33 weeks and Baby Guesses

I thought that since Peanut will be here soon, this would be a good time to record your guesses as to the details of this baby's arrival into the world. What is your guess? (Date, Time, Weight, and Gender)
Here is what we know:
Due Date: May 18
Morning sickness: yes
Carrying high or low?: Not really sure, but this is how I carried Naomi.

So, what is your guess? Leave a comment on this post and let me know your guess. I am looking forward to reading them. I might even try to get a little prize for the one who has the most right.

Cardboard Testimonies

Watching this was a powerful way to start my morning. I was not sure what to expect, but I'm glad I took the time to watch. Did it touch your heart like it did mine? Definitely worth it.

You say Party, We say....


Last week was filled with celebrating Naomi's birthday. On Thursday morning we had a party with her little friends. It was so cute to see them all together. We played together for a few hours and had hot dogs for lunch before it was time for everyone to go home and have a nap. This is the best picture we could get of all the kids together. I know that this picture will be a great memory to look back on when the kids get older. I love looking back at the pictures for myself at my friends parties when I was a baby. If you want to see one click here. (That's me in the infant seat)
On Saturday we had a family party. It was great having both sides of the family together, including many of my aunts, uncles, and cousins. Even all of Naomi's great-grandparents where there! We are so lucky to have so much family so close by that can watch Naomi grow up!

The evening included a dinner of burgers, salads, fruits, and veggies. Of course, no birthday party would be complete without Birthday Cake. Our friend Victoria makes wonderful cakes and offered to make one for Naomi's party. It turned out great!
The weekend was an awesome time to celebrate with our family and friends who love our little girl almost as much as we do :) Thanks to everyone who came. It was wonderful to party with you all.

Our Dearest Naomi,

We can still remember the day of your birth so clearly. Although it is hard to believe that you were ever this small.

You have had me and your Daddy wrapped around your finger from the first moment. Each day that you have been with us has been wonderful and a treasure. Your first year of life flew by as we adjusted to being parents for the first time. You have been training us well :) and we are so privileged to be your parents. We could not ask for a better daughter.
Your second year has been an adventure. You have grown up SO much in this last year. You amaze us everyday with your newest words and talents. We are so proud of you Naomi! Our hearts are filled to overflowing as we watch you learn and explore the world around you.

You are a loving and kind girl, with the perfect amount of independence and spunk. We know that you are going to turn out to be a fantastic adult one day. Yet, for now, please stay a little girl for a while longer, you are growing up to fast. We are enjoying this life with you every day.

Happy 2nd Birthday darling.
Mommy and Daddy

Tearduct Probe - Please pray

Hello All,
I am asking all my bloggy friend to join me in prayer as Naomi goes into Children's Hospital tomorrow. She has a clogged tear duct that needs to be fixed. Her right eye is often filled with tears that overflow down her cheek, and she is prone to eye infections because it can't drain properly. For most children the clog usually clears up on it's own by the time they are 18 months old. If not, like in Naomi's case, they need to have surgery to open it up.
So, tomorrow morning we are heading into Children's to have the surgery done. It is only a day surgery and we should be home by tomorrow afternoon. We have to arrive at the hospital one and a half hours early to meet with the anesthesiologist and do all the pre-op stuff. The doctor said that the procedure will take about 10 mins, with Naomi being under general anesthesia for around 20 mins. Then she will go into recovery for about another hour or so. Then we can go home.
Please pray with us that everything will go well, including guidance for the doctors hands, peace for us and for Naomi. We trust that God has this situation in His hands and that all will happen according to his will. We are choosing to trust the One who loves Naomi more than we do.
"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
