It's getting to be time!

Time to meet our new baby girl!  Yes, a belly pic... this past week at 37 1/2 weeks pregnant... there I am... :) 

On Tuesday, July 31, we will be meeting our newest daughter!  We are excited, nervous, anticipating, and so ready to meet her!  All the things new parents are usually feeling, I'm sure!  Since our daughter will be delivered via c-section, we already know the date and even an estimated time of the cesarian section, which is a blessing to be able to plan our lives around it, but also nerve wracking! :)

We have a wonderful group of friends and family that are stepping up to help us through this next month as I recover from the surgery and we adjust to life with our ninth child.  We are grateful to each person that has stepped forward to help us during this time, especially with Wesley's care, since I will be unable to lift him for the next 4-8 weeks after the baby is born.

And why do we keep calling her "baby"??  Right... her name still isn't chosen :).  We have narrowed it down to just two names now, though, and we look forward to meeting her and deciding which name best suits her!

We have had a wonderful, exciting, productive, and FUN summer so far, and all of us that understand that this baby will be joining our family soon are looking forward with great anticipation to meeting her and welcoming her home!  And those that don't quite understand it... well, they will soon be met with that reality and I am excited to know that I think that every one of them will have a great response to their new baby sister :) :)
