My Swiss Chard!
Your are officially now considered full term, even though your due date is still three weeks away. Hallee you weigh approximately 6 1/3 pounds & measure a bit over 19 inches, head to heel, like a stalk of Swiss Chard, who knows what that is! We went to the doctors again this week and we are still only 1 centimeter dilated so we are just waiting for you. I have been having little contractions & cramping but nothing major yet. Your daddy is getting more & more anxious everyday...you better hurry up or he is going to make me walk everywhere! :)
This week your daddy & I celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary! I truly can not believe how fast time goes, it does not feel like over 11 years ago we had our first date. I can't wait to tell you all about how your dad & I met & feel in love. I can truly say that I love that man more today than the day I married him & I know God is going to continue to strengthen our relationship in the many years to come. To celebrate the two of us went to Disneyland & just walked around, I can't really ride much right now. Then we had a nice dinner at home & just enjoyed each others company. I can't believe that this time last year is when we decided that we were ready to have a baby & here you are! God is SO good!
We also had the amazing pleasure of attending your Daddy's commissioning ceremony. Your daddy had been working so hard to become licensed, he finished his Masters of Divinity last year, wrote a really long theology paper & went thru a long interview process. Well all of his hard work officially paid off, this week we got to celebrate him. The ceremony could not have been more perfect. We affirmed his calling in ministry, I wish I could have written down all the encouraging words people had to say about him. Your father is extremely gifted at the ministry God has called him to & I look forward to you sharing that journey with him. Your daddy is officially Pastor Michael Scott Brook, so proud of him!
Hallee we are ready for you to come! Your crib, swing, bouncer, car seat, clothes are washed, hospital bag is packed we are just waiting for you. I know you like it in my belly & I have enjoyed being pregnant but we REALLY want to meet you! Love you more then you know sweetie!
