When will baby arrive?

We are patiently awaiting the arrival of baby Reed. He is due 17 days from now and we are so thrilled to meet him. I am dilated to a 1 and 30% effaced as of 36 weeks. No change for this week. With Logan and Abi I was induced and Cooper arrived 10 days before my due date. I am hoping he will arrive before January 2, but who knows. I have had to use pitocin with all my labors and would really like to not have to use any labor inducing drugs. I still want the epidural though. My water broke with Cooper but labor was not progressing so we had to use pitocin.

In the meantime, we are staying busy by trying to keep the house clean and laundry done. The kids and I spend hours a day doing crafts and coloring. I make my own homemade cards and the kids love to design their own with my supplies. Logan is actually becoming very talented at it.

Christmas is 9 days away and the kids are getting so excited. They are so happy that their cousins Caleb, Kyle, and Ann Marie are coming and Papa, Yaya, and Aunt Jojo. We are all thrilled that everyone is going to be together on Christmas. It is a blessing. We wish baby Catherine could be here but know that she will be spending her Christmas with Jesus himself. We love you Baby C!!!

Hopefully the next post will be more news on baby Reed. Until then, patiently waiting..............
