Baby Journey: Waiting Game

I’m sitting here eating popcorn and drinking hot chocolate watching one of my favorite movies: August Rush.

  • Our labor bags are packed. And our birth plan rehearsed. Fresh batteries are in the camera along with plenty extra just in case. The video camera is fully charged and the tripod is packed. We even have ‘labor music’.
  • Dominic’s diaper bag is packed. His sweet little going home outfit is picked out.
so tiny
  • I am happy with the way the nursery/guest room looks.
  • The co sleeper is set up beside the bed. I’ve already had one night’s sleep to practice getting in and out of bed with it there.
just needs a baby
  • My mom, who has a reputation for encouraging the arrival of her grandchildren, arrives tomorrow.

So now…we wait. As I sit here, Dominic is moving around. I think he just might be as excited as us. {Or perhaps he is just enjoying the beautiful music from the movie}

Either way, there is this incredible anticipation at the arrival of our son: Dominic Truth Parker

Estimated arrival January 6th, 2011.

When will our sweet baby boy arrive on the scene? Sometime soon but exactly when is left up to the amazing miracle of God’s timeline.

And so…we wait.

Mommy and Daddy cannot wait to meet you sweet Dom!

  1. Word cannot express my excitement and happiness for you guys! I am SO gonna be bawling like a baby when he’s born!! I can’t wait!

  2. I too am anticipating the arrival of Dominic. Hope Dominic is wanting to make his arrival after I get there. Joel decided to make his appearance as soon as i was here so maybe Dominic will follow his cousin’s example and greet Granny quickly.
