Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

thurday. baby. induction. woah. woah. woah.

this is one of those posts you've all wrestled with -- there are things to say, but the proper way to formulate your thoughts is as elusive as all get out.

so, we'll stick to the cold, hard facts. maybe the feelings and surrounding details will miraculously form themselves eventually.

the news is this: grayson will be here in no more than two days.

either he will decide to be born today or tomorrow or he will come when we gently prod him to do so beginning thursday morning.

yes. i'm having an induction thursday. it's elective. i'll be 39 weeks.

i am not 100 percent settled with this decision, but i'm somewhere in the 90's. that combined with the fact that the extent of my readiness for this child to be outside my body and in my arms cannot begin to be conveyed, and we're going for it.

there ya go.

mark it on your calendar.

grayson reed will be available for autographs later this week.

yay!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait! Can't Wait! Can't wait! And hey, one of the major perks of an induction - the night before take a long bubble bath, shave, paint your nails, get pretty! I did that with Mason, and it was, oh, so nice.

I can't wait!

I am so happy for you I know that you looked miserable on Sunday. I am also praying that things will go perfect fine and you will be ready in the only ways you can. ready to see that wonderful baby boy but not the pain. I am so excited that you are going to get to meet your sweet baby. Sorry I am hyped and I keep repeating myself. God Bless you all during this time.
