As I Boldly Go Where Many Women Have Gone Before…

 

 

Tomorrow is the big day. 

Some of my family has arrived from Oregon to be in the first round of the Isaac-Welcoming-Committee.

And I kind of feel like how I felt when out-of-town guests started arriving for my wedding.  Like it is all becoming real, and there is no turning back now.  (Not that I wanted to, Brian- kiss!kiss!)

So, regardless of your religious preference, I am now accepting prayers for tomorrow.  Specifically for:

1) A speedy delivery

2) A healthy baby

and

3) A NICE STRONG EPIDURAL.

See you all on the other side!

(All together now, “WOAH, Nelly!”  And I’m not sticking it out.  My back just bows naturally under the weight of Isaac’s sheer girth)

You are so ready! Look at that belly! I'll be praying for you. Have fun while watching Brian eat his breakfast, since you won't be able too. I always hated that.

Good Lord, that is one big baby. LOL! I only say that b/c I know. Hayden was 10lbs 10oz and then there was the triplets. :)

Good luck with everything. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Can't wait to meet the little big guy. :)

Our Father in Heaven,

Please make sure Caitlin gets nice nurses with small hands, a healthy baby, and an anesthesiologist who administers spinal blocks like a champ. But not necessarily in that order.
I ask this through your son Jesus Christ, Amen.

You still look fabulous!

And check on all of the above for prayers!

And I love that you're wearing you special Christmas gift from Brian - very sweet!

Here's hoping those ice diapers work well for you, too!

Looking forward to the updates!
