Four More Days!

Today was a beautiful day in Corpus Christi,warm and breezy. I had lunch with our birthmother at little buffet place called Souper!Salad. I thought it was a pretty cute name. The buffet wasn't too bad, either. We had pleasant conversation as if we saw one another on a daily basis. Then, I took her to JC Penny's for some nice gowns to wear in the hospital. It's always neat for me to see how much we have have in common...in the things we wear, like, eat, etc... She was dressed very cute and looked really good. She gained quite a bit of water weight last week, 6 pounds she said. It wasn't really noticeable. She's carrying Jack fairly high. He hasn't "dropped" or anything, but that's why she had a c-section with her first child. She isn't very tall and the baby has nowhere to go. She said she can feel him when he moves from side to side, but I haven't felt it. She hasn't offered, and I always feel bad for pregnant women when everyone assumes they have the right to touch their belly. I'll wait for an invitation. Only 4 more days! We have to be at the hospital at 5am on Tuesday.

Cindy,
You and your family are in my prayers. What an exciting time for you! I love to see your questions and concerns. This time in 3 months, all of the questions be answered and the concerns will be confidence. Jack is one blessed little boy to have you for his mother. You are going to do fine. It is amazing how fast we adapt to our new situations. This will be no different. You are going to be a pro in no time! Hang in there, the best is yet to come! Donna

Thanks Donna~
You are so sweet. Kevin arrived in Corpus Christi today, and after a couple hours by the pool, I'm on a much more even keel. I can't wait for you to meet him and our little Jack the next time you come south. :)
