A breaking heart....

My heart is breaking right now. I just received word that a dear friend and fellow church member is giving birth to her precious daughter who is already in Jesus' arms. I don't know details, but what I do know is that this family needs lots of prayer right now. Please take a moment to lift up Erica, Jacob, and baby Kinley.

"An angel, at the Book of Life,
wrote down my baby's birth.
Then whispered as he closed the book,
"Too beautiful for Earth.""

Look at the lip!!! We say he is blowing bubbles/kisses! This was our final peek at baby Cayden. The next time we see him will be face to face. The ultrasound went very well. He has caught up on his growth and everything looks normal. I am kinda glad c-section is my only option, because he has a massive head!!!

We also had our first non-stress test to monitor his heart function. He is a trooper and a fighter...his heart appeared to be functioning perfectly. We will have a test every week up until the week he is delivered.

The most relieving part of the 34 week appointement was getting all of our anxieties out in the open with our Dr. I had been harboring them until we got a bit closer to the actual day. The Dr. knew I had a lot to express, but he has not pushed the issue. He was great at listening and responding to our every worry. Jesse and I were super relieved after the appt. Now we feel like we may be on the "homestretch."

As for me, I am feeling pretty good. The evenings are the roughest. I feel like I gain 25lbs a day just in the evenings! My blood pressure has remained normal. I have thought a lot about Braxton the last few weeks, and I know it will only get worse as we get closer to meeting Cayden. I am still not sure how I am going to hold up. We will have lots of support, so I know I will ultimately be ok.

We only have 22 days to go!!!!!
