We'll just have to wait.

Jessica and I woke up at 4:30am this morning to get ready to go to the hospital. The nurse asked us to call first, so we did and they told us that the rooms were all full and that they would have to get ahold of our doctor and let us know when we could come in. So, we waited till 10:45am and called the hospital again. They told us that we will have to wait until Wednesday to have the induction. Anyways, we're not too happy about that...but I'm sure its all in God's timing. Just wanted to give an update. We'll let you know if we go before then :-)Otherwise, we'll have to wait until there's room at the inn.

Here's the latest...we are going in to be induced tomorrow (Friday the 29th!). We are super excited and will hopefully have a picture of Eli soon. Thank you guys for all of your prayers and we ask that you continue to be in prayer for us. I'm at an increased risk of C-section due to some complications and I really want to avoid this route if at all possible. Thanks for all of your support!

Baby Update

The latest in baby news is that we have a tentative induction date scheduled for August 29th. This was set by a different doctor than my regular doctor b/c she was out of town. I see her this Thursday and will know more then! But, there you have it, it looks like if we have not had the baby by next Fri. he will probably be born then. I'm doing well, the baby is getting bigger, and sometimes you can see how he is laying and how he is positioned. It's so weird!

We have drywall!

The drywallers came today and they did their thing. It's amazing that in one day the whole carport can turn into something that looks like real rooms! Here are a few pics...

The Master Bedroom.

The Nursery

The Laundry Room

The Master Bath

And finally, a pic of our new front door.

Byron is moving pretty fast. We expect to be done in about 6 weeks or so. We get our new bedroom furniture tomorrow. We'll probably wait till they're done with drywalling first though :-).

Byron has started working on the laundry room and our master bath. Here are some pics...

This is our laundry room plumbing.

This is our jacuzzi tub.

This is our shower.

He's got a lot to do...but he's working hard. We hope to have the addition finished before the baby comes. He's working overtime to see that this happens. More pics to come later!

No Pictures For You!

Well this week has been a lot busier then our blog suggests. We just can't show you any pictures of the progress. Byron has spent most of the week under the house putting in new pipe to replace the old cast iron and then installing the new plumbing for the addition. We also had new duct work installed in the attic for the HVAC and will get our new heating air unit Monday! Next week begins with a very important inspection, then electric, and hopefully we'll be dry-walled by the end of the week! We'll definitely have pics by then...but until then please picture in your mind what our plumbing looks like...on second thought...that's just gross.

Jessica and I had a garage sale today. We made $93 dollars. Poor Becky only made $4 and paid $6 for her lunch! Then we had two car loads and a truck load of stuff to haul off to the goodwill. Thanks Frances and Becky for the help!

Well, we have a birthday party to get blog at you later...
