Let the 35 day countdown begin!
We enjoyed a fun visit with Elijah, Maye, and the rest of the Goff-Horton family. It was the first family reunion style visit since Grandma Goff has been out of the hospital. It was so good to see her and the rest of our aunts, uncles, and cousins. Then on Sunday Momma and Daddy came down to SC to celebrate the 4th with us! We had great services Sunday morning and night with our kids presenting a patriotic program and Joshua preaching that evening. Then a church family cookout in the fellowship hall following the service. On Monday, we enjoyed more time with Momma and Daddy-shopping, and Momma helping me organize the nursery.
August 11 is only thirty-five days away! I'm so excited to hold our sweet little one and see Joshua hold him too! Maybe he'll come early...that's sounding pretty nice about now...We had another Doctors appointment today. Ethan is growing strong, with a heartbeat of 168 bpm and measuring at 35 cm. We were given the ok from Dr. Phillips to go to junior camp next week. So things are progressing well and right on schedule.Babycenter.com says, that he is tipping the scales at 5 1/4 pounds and 18 inches long. Wow! No wonder it's difficult to get comfortable and I feel like I'm permanently carrying around a watermelon! (Must be why I love to eat it all the time) LOL. Most of his basic physical development is complete now, so this is the time he'll gain a bit more weight from here on out and continue multiplying brain cells.
Thank you, Lord for the family you have blessed us with!
