Well it is Friday afternoon and the mama to be is catching a quick nap, and my visit is almost over. Mel and I have put in quite the week. We have officially finished the nursery, and we have spent the last couple of days washing all her windows inside and out (WHO knew that "nesting" can strike Grandma's too, haha). Now washing windows is a chore WHEREVER you live, but trust me, living ON a dairy presents a whole new set of challenges. Can we say flies? And dirt? And wind? And we certainly can't forget 104 degree heat...and oh let's add in a 8 month pregnant lady and my arthretic knees, haha...we were a sight. Oh my goodness I am not going to lie, it was QUITE the chore; but well worth the effort as they are now GLISTENING in the sunlight. We have also been giving the rest of the house a deeper then usual cleaning in preparation. I have soooo enjoyed my week (in spite of the chores ~ I always have to whine a little, lol). I was able to meet her doc on Monday and I REALLY liked him. He seems to be the perfect combination of laid back, yet totally "on it" if you know what I mean. We got some 3-D pics of little Sam but I don't have a scanner so I can't show you. WOW is all I can say on how well you can see what he looks like. From what I can tell at this point, he is a mini Mike, lol. He is measuring at 4 pounds 10 oz. which shocked both Mel & I as she just doesn't seem all that big, and she has got 5 to 7 weeks to go yet. I have been told they are not always accurate in these scans, so maybe he won't be HUGE after all, haha. But then again there are LOTS of giant genes on both sides so who knows. We also were able to go to their new church (not really new I guess as they have been attending over a year now) and again I was sooo pleased. Such a nice group of people and the minister seemed quite good, and preached straight out of the Bible. I honestly don't remember the last time I have gotten this good of visit and I am soo grateful I was able to come and spend this time with her. We are having NO idea of course if I will make it back here in time for the birth, but we are all praying it happens. But either way I will be coming again shortly to spend the first week or so with her to show her the ropes of caring for her new son. Soo excited. It is getting close now. Jeff & I will leave for home tomorrow and I am NOT looking forward to that LONG drive again. But I will keep these big lips shut as I am nothing but grateful for this time. I have put together a little slide show of the nursery. It doesn't really do it justice as it is just sooo cute; all ready and waiting for the arrival of Sam. I will put together another one after we get home to show you some other happenings around the dairy. I have visited as best I have been able to, and have done a lot more reading than commenting. I am looking forward to (kind of ) getting back to my usual schedule. Thank you soo much for all the prayers and good wishes...I am most grateful for them all.
