A few updates!

I know that I haven't been keeping the blog up very well lately. We seem to be so busy, and by the end of the day I am too tired to blog! The pregnancy is going well, and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our little girl! I was having some contractions this past Monday, so we made an unscheduled visit to the doctor just to make sure that everything was okay. He said that I was having contractions, but that I had not begun dilating or thinning. We were relieved to hear that the baby was not quite ready to come yet, since we are just now 35 weeks. However, if I did go into labor, the doctor would not stop it. We did get some unexpected but exciting news while we were there! Dr. Barnes believes that I will not deliver before 37 weeks, but he is not sure that I will make it to July 25, which is our c-section date. Apparently when your mate is 6'5", you don't stand a chance of having small babies! We are excited at the possibility of having her here earlier, but we do want everything to be okay with her most importantly. Our prayer is that she will at least wait until July 16 because David has a week long class in Wilmore, KY right after the fourth of July and daddy will be in Kenya until the 15th!
Samuel is doing great! He is growing so quickly and we are really seeing the toddler boy in him! He is saying a lot more words than before and is learning to communicate his wants and/or needs. I think that he is going to be a great big brother, and that it won't take him long to get used to having a girl around the house. Although, pink seems to be the color that is going to overrun the house! Please continue to pray for our family as we get ready to make many new adjustments!

Happy Birthday Jessica!

I just wanted to let everyone know that today is Jessica is 25 years old today. I know that I am biased because I am her husband but I think that she is really great. She has done so much in 25 years. She has graduated college, married, become the wonderful mother of Samuel, and is now expecting her first daughter in July. The Lord uses her so much to minister to me as I serve as a pastor. She has really been a partner with me in all that I am doing at the church. She encourages her family, friends, and basically everyone who she meets. So Happy Birthday Jessica and thank you for all you do!
