First for Rachel and Juliette, then Kelan and Kaylee, then Chase and Ryan.  So, we're missing:  Tommy, Joshua, Jack and Jase (4 more boys -- not many girls in this group!)

That's a lot of boys.  Sounds like hubby's family.  There are only two or three girls in his generation (his dad had 7 siblings); almost all the cousins are boys.

I wanted to update everyone about our grand baby...
If I haven't yet... Its a GIRL!...yay!
Her name is River. Middle name Leigh...we are so excited!
We are at 36 weeks now and she could be here anytime!
Last week we had a final ultra sound and learned our sweet girl has a cleft lip possible cleft pallet. She is also very small so there are concerns of a possible genetic disorder so specialist advises genetic testing after she is born. Normally they would do an amino but because were so close to delivery Dr feels its best to wait. We are learning all we can do we can provide the best care possible and also get doctors lined up for future surgery.
Its all going to be ok in the long run as we know God will provide and guide us all the way.
Please pray for her as well as her parents. Finding out so close to delivery has us scrambling.
Here's a 4 d ultrasound picture!!

Please keep us posted on this upcoming delivery!!  Can't wait to hear of her birth!  Aren't these ultrasounds amazing?  They still amaze me, since I had never seen one like this until my last grandson, Ryan.

Praying for the testing, the work that will progress in the future, and I KNOW that the Lord will take care of this, as He has it all in His hands!  Thank goodness we have Him to lean on, and know He is always in control.

Praying for little River, her parents and you all!!!    ;pray ;pray ;pray ;pray ;pray

Baby is up to 5 &1/2 lbs. 38 weeks so specialist says we're going to have a tiny baby. We shopped after appointment yesterday for some preemie clothes and diapers just in case. Today we see OB to see if DIL has any more cervical changes. Last week she was 70% effaced and dilated 2 cm. All bags  are packed and ready to go!!

Well don't forget, babies usually gain a pound a week the final weeks, so baby might be a little bigger than you think.  I'm so excited for you, and can't wait for the announcement

Praying for a safe and uneventful delivery of a gorgeous little one.

Don't forget pictures when you make your announcement.  You know we LOVE pictures!! 

 ;pray ;pray ;pray

Thanks so much y'all!
The weight isn't the issue as much as her body measurements. Her version is 38, 39 on friday. But baby measures 35 weeks. She is growing correctly just a shorter than normal length per* norm.
We're very happy she looks healthy as can be!
