Getting closer...

Just one more full day of the "Henderson 3". It's kind of scary and exciting! We had a wonderful day as a family. We did nothing really memorable, but it was nice to be together.

Oh, I did get my hair cut and highlighted today! That was nice! I figured since I had some time, I might as well indulge in something that rarely happens. (Pre-kids: haircut and highlights every 6-8 weeks; post-kids: MAYBE a haircut every 2 months and coloring my own hair with a box of Clariol Herbal Essence #20something). Today was a definite luxury. I'm not super thrilled with the results, but hey, it's "professional" so I shouldn't be complaining!

Tomorrow we are going to church and then out to eat lunch. My sister is flying in tomorrow afternoon and will be here for a week. My mom and step-father are arriving bright and early Monday morning, just in time to see Matthew and I off to the hospital (and my mom is staying for a week also). And, my in-laws are driving in on Monday morning. I don't know if everyone is more excited to see Nora or to see the new baby.

So, this is it for me. I'm hoping that my friend, Marshall, will be a "guest writer" for me on Monday afternoon and post all the details. Please keep us in your prayers! Specifically for:
  • A healthy baby
  • A "complication-free" c-section
  • A healthy mommy
  • Bonding between Nora and new sibling (i.e. Nora doesn't throw herself down on the floor and make a huge scene because she wants me to hold her instead of the baby)
  • Safe travels for all family members
  • A quick recovery
  • A nice time with family once we arrive home

Thank you so much for your prayers!

I'll close with some pictures of my two favorite people in the entire world (before it becomes my THREE favorite people).

Nightly ritual of reading books (with pacifier...she only gets the pacifier at naptime and bedtime...I wonder how often she will steal the baby's pacifier?)

Hey Dallas!

I am going to be praying all day tomorrow for that precious Henderson cherub to arrive safely! Call, email, write a letter, etc....just give me some details after you have a minute to breathe! I love you and won't be too far behind you.
