Russell and I read some great news from some friends last week...welcome Samuel James Davis!! He came four weeks early! Russell immediately looked at me and said, "We've got to pack our hospital bag!" We immediately got on the ball! Since then, we've started packing our hospital bag, we consulted with and chose our pediatrician, we've started the process of adding Rhys to our health insurance, and we've done at least 4 or 5 loads of laundry, getting his clothes, blankets, etc. all washed and ready for him!
Russell has arranged and rearranged the nursery...still working on it to suit his fancy! :) I think we're both officially in 'nesting' mode, and we're so excited to introduce Rhys to his room and home once he ventures his way into the world! We're genuinely enjoying all these responsibilites and steps of preparation because this precious gift - our son - is becoming more of a reality!
Here we are...at 34 weeks!! Rhys is moving around A TON! :) Russell and I are amazed to see his body parts poking from within my tummy! It's weird, but it's so sweet! As Rhys grows in length and needs to stretch out, he's been kicking into my ribs! It tickles and even hurts sometimes! :) Again, it's all so WORTH it! We love all the movement because it's exactly what he's supposed to be doing right now!! "Keep it up, Rhys! Daddy & Mommy are eager to meet you, but take your time and incubate as long as you need!" :)
Russell and I just got back from Rhys' most recent dr's appointment :), and our doctor is so pleased with both Rhys' and my growth and development as we approach delivery!! We're healthy and right on target, and we absolutely praise our Lord!!
"Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name."
