Here's why I know

...that Lincoln Walker Dooley will be arriving soon

He's due in exactly 1 week!

Sweet friends are asking me how I'm feeling & if there is anything they can do. We actually have a friend who said she is willing to come sleep at our house w/ Annerson if I go into labor in the middle of the night! Isn't that awesome?

I'm having a very hard time making any kind of decision.

I finished my weekly homework for the Breaking Free Bible study I'm doing 4 days early just in case he comes this weekend.

I shave my legs every time I shower.

It is very uncomfortable to sleep.

I'm swelling a little in my calves & ankles.

I keep the laundry hampers empty so there will be no dirty clothes when we get home from the hospital.

Every time I buy deli meat I think,
"Hmm. Will we be able to eat this in time?" (don't panic, my OB says deli meat is not bad for pregs)

When I kiss Annerson goodnight I wonder if this will be the last night she's an only child.

Lex & I are communicating well, spending great time together & are overall stronger & healthier than we've been in a very long time.

I don't look forward to running errands or getting out as much.

I'm filled with peace.

I'm filled with joy.

I'm filled with anticipation of how this is all going to play out.

I fill God's presence all throughout the day.


How I know Annerson is ready to meet baby Lincoln

1. ) This morning while she was drinking some milk she stopped, looked at me, and said, "Lincoln?". It was totally random & adorable.
2. ) I asked her before putting her in her bed last night if she was ready for Lincoln to come live with us and she replied, "Ready!"
