In MANY ways, I cannot wait to meet our baby girl and know her and love her. I cannot wait to know what she will be like. The unknown of the past months has been so hard. Just to know Grace, I cannot wait!
In other ways, I am so afraid and anxious about Grace's birth. Forget the actual birth, I'm afraid/anxious about being responsible for her life! As we continue to learn as much as we possibly can about Grace while I am pregnant with her, we continue to pray for wisdom regarding decisions for her.
More than anything, I cannot wait to love Grace...to hold her, to see her face, to care for her.
In other news...
-I passed my glucose tolerance test! Thank you for praying!
-We have a regular OB appointment this week with Dr. B, and we have an ADU appointment next week.
-We celebrated Grace this Christmas! We had Chad's family Christmas Wednesday before Christmas, and we traveled to Pontotoc to be with my family Christmas Eve after I got off work. Everyone loves Grace so much already! Aunt Lori gave her a beautiful bracelet with pearls and aquamarine (Grace's birthstone). Pawpaw and Nanny gave Grace her first stuffed animal and a recliner for her room. Aunt Kristen gave her a sweet outfit and a purple pillow pet. My parents gave Grace a diaper bag, some pictures for her room, her first ball, and a stuffed purple and pink puppy.
Please continue to pray for us over the next 10 weeks as we prepare for Grace's birth. Our lives are forever changed by our baby girl!

A white Christmas!
