praise the Lord! I am so excited for you...

A maid! Its in the Bible, you know. The P31 woman had maidservants. I think we all need maid service. (I don't currently have a maid, just dreaming!)

Have a great week.

First - I am so excited for you and your family! I will walk on cloud nine with you!

Second - I agree with what truth4thejourney said, we all need a maid once in awhile!

PS the best gift I ever got for our wedding was a cleaning lady once a week for a year. Now I say for any birthday or anniversary gift that is what I want!!!

Wow, so exciting to actually have a date! I bet these last few weeks will just fly by (okay all of us that are pregnanat know that doesn't happen) but hey wishful thinking! I think Pat should have a talk with Mike about that maid thing, what a great idea! Love you and can't wait!

I'll be praying as August 14th approaches! I had a schedule c-section for my third and I loved knowing the date our baby would be born. We were able to get the other kids settled with grandparents and go out to dinner alone the night before we went to the hospital. We'll pray for a safe delivery and a healthy baby boy!
