Do you remember as a child, going to bed on Christmas morning with a warning to not get out of bed until at least the sun comes up?? ( I do.) I still get that warning. The anticipation of Christmas morning was is so substantial every year - I often wonder if taking a benadryl would help me fall asleep and keep me asleep past 6:00 a.m.....

...Let's fast forward to today. As we were falling asleep last night, Cullen said, "we find out what our baby is tomorrow." Fact. I didn't sleep well last night. Fact.

I found myself wondering HOW AM I GOING TO GET THROUGH TODAY??!?!?! Could I just take a Benadryl and just wake up in time for my appointment? Nope. I have school today.

Dear God: PLEASE MAKE 3 P.M. COME QUICKLY TODAY! Lord, let us see a healthy baby on that monitor this afternoon. I know I have asked you many-a-times for a specific sex, but I can not wait to learn what our baby is and will be so excited either way. Bows and lace or little sports and tractors! I already feel so blessed to be his/her mommy. I trust you know what is best and it is in Your hands always. Amen.


  1. I thought about you earlier this morning. I even checked to see if you'd posted about the sleepless night I was sure you'd had.

    Excited for you, friend!


  2. I'm so excited for you and can't wait to find out what baby is! :) I will say a prayer for your day to go by fast, too... I booked that gender appt first thing in the morning bc I didn't want to wait.

  3. So...what is it?! Follow up, please!
