He's on his way . . . Go Go Baby Skyler you can do it!!

Oh I'm so excited I can hardly stay seated in my chair ~~ and if I had better knees I'd be jumpin' you know I would!! Even as I'm typing, my words would be all misspelled and jumbled (usually are anyway I know ~~ but that's a different post :0) from all the jumpin' and dancin' around, okay moving on :-) !!

Chase called us at about 1:00 this morning and they were at the hospital. At about 10:30 last night Tonya was having a bad back ache, so Chase thought maybe a warm bath would help, well it did. Her water broke ~~ WOOHOO ~~ Here we go!!

I'm just so excited for my husband. I'm not kidding he is just the best dad to Chase and step-dad to my Dakota that you could ask for. And this grandbaby? Well just get-out, because he is just over the top ridiculously in love with this little guy already!!! I love the heart my Father gave to my husband. He loves deep!! I've never been loved by another person on this earth the way that my man loves me ~~ NEVER!! So this grandbaby ~ the most blessed little booger ever!! We're just thrilled - thrilled I tell ya, yep thrilled!! (Okay so maybe grandpa isn't the only one excited huh?)

Well, I just thought I'd write early, because I'll probably be away from my computer when the little fella makes his entrance. But ya know if you my blog friends would want to help a sista out, I wrote Psalm 139:13-14 in my journal today, it was our (Dick and my) verse-of-the-day and I'd love it if you could pray it over our little Skyler boy today in thanksgiving to our GREAT GOD!! Yep we are all fearfully and wonderfully made and just in joy and thanksgiving I'm praising and praying these verses over this new little life coming into the world today. We serve a truly GREAT GOD!!

Let me just side note it here. I won't be able to be at the hospital today, because my mom has appointments that I'll be taking her to. So while your praying for little Skyler, my mom sure could use a shout out as well. We go this morning to get her (cancer) port flushed and then to see a Neuro-Surgeon. We found out at mom's last fall that she has something called Spinal Canalstenosis - which is basically a narrowing of the spinal canal, and mom's is up high on her spine around her neck. So if you'd pray for wisdom for us in making any decisions that might need to be made, that'd be great.

Well, I'll update later today (hopefully :0)

Love you,


  1. SOOOOOOOOOOO exciting about the baby!!!!!!!!! I am praying for your mom too!!!!!!! what are you "grandparent"names going to be????????
