Busy Weekend

Friday afternoon we celebrated PJM's birthday by going to Fernwood Botanical Gardens and Arboretum. It was gorgeous with spring flowers! 

 Saturday morning we moved furniture to set up Baby O's room. (here is a little preview)

Saturday, afternoon we went to the Lake to visit with Dad, Uncle Dick and Y before heading to Mass at our Parish.
Sunday was rainy, but a good day to set up the baby swing, baby seat, wash the covers, and to unpack strollers and car seat.   We finished cleaning out Baby O's closet.  Today, LSM started doing laundry and moving Sweet Baby O's things into her closet and dresser.

As we move closer to the due date we have a very specific prayer intention that we ask you to include in your prayers: 

 "For Baby O to be born healthy enough to be released from the hospital in a few days."

We will not be granted custody of her until she is released from the hospital, so we will not be able to start taking on our parenting responsibilities until she is released.  This is all a legal thing and not specific to this case.  I don't know if it varies from state to state, but it is the law in our state.

All is going well.  It is hard to be a birthmom though.  The papers said that it is much like the death of a child for a birthmom and that there is a period of grieving for her after she has placed the baby for adoption. C need and deserves our prayers.  It will all be fine. But it is hard for her and any birthmom.

I surely will be praying that Baby O is born screaming and healthy and ready to go home with you a few days later! Her room looks great with her beautiful furniture. I remember doing Marcos' laundry before he was born. That really made it seem more real to me. I remember pouring over these impossibly tiny little clothes, especially the little outfit I had for him at the hospital. They sure don't stay that tiny for long!
