What a Day It Will Be

We were able to have another peek at Asa yesterday.... He is absolutely adorable and he makes tons of facial expressions.  We saw him smile, frown, look like he just ate something that tasted bad... and my favorite....he stuck out his bottom lip like he was pouting!  I just kept saying "awww, he's so cute... oh, look at him... he's precious...."  I almost felt like I shouldn't know so much about him at this point.  The womb is referred to as a "secret place" in the bible - it almost seems wrong to look in there in such depth and to see his personality while he's still in my womb.  But I still loved every second of it.

The tech asked us if we knew if it was a boy or girl.  When we told her boy, she said "this is our first boy today, they've all been girls.  Matt said "we've had our two girls" and smiled at me...

Asa looks good and appears healthy.  They first estimated he was 9lbs 2 oz, but then after doing a couple more measurements and taking an average said 8lbs 6oz.  So hopefully he's coming soon cause every day he's packing on the chub! :o)  They can also be wrong up to a pound in either direction.  I LOVE chubby babies and like them big - but there are different thoughts on how big a baby should be for a VBAC.

I'm excited to meet him.  Can't wait to kiss his chubby cheeks and take him home.  What a day it will be. Please pray he'll come soon.

Matt's home today and we just all went to visit Rachel, which very rarely happens.  It was nice.  When we pulled up he complimented how nicely I've decorated her grave.  Definitely felt good to hear, especially from my husband :o)  We stood there looking at her stone and just marveled at how sparkly it is when the sun hits it.  I've never seen a stone like it and since it was shipped from India, we didn't see it before we ordered it so we really didn't know what it would look like, which had me anxious for months waiting for it.  The sparkles seem so fitting for a little girl (even though the stone is more adult-like) and make me think about the jewels on her crown in heaven.  I bet it's beautiful.  I bet, just like the stone, when I finally see her again and her crown in person, I will marvel at their beauty.  What a day it will be.
