Baby is coming soon! February 18th is her due date.
A few months back, I had asked for special prayers for my daughter Kelli who had just learned that she was pregnant. She had had two miscarriages over the past couple of years and I had felt a little uncomfortable announcing her pregnancy. These pictures are proof that she is doing just fine and that we are awaiting the arrival of a baby.........no, we don't know whether it's a boy or a girl! Her hubby requested that they not find out the sex of the baby as there are so few surprises in life. She went along with it......reluctantly......and he had the nerve to say that she and I were conspiring to find out what the sex of the baby was!!!!! Well to be quite honest, we discussed how we could find out and not tell anyone. We just laughed at that.....and knew that we would never be able to know and not tell. So, we all are excited and can't wait for this little person to arrive and be so lovingly welcomed into our family. It will be such a joyful day.
Also, Kelli isn't hooked up to the internet at the present time. Occasionally she goes to her hubby's office and checks out some of her friends blogs. But she hasn't posted in maybe five months. I just wanted you to all know that she is just fine, looking so beautiful with her basketball sized tummy. She just looks like she swallowed a basketball. She's still as lovely as ever.
They are preparing for the newest addition; Aaron has painted the nursery, the crib is all together and set up and the dressing table is ready to go. Gianna has a few names that she has picked out....mostly girl names as she says she would like to have a sista! Hailee on the other hand is hoping for a baby brother and keeps making suggestions for boy names to mom and dad. Daddy insists that "Luciano" has to be part of a boys name. And I believe that they have decided on a girls name......Phoebe. Isn't that a lovely name? So, as you can see, lot's of conversations about names are being heard.
Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers over the past months. It has meant so much to all of us. Please continue to pray for Kelli that she will have an easy delivery and healthy baby. Kelli's time is drawing near and you know how uncomfortable those last few weeks can be.
One last thing.....I promise to post a picture of baby P. as quickly as I can get from the hospital to the laptop.
