Thank you everyone for all of your love and support while we transition to being a family of FIVE! Our new little lady has completed our family and brought so much joy (and sleepless nights) to our lives. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Looking at all THREE of my children can bring tears to my eyes. I’m just feeling very, very blessed.
It’s no fun going past your due date. I started to feel like April the giraffe….people kept asking when I was going to have the baby (um, I’m not God, I don’t know!) or worse yet, told me I better hurry up and have the baby. Like I could just snap my fingers and make it happen. That totally got on my nerves. Write that down as something to NEVER say to an over-due pregnant lady. To make matters worse, the week before I was due everyone in my house was sick. One week before my due date Hudson, Sadie, and I all got pink eye. And we had terrible colds too. Thankfully a call to the pediatrician got us all some eye drops….and our eyes looked much better two days later. Unfortunately as soon as we were better my mom and Jon got pink eye too. I was super nervous that I would go in to labor and one of them wouldn’t be able to go to the hospital with me due to the infection. But praise God we were all better before Annabelle came! God totally let me go past my due date so that everyone would be healthy before baby girl made her debut.
And now don’t hate me, but this post is getting LONG. Come back on Monday for part 2….where we get REAL. I promise you don’t want to miss it.
