One more week!!


This time next week Riley will be here! I can't believe it...the pregnancy has really gone by quickly. I am getting so excited/anxious/nervous. I am praying that she will be healthy and feed well. That's what I'm most worried about--feedings. I don't want her to be treated like a "sick" baby when she's born (although I don't think she will but it's still on my mind). And that Sawyer will be a great big brother--I know he will be. I'm just going to have to watch him like a hawk. When I ask him how he's going to help me with Riley, he says "I'm going to hold her." We've been reading his "I'm a Big Brother" and "Our New Baby" books and talking a lot so I think he's ready. Am I ready? I hope so!!


But I think he's just as excited to be going to see Disney on Ice (Lightning McQueen and Mater will be there) next weekend :)

Wow, in a few days you'll have her in you arms, how exciting! We all can't wait to see her. She'll be a beauty, just like the rest of our cleft babies! Prayers and best wishes!

I cant wait to hear the news that Riley is here. Beaudrick is doing great. He had a hard time feeding at first, but now, all is great. Pretty soon, they'll be going thru surgeries together. my how time flies. Good Luck our prayers are with you.

I hear Riley has made her debut and all is well! I praise God for His work in her and that she only has a small cleft lip! See how good my God is? Love you! Can't wait to hold her!!!
