A light at the end of the "LONG" tunnel....

No pun intended... Ha Ha Ha

Unless Peanut decides she is ready to venture into this world on her own before the weekend, we will be going to the hospital on Sunday morning for an induction. I really did not want to be induced, but I can't go on with this horrible pain much longer. Every step I take is very painful and limits everything I do. I am excited that we at least have a "light at the end of our LONG tunnel." The doctor told me it could take 2 days -- "so don't bank on a baby on Sunday!!" So, needless to say we are expecting the longest, hoping for the best!!!

Our prayers is that Peanut would prefer to just come on out before Sunday, but I think she likes her 98.7 degree home and isn't thrilled about the FREEZING Indiana weather. Maybe if it was August, she would feel differently and not know the difference!! She is probably thinking, "I can't handle 50 degree temperature swings in 1 day!!"

Since Peanut decided she didn't want to come before Christmas, she isn't going to get out of wearing her "Baby's first Christmas and Reindeer outfits." If you come over and see her in those, don't think I am crazy and have lost track of time with the lack of sleep ... just know I am trying to get good use out of them!!! Gotta put them to good use b/c she won't be fitting into them next year for her actual "first Christmas."

We also want give a shout out to the White Family -- Michelle and Justin welcomed Lila Jane White into the world yesterday, 12/23 at 11:19 am. She was 7 pounds 4 oz. and 21 inches long. Mom and Baby are doing well!! Lila Jane will have a new playmate soon!! When they get older, then can complain to each other about their birthday's being right around Christmas!!! At least they can find comfort in knowing they aren't alone!! :)

We wish you all a Merry Christmas!!!
Allyson and Peanut

Hope you had a great Christmas! Regardless of whether the baby decided to make an appearance, it will be one to remember!
