Coming Soon to a Hospital Near You!
Rachel went to the obstetrician yesterday and found out that she is 1.5 cm dilated and her cervix is pretty much completely efaced.
In other words, we'll probably have a new baby out here with us in the next few days. I'm really looking forward to it. A brand new baby is very exciting and exhausting. As something of a veteran, I can tell you that babies cry, a lot. They cry when they are hungry, when they're dirty, when they have gas, when they can't communicate (i.e. all the time), and even when there seems to be no reason in the world to cry.
But, there's something about them that just makes you want to protect and love them. Most would say it's the Greek love storge, but I think it's the knowledge that that innocent, perfect being is straight from God with a pure, beautiful spirit and soul. I'm looking forward to holding this new creation. Please pray for us and him. Noah is about to ride out the deluge.
