So... I just recieved a phone call from my midwife, Louise... you remember Louise:
After reviewing the results of my urine test, the fact that my bloodpressure is creeping up again today and my platelet count is still low... They're inducing me... tonight.
I'm feeling a little shaky and anxious, but know that Our Lord is in control and perhaps he just wants to see how WELL I learned that "Life Lesson 101" aka: You are NOT in control.
I'm very excited to meet little Ava Marie and for those of you coming to the baby shower on Sunday, (stay tuned, my Mom will let you know the plans) ...you might even recieve news during the shower that she has arrived!!!
Today we even set her baptism date for October 22nd during the 4pm Mass. Mark your calendars, this child of God is on her way into the world and I'm sure not Shaun, I or anyone else will ever be the same!
Thank you everyone for your prayers. I won't have a computer, but will let you know when I get home, how everything goes.
- Marijanna and Shaun
- We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.
