   I cannot believe how fast time has flown over the past few months!  It seems like we have been super busy, but yet doing nothing much at the same time.  So, here's a rundown of what's been happening around here....
     My sweet boy turned 3!  I can't believe how fast the past 3 years have flown by.  I am so proud of what a smart, sweet, all around awesome kid he is.  Of course, I know I'm biased but that's ok.  I LOVE this kid!  We had Eli's 3rd birthday party a few weeks ago.  I would upload pictures, but our internet stinks and is too slow!  It was a Star Wars party and it turned out pretty cute if I must say so!
     The sweet girls at work also gave me a baby shower for baby girl.  I got tons, and I mean TONS of cute girl clothes and bows!  So fun!!  Although, I think she will be bald just like Eli was!  We will see....SOON!
     Speaking of baby girl, she is coming in 3 more days!  That's right, 3 DAYS!  HOLY COW!  I am excited but so nervous at the same time.  I debated for months on doing a repeat c-section or trying VBAC.  My first section was super easy but yet I still kept thinking how awesome it would be to avoid major surgery if at all possible.  Well, Clint and I have talked it over for weeks now and we have done 2 size estimates to help me determine what I want to do.  Apparently, I grow HUGE children.  Now I know that the size of the baby is really not necessarily a determination of a successful VBAC, but I believe it can't hurt either.  At 36 weeks baby girl was measuring 40 weeks 2 days....pretty large.  Eli was very large even arriving at 37 weeks (8 lb. 4 oz) so I am expecting this baby to be a good size also.  Anyway, to make this long story shorter, I opted for a repeat c-section and I am scheduled for this Friday.  Yikes!  Please pray for a safe delivery for everyone involved.  And pray for my nerves over the next few days while I wait!
     So, I guess that's it in a nutshell.  Busy, but not too productive.  One final all you women out there who claim you get a burst of energy right before delivery.....ha!  I don't believe you!  I have been so exhausted that I can barely make it off the couch!  Seriously.  It's terrible!  But it will be worth it in the end!

Holy cow, I am so behind. Time has flown by. I can't believe she's almost here. So excited for you guys and I miss you guys. Can't wait to see her and meet her eventually. I'll pray that everything will go well.

Thank you!! I can't believe your sweet boy is already so big either. He's too cute!! Hopefully we can all meet up at some point and let everyone see all the new additions we've both added since you moved. Thanks for the prayers on Friday....I'm freaking out! :)
