Family of 4 as of tomorrow!

So by 8am tomorrow my Dr. says we'll be holding our little girl! Today we had extra fun Noah time because tomorrow when he wakes up, we won't be here! My c-section is scheduled for 6am, and Grandma and Uncle and almost (engaged) Auntie are coming down to look after Noah while I'm in the hospital for 4 days. So when Noah wakes up he'll most likely have a sister! I'm actually quite nervous about the op. Last time it was an emergency c-section so I didn't have time to get freaked out about the fact that they are cutting me open, but this time I've had a long time to think about it. Clint's debating if he should watch the surgery. I can just picture a fainting husband in the OR! It's also so weird to me that its all planned out and the date isn't a surprise like last time. But anyways it means that our little girl will finally be here, so I guess it doesn't matter :-) We got a gift for Noah today from his sister, its a little car with a steering wheel that he can scoot around on. It's perfect cause whenever I go to a certain shopping center his favorite thing is to hop into the kiddy cart with the wheel on it. He drives around smiling and waving at everyone walking by.

The Lord is so good, and I can't wait to see how He'll take care of my little Noah without me for 4 days, and how He'll take care of my baby girl and me in recovery as well.

Hopefully there will be photos up soon for you all!
