middle of the night

Tonight has been another first.

First of all I'm still trying to get rested from our Cambodia trip - we got back Thursday night.  Just as I prepared to settle down for a great sleep - I got THE call...

Baby Biddle is on the way!

It's now 3:39 a.m. and I'm sitting in the waiting room - the birthing is progressing but is probably still a few hours away.  I've never been more excited!  We face timed with Aaron and Jocelyn, trying to include them as much as possible from thousand of miles away!

Since Eric has moved back to Mansfield, it's the most I've been around him as an adult man.  He is SO much like his father it's unbelievable!  In the birth suite I thought I was back 25 years in time as he searched through the cabinets, curious about everything, and kept us all laughing - relieving the stress of waiting.

The baby is coming....First of all - I can't wait for the first look at him!

What will he be like?  Who will he look like?  What will he sound like?  What will his favorite story be - his favorite color - his favorite toy?  When will he fall in love with Jesus?

A new life to pray for, to care for, to love.

It's the middle of the night and I've never been happier, or more thankful to my Savior!
