Wanna see something gorgeous?

Twenty-eight weeks down, twleve to go... Little Man Royal is set to make his debut on November 17. And who wouldn't want to go ahead and be born into the arms of such a beautiful mama?

We were very blessed from a visit from Renee and her belly over the weekend, and though it was brief, it was excellent and theraputic to sit around with a wonderful friend and talk about the past, present and future. Annabella was very excited, and definitely tried to monopolize Renee's time playing "store" among other things. Jake very wisely concluded that Saturday was an excellent day for he and Annabella to have a nice long date that included fishing, visiting a Christian music festival at one of the downtown parks, and an entire Lugnuts (minor league baseball team) game, complete with fireworks. So, some much-needed girlfriend time was available, and I was so grateful that my friend was able to meet my youngest, who showed off her beautiful, quiet personality. I can't wait to meet her little guy!

..."Because of your father's God who blesses you, because of the Almighty, who blesses you with blessings of the heavens above, blessings of the deep that lies below, blessings of the breast and womb. Your father's blessings are greater than the blessings of the ancient mountains, than the bounty of the age-old hills."

Genesis 49:25-26

Renee' is gorgeous! Can't wait to meet little Royal, either!
Seems like all my "girls" are becoming the most adoreable, wonderful mommies in the whole world!!!You girls are so blessed to have this rich friendship that has spanned so many years...I remember how Renee' "chose" you to be her friend when you were freshmen at Finney. God saw this day even then! :)
I know you both have a depth of understanding of your role as godly women that not many young mothers have,.... I am so proud of you.
I love you all!
