chubby cheeks

Yesterday Amber had her 38 week doctor appointment and the doctor says all looks well. They estimate that Baby J is already 8 lbs and so the doctor would like to induce if Baby J does not make his entrance into this wild world by next weekend! OH MY GOODNESS…it’s beginning to feel real!

Amber sent me these two photos…


This is the ultrasound from yesterday, 4/22/10. I’d say by the grumpy look on his face, he is ready to get out of there! Look at those chubby cheeks…

Jesse and parents, Scott & Beth

just like his Daddy’s when he was a baby. Looks like they both got them from his beautiful Mimi Beth.

It’s getting close! It goes without saying that we covet your prayers for a safe and easy labor & delivery for  Amber,  understanding and patience for Jesse, and a strong and healthy Baby J. We are trusting God with our desire to be their for the birth. God’s timing is perfect. He has already worked out dog-care for Max and a place for us to stay while there. God is good and loves us just because He chose to.

  1. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made . . . All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:13,14a,16b. What a joy to see the face already, of this precious little boy Jacobs. We will certainly be praying for a safe and easy labor and delivery and for Jesse and Amber. May God surround you with his presence and love. We love you. Opa and Oma.
