Almost Time

Tomorrow is the day we meet our baby girl! I am very excited, a little nervous, but I think mostly I am not going to believe it is really happening until I see her precious little face.

Erik was off today and will be off until Monday so that it is also very exciting. Today we took Matthew to Chuck E. Cheese for the first time. He had a blast! We played games, ate pizza and won some tickets. It was great, I must say the amount of tickets they were asking for certain things was crazy, but Matthew didn't seem to mind. Then Erik thought maybe we should stop at Walmart and get Matthew something a little special. Matthew is really in to monster trucks right now so he was beyond delighted to pick one out to actually take home. Matthew said "Daddy is really (s)poiling me today". It was a super fun day.

Mom came this evening to take Matthew to her house. We have to be at the hospital tomorrow at 5:30, so she was nice enough to take him this evening. Matthew knows his baby sister is coming soon, but he does not know it is going to be tomorrow. I am really praying he will do well at Mom and Dad's. He has spent the night with them plenty of times before but just one night at a time. I must say me and my boy are tight and I am going to miss not being with him as much the next couple of days. One a side night, he has been SO good, near angelic the last few days and he keeps referring to me as "my sweet little cupcake". How cute is that? Boy, do I love that kid.

I will post pictures just as soon as I possibly can! Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers!

OH MY GOSH I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU THAT I AM TYPING IN ALL CAPS!!!!
COngratulations and I can't wait to see pictures. Is it a little stupid I'm kinda sad I'm not going to meet her? When you get a minute, like that will happen ever, send me your address and I will mail your baby gift!
HUGS for you and that sweet new one to be...

PS. Matt would like your husband to be warned that even though he has done this before with his first child, beware that the ambilical (sp?) cord is tied off well before he cuts it or else the blood may spray him in the face. This has never happened to us.

Megan - I Can't believe the day has already come!! I am just so excited for you!! I'll be praying for you as I'm sure you will experience all those familiar and unfamiliar emotions again of having a baby. Blessings to you and Erik (and Matthew and Baby Girl). Can't wait to hear her name!! Perhaps Grandma and Grandpa can take Matthew to Walmart to buy his sister a gift. That might be special. He seems like a real tender kid and he might enjoy picking something out for her.

xoxo! erin
