The home stretch

Well, we are close now. At 11:30am tomorrow we will head to the hospital for Mrs. Z's 12:30pm appointment to have baby boy Z delivered to the world. We're busy finishing off all those last minute details: getting the house organized and cleaned, getting the plans for the bris in order, making sure the nurse is lined up, and generally making sure we have all those I's dotted and T's crossed before we reach that appointed time.

Personally, I can't wait. As someone who never liked being around kids much, the transformation after having your own child is incredible. I love my daughter; love playing with her, teaching her, hugging and kissing her, reading her stories at night, the whole thing.

The most important concern I have, of course, is for a healthy and safe delivery for the Momma and Baby, so I'll be sure to keep you posted. It's an exciting time thinking that, God willing, we'll be one bouncing baby addition bigger by tomorrow afternoon.

Finally, thank you to those who have kept us in your thoughts and prayers at this unbelievable time in our life. Of course I'll be praying to God often in the next 24 hours to bless us with a good and healthy day tomorrow, and can't wait for the next stage of MZ's family life to begin!
