Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our family blog. This may be your first visit here, or you may be a friend from across the globe, or family that we have just seen. Who ever you may be, thanks for taking the time to read about our little family, and all we are learning on this adventure the Lord has called us to live! Here you will find, the random thoughts, funny stories, prayer requests, and the journey our family and Jack is on with his battle with Leukemia.

our last day as a family of 4....

So today was our last day as a family of 4! Hard for me to believe sometimes that we will have 3 little boys to love on and our family is growing by 1 more tomorrow, and yet there have been many moments where I thought this day would NEVER come! Tomorrow morning, gosh, in a few short hours, we are heading to the hospital to be induced.

In case you were wondering why get induced and not wait it out- well, it is really due to the size of the baby and my past history of having my babies get "stuck" with something called shoulder distocia. Basically, they have broad shoulders and I have a narrow pelvic bone, and bone on bone can lead to difficulty getting the little guys out. Both Jack and Tyler had it (Tyler was by far the most difficult), and given the size they are predicting this little boy to be- well, it just doesn't make sense for us to let him keep getting fatter any more.

If you remember, 4 weeks ago he was almost 7lbs (give or take a little in either direction)..... SO as you can imagine, I am a little tempted to be anxious about the delivery and actually being able to get him out on my own. I am still hoping for somewhere in the 8lb range, since I have not gained any weight in the past month.

So today we celebrated Jack's second bday and enjoyed every minute we could with family and our boys. We are so excited to meet our new little guy, so curious to see who he looks like, and so happy to be just about done with being pregnant!!! Jordan plans to keep the blog updated during the day, so if you want to keep track of how things are going, you can come back here for updates!

We would love your prayers and are so grateful for all the support! Here is one last shot of my massive belly!!!! Can't wait to see my toes again!

I'm praying for you Tali...you're going to deliver on my Grandpa's 95th birthday...a special day to me...I wanted to deliver Madison 4 years ago on this day but she waited 6 extra days! I'll pray that all goes well with delivery.
