The Latest Baby News

Kim now starts her weekly visits to the doctor. As of yesterday both Kim and Kathryn are doing well. The doctor determined that Kathryn has not dropped any, nor does Kim exhibit any of the signs of going into labor any time soon. That was good news to Kim because she has convinced herself she still has too much to do to have a baby right now.

The doctor also determined that Kathryn weighs a little over six pounds right now. Michael was just under seven pounds when he was born. The doctor estimated that Kathryn would be over eight pounds by her due date. I have several thoughts about this. First, apparently we are going to learn just how big and uncomfortable Kim can get. I feel so bad for her because she is now becoming miserable. Second, this changes the dynamics of our desire to NOT have another c-section. The doctor said we have about an 85% chance of a successful delivery without a c-section, maybe a little less. We are now trying to decide what to do. Third, don't …

This and that...

Here are some random quick thoughts and updates...

Kim continues to do well. We have another sonogram this week and then she begins the weekly doctor visits until Kathryn is born. Although we are a month away from the due date, I am convinced she could come at any moment. Every time Kim moans I start boiling hot water and collect clean towels (although I do not know what to do with them). We have been so blessed with baby stuff! Kim has almost got things squared away, which has been no small task.

Michael is doing well. He has developed a passion for Veggie Tales and praise music, and he continues to enjoy all sports. Plus, he enjoys fixing things and helping out with chores. How long will that last? He has an active imagination and is just plain silly at times. He gets that from Kim, who is terminally silly, and not from me, as I am consistently sober-minded. Oh shut up.

Our church just called a new Minister to Youth, Jordan Mims, who will begin next month. Jordan and Hollie…
