Sneak peekin' at the baby girl...


Here she is!

She's expected to arrive in about 3 wks but she already measures 7 lbs. 8 oz.s I think I'm in trouble!

But I'm loving the chubby cheeks! My older girls were in the 6 lb. range and were long and SKINNY! Even though they were not, preemie outfits fit them well for a couple of weeks. Maybe this girlie will actually wear newborn or 0-3 mo. size right from the start? Hmm... time to re-consider the going home I have packed for her...

From the joy of new life on Earth, on to the joy of new life in Heaven: My husband's sweet grandma went to be with Jesus this morning. She was probably so surprised to see her daughter, Christine, welcoming her at those pearly gates! I'm sure they are having a wonderful time there together today.

Love,

Its such a joy to read about your Grandmothers heart being in heaven. She finished her course, she kept the faith... rejoicing!

I can't wait to meet this sweet, chunky little one ~ I won't say my nickname for her on your blog! But just know I'm shouting it right now!

And just thinking of her reunion with not only Grampa Sonny, but also Christine. Oh, how jealous I am of her ;) Grateful for heaven

Oh wow! I have one little girl Madison who is nearly 7 now. You will never ever guess how much she weighed. Ok. Ok. At my 36week scan she weighed 10lbs 2oz. At the birth she weighed......get ready....a whooping 13lbs 3oz!!! and NO, I am not diabetic and actually don't have any history of diabetes in my family. Missy (her shosen nickname) was in 6-9mth clothes when she was one month. Thankfully she is normal now, and not roly!
I am not trying to scare you....but by most recent one, Aviana, weighed only 9lbs, which is small for a baby in my family. But I hope you don'y have to be tortured by the thought of a 13lbs baby squeezing out of you. I wasn't either...until it became a reality!
I am praying for you and that you have a safe and easy delivery!
I am happy that God is choosing to bless you with three adorable girls. I only have two!

Love
Josie
