Baby Update - 38 Weeks

Well, at 38 weeks last Friday I am officially counting down the days until I can count little baby fingers and toes! As of today (if everything goes as planned) I only have 4 more days until I can hold my new little guy in my arms and I can't wait!!!

At my appointment last Friday Ryder's heart rate was strong 120. He is still head down and I am making progress. So my doctor wants me to come in this Wednesday to see how things are progressing to determine if I will be induced on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. Knowing how close it is to meeting this new little guy I wanted to share yet another cute email about moms. This email/poem is tittled "A Newborn's Conversation with god."

A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."

God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."

Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"

God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

God said, "Your angel will place your hand together and will teach you how to pray."
"Who will protect me?"

God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to ME, even though I will always be next to you."
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

God said, You will simply call her, "Mom."
There is something about this little email poem that warms my heart every time I see it!
