The Calm before the Storm

I had meant to post the latest picture of Tabitha much earlier than this, but things have been hectic/crazy around here as of late. Trying to get all of the prep work at home getting the house ready for Tabitha, dealing with two unplanned hospital visits (one for Zane and a massive asthma attack [he's doing fine, don't worry] and the other for heart palpitations with Denita [don't worry, she and Tabitha were fine]) and all the other things life brings has kept me a bit busy.

So before things get any more crazy, here is the latest Tabitha picture:


You just have to marvel at modern technology. Thank you God for gifting people with the smarts to figure out how to do this.

Things should be much more interesting for the family by this time tomorrow. We head in to Austin to the hospital at 5:30am Friday if Tabitha has not made an appearance by then, so labor can be induced. Denita's been in a lot of pelvis pain (nothing to worry about, just signs pointing to the fact that due to her age, Tabitha will probably be her last child through the natural process) and in case of any unforeseen complications everyone feels that it would be safer for all involved to take care of things before the hospital goes to a low-staff schedule for the holidays.

I'll have cameras and the laptop with me, so if the hospital is WiFi equiped, we might liveblog for a bit. Else, expect an update Sunday or Monday depending on when she's released from the hospital and how everyone is feeling.

Until then, MERRY CHRISTMAS! And remember, Christmas is not at all about the gifts we give and it certainly is not about a fat guy in a red suit, it's about the greatest gift ever given... the fulfilled Promise of God through Christ Jesus.

Oh my goodness, look at those little lips, and that perfect little nose!
Congratulations to both of you, and to big brother Zane. Thank you for the update. I hope all goes well tomorrow. Please give Denita a huge hug from me.
