Micah Is Here!!!!!

Our absolutely perfect and beautiful Micah
arrived today at 1:52 p.m.
He weighs 7lb 9oz
and is 21 inches long.
He has his big brother's mouth...
you just can't tell in the picture bc of his little hand.
(This Jeannie posting for Kate....Forgive me for not getting
a picture of Kate and Chuck with Micah!!! Those pics will come soon, though.
They should be home on Saturday. )

Micah Adams Von Glahn is Here!

Hey Guys. I'm making a post for Kate since she is in the hospital with baby Micah!! Kate had an appointment this morning and was so close that they decided to go ahead and send her to the hospital where they broke her water and gave her pitocin. He made his debut around 2:00 this afternoon after a short labor. Micah weighs 7 lbs. 9 oz. and is 21" long with lots of dark hair. Mama says that he looks a lot like David did as a baby and he is so far very peaceful. Kate and Micah are both doing great. She was up and getting a shower before 5:00!

Kate just wanted to make sure everyone knew their exciting news!!

Barbie and pregancy - unrelated to one another

I am upset. I just saw an advertisement for some kind of party girl Barbie. It's a cruise ship where Barbie can "swim and flirt" (yes, the commercial actually said that) then there is a bed where Barbie can take some sort of power nap, and a nightclub dance floor.

Are you kidding me? I want to get Rae some little girl toys for Christmas. Uh, not that one. Gross.

Still pregnant. Have appointment tomorrow. We'll let you know what happens.

Our Life

I haven't blogged in a week because I kept thinking that I would go into labor and the next blog would be about our beautiful new baby.

Unfortunately not.

I'm still pregnant. I mean, good grief. I was at 3 1/2 cm yesterday and the midwife said if I haven't gone into labor on my own by next Thursday then, if I want to, we will talk about an induction date. Are you kidding me? Of course I will want to! I'm very ready to have Micah here and settle into life with three kids. Sigh....

Speaking of life, it's still going on around here. David had some kind of wicked headache thingy on Wednesday. Not exactly sure what it was but he is better now. I took him to see the Nurse Practitioner and she gave us some anti-nausea medicine so he could sleep it off. He did. Bless his heart.

Rae is getting her big teeth in. She's pretty miserable. She's like her mama and is not into pain. She's also been coming up to me and telling me that she wants to poo-poo in the potty. Are you kidding me? I'm so not ready for that journey. She's going to have to stay in diapers for a little while longer.

Chuck worked so hard last week and got the house in town completely ready for the new owners so now we are just waiting on them to get their stuff together and we will close. We're excited. It's really nice to have him home on days like today (it's flooding here) and not have any projects hanging over our heads.

We have been so blessed by the Lord recently and yet in the middle of it all have one particular area that we really are having to trust Him for. Why is it so hard? After all we have watched Him do this should be no stretch for us. Our humanity gets on my nerves sometimes.

Okay, that's it. Maybe my next post really will be about the new baby.

We're In!

We are in our beautiful new home! Our awesome church family came and got us completely settled this past weekend and we are able to just enjoy it. Chuck is working hard on our house in town to get it ready for the new buyers and has been blessed to have some good help.

The kids already love it out here and David said, "There's my new home!" today when we came up on the hill. It was really fun to hear his excitement.

Now we are ready for Micah to come. There's a full moon tonight. Here's hoping!

Note To Self

Not To Self: Don't take two tired and hungry kids to eat at Subway. It could be disastrous. That's all I'm going to say about that. Need to lay down now from all of the trauma.

It's Official

Okay - It's official. We're moving. We've been planning this and praying about it for a while now but it looks like we're actually going to do it. We have signed a contract with a couple to buy the house we are currently in and we are moving to my grandaddy's house out in the country.

Deep breath.

It'll be good. I'm nervous. We're doing the move before the baby comes, which I think will be best, but I am a little concerned b/c it doesn't help my nesting urges. Anyway, It will be good. It will be good. It will be good. Boy, I'm nervous.

Maybe I'll have some pics up before the baby comes. Probably not knowing me.
