Cheeks!

Last week I had my 36 week doctor's visit along with a somewhat urgent ultra-sound. My placenta has been very low and we were concerned it might not get out of the way for Miss G. The low placenta isn't a threat unless bleeding occurs and it also requires a automatic C-section no matter what. Much to my surprise and my doctor's...we are in the clear and it appears after seeing a detailed ultrasound that normal labor and delivery will be just fine for Georgia whenever she's ready to make her appearance. God's been gracious and patient as I've had some ups and downs in the last few weeks. No surprise He's been more than faithful and provided just who or what I've needed as reminders that He's in control.

Georgia is due April 23rd, but because I've had early babies with both Brooks and Barrett we are scheduled to induce on April 15th. I actually asked my doctor if she would induce for a few reasons but mostly so we could try to plan Georgia's arrival and Honey's arrival around the same time. Honey will be here on the evening of April 9th. I had a good experience when Barrett was induced so I'm up for the challenge this time. However, I really don't think Georgia Liz will be that patient. Almost daily I wonder if "today is the day". I've had some random contractions as well as the usual Braxton Hicks. I'm not miserable but feeling the END and more than ready. I mostly want our Honey here because she takes such good care of ALL of us. I will be very disappointed if she missed Georgia's birthday but I really just can't wait for her to be right here in our house doing what she does best!!

Last week when we were having an ultrasound the Radiologist switched his machine to 4D...I had no idea it was possible on the machines here. I got very excited and he was so kind to try to catch a glimpse of GE's little face. We waited for the cord to move and for her to stop sucking her thumb and then this...tongue out and chubby cheeks. Normally they don't give us printed pictures here but I begged for just one and he actually caught this expression. Its a little bit hard to see but there's no missin' those cheeks!



This miracle is more than I can bare some days. I can't wait to hold our sweet baby girl and watch her in the arms of her sweet Daddy. The day is near. We love you to pieces little Georgia. See you very very soon!

Wendi! I know exactly how you feel! There is nothing like holding my sweet baby girl and I love watching Brett with her! I can't wait to see pictures of everyone. You boys are going to love her! My boys have been so good with Julianne! I'm praying your mom makes it in time! There's nothing like having your mom to take care of you! They always know what you need and what needs to be done before you even think of it!
