Finish Line In Sight

We can see the finish line and like many, what was originally thought to be a sprint turned into a race of plodding endurance...
We started out feeling like the hare and we evolved into the turtle. Maintaining faith, strength and patience to finish became our test.

Seeing Alyzabeth's picture for the first time, hopefully this coming Tuesday or Wednesday, will work wonders in reducing the aches and pains endured. All to prepare us for what will be our true finish line.
When Aly holds Alyzabeth An in her arms on Forever Day and for forever more...

come on stork, you can do it, flap those wings fast so you can bring Alyzabeth's info, her Mommy and Daddy are so ready and so deserve it!!

P.S. I work on Tuesday, but if we can do a dinner Tuesday night I'd love to meet you guys (besides I wasn't invited Tuesday, hehe)...

Hopefully Tuesday works out and if not...totally understandable!

Prepare to cry when you see the photo for the first time -- the big ugly cry because your heart is so full to bursting. I'm so excited for y'all. So excited!

I remember the torturous waiting like it was yesterday . . . do whatever u need to do to keep your mind occupied for the next few days. This process is certainly not for the weak. You're so close.

So, so exciting!

Can't wait for this race to be over for you this week. Finally....

Perrin said...

Oh I remember those last final days before seeing the most beautiful little faces ever! Torture, hope filled torture but still nail biting until the end. Wishing you a great final weekend - pre-babe. Enjoy the ride!

Never have I wanted a weekend to go by so quickly!!! I am holding out for a phone call on Tuesday (I think that may have been your guys' second guess). We are headed to the beach for a week vacation so we'll be expecting the call away from home.

In waiting with you!
Ruth
