He's coming...

Hey all!
So I just had my last OB appointment. I knew it probably would be since last week the other doctor had said that I could be induced next Monday. But I asked the doctor today, and instead I am going to the hospital in the morning! It's pretty crazy. He could still come before that, but if not we will have birthday's one day apart. :) I am SO excited! It is such a relief to know what is going on!! Thanks be to God! He has worked everything out! YEAH!!!

Prayers answered and still needed to be prayed...

You have answered my call. Thank you for being there for my dad. Thank you that his surgery went well and was a success. Hold him in your arms as he recovers and give him Your strength.
Lord please heal Buddy and repair his wounds both physical and emotional. Please hold Thiry, Amon, George and Callie in your arms, and give them peace as they wait for your healing.
In the power of the Name of Jesus the healer and Savior-

For those of you out there who read this prayer my dad is doing well. Buddy is Justin's uncle and was severely bitten by a dog on Tuesday night. It was so bad that he was admitted to the hospital. While there his blood pressure dropped, and his kidneys are having trouble. Please join me in praying for the health and recovery of these two men.
Thanks- Allison


There is this supposed frantic cleaning stage that expecting mothers go through just before the baby is born. I always thought this was a funny concept. For those of you that know me well, cleanliness is not one of my defining character traits. :) I usually clean because I have company coming, or because my husband is going crazy in a mess that doesn't really bother me.
There was no nesting before Elizabeth arrived. I could not have cared less. Yesterday however, I had my first nesting experience. I just have so much around here that I look at and want to get cleaned! (And honestly in the last 2-3 months Justin and I have devised a cleaning system, so our house is cleaned from top to bottom every 2 weeks.) But yesterday I washed dishes, completely cleaned out and wiped out our refrigerator, and swept and mopped the kitchen and dining room.
Maybe it wasn't nesting, but I don't think that has ever happened to me before...
Anybody else have nesting stories???

My First Post

Hello Bloggerland.
This may seem silly, but this is my birthday present to myself. I don't always feel like I have a lot of time, and I probably should not use my time this way. But I enjoy reading other people's blogs so much that I thought I would start my own.
It is my quest for this blog to be a positive place. I have a tendency to complain a lot, and so I will try to keep this blog upbeat. Since I think most of you know how much I love the midwest.... And hopefully it will give me a place to share with you all of the blessings that God has given me and remind myself of those too. :)
If you are wondering I will probably not ever post pictures of my kid (soon to be kids) here, but I hope to link another password protected site to this so that if you actually know me I can share photos with you. I realize that may be a little overprotective, but oh well.
Someone asked today how it feels to be 26, and honestly I didn't know what to say. I don't feel different. And maybe it is just because kid #2 is almost here, but birthdays for me just aren't the way they used to be. No big hoopla, no big rush, it's just nice to hear from the people you love. So far the best part of my day is that Elizabeth has sung me "happy birthday" 3 times. I am sure I will hear it again. What warmth that little voice brings to my heart.
Thanks for reading this, and sharing in my life.
