Reese's Name Gallery #20

I have fun news to share along with Reese's 20th Name Gallery. I am going to have an amnio done July 7th (I'll be 37 weeks) to see if Colson's lungs are developed. If they are then I will have a c section July 8th. If his lungs are not developed, my c section will be the next week. This means he may be here THREE weeks from today! Can you believe it!?

The reason we are having my c section early is for our peace of mind, and my doctor wholeheartedly agrees we need some peace. I can't believe Colson is this close to actually being in our arms. I love feeling him move all around inside me and can't wait to hold him. So much more to do until he arrives! ; )


Thank you so much for the pictures you send. I love each one and without them Reese's gallery wouldn't be possible. ; )

Light writing ~ a talented photographer friend took this. ; )

These pictures were taken by a lake close to our house. We have never even met the woman who took them!

Pretty pink spring flowers

Nicest road sign I've ever seen. ; )

Beautiful name in chalk

Just because I'm thinking about my sweet pea. I love honoring her.


But You, GOD my Lord, deal kindly with me because of Your name; deliver me because of the goodness of Your faithful love.

Psalm 109:21

That is fantastic news! My birthday is July 8th and I've always been partial to it. What an honor it would be to share it with your daughter!

Angie said...

What wonderful news girl!! I will be earnestly praying for you and Colson, and that his lungs are developed so you can meet your sweet baby boy.

I love the Reese gallery (#20! that is just great)and all of her pictures - they are such a tribute to her and I know she is just thrilled to be looking out for her baby brother that will be in your arms soon!

Love you girl - always praying!!

My birthday is also July 8th and a great time of the year for a child's birthday 'cause you can have cake, homemade ice cream and watermelon!!! ( or at least that's what I always had as a little kid) !!

Praying for you and Colson....safe delivery and healthy baby!
Blessings!

Heather said...

Three weeks?!?!?!? That is so hard to believe! I still remember reading your post saying you were pregnant with Colson!!! Praying blessings for you, Katie-girl!

Sara said...

Love all the pictures!

Wow - three weeks. It will be here so fast. I am so happy for you and your family. I will be praying for good results on your test so you can meet Colson sooner.

Wendy said...

That's great news! What an amazing and understanding doctor you have!!! I would want to do the EXACT same thing!! Can't wait to see pictures of the new sweetie...hope it's on 7/8/10!!!!

Paige said...

So exciting!! I totally understand the need for peace of mind...at some point that outweighs the cost of taking them a little early! We did the same thing with callyn- we lost tatum at 36...my doctor and i decided early on that we wouldn't go a day past 37. We opted not to do the amnio- we knew regardless of the results we just wanted her here (on the outside) and safe. Wouldn't change a thing...the countdown is on! Still praying!

Paige said...

That is such exciting news. I can't wait to hear how the amnio goes? I will be very interested in the details. Oh, Katie... Three weeks and it's time! Whoa, I just still can't believe the wonderful news. That's so great. Colson already has such a bundle of people praying for him. That has to be so comforting. Xoxo.

Meg said...

She is beautiful. I love all the name pictures you post up, you must have the most incredible collection of them!

I'm thinking about your amnio, fingers crossed for matured lungs.

Lindsay said...

Beautiful!!! And what great news! Wow, how did it happen so quickly? Oh, I can't wait to see his sweet face!! And I also can't wait...just a few more weeks and I can FINALLY make Reese's name for her gallery! Don't you know I have been waiting for this summer to come so I could complete it!! :) Have a happy weekend dear!!

What a blessing to know you will be holding Colson sooner than later!

The light painting of Reece's name is gorgeous. Her name is gorgeous. SHE is gorgeous!

I am so excited for you. Have you had an amnio before? I sure hope his lungs are mature. When I had the amnio done at 34.5 weeks Avins lungs where mature and we where able to start the induction that night. We where all surprised that they where mature but so thankful!

Your family is for sure in our thoughts . . PS . . if I ever have a boy . . can I name him Colson . . I am loving loving loving the name!

Thanks for the comment and to answer your question, he knows me well and I do get chocolate for many occasions!

Three weeks! How exciting! =)

Katie
A week or so ago while at Michael's I was drawn to a paper pack called "Reese". If I would have had a camera I would have taken a picture to share. I almost bought the paper pack to send to you.

Hello, I found your blog via Bless Our Nest. You have a beautiful family! I am happy for you and I will continue to pray God's blessings and peace over your delivery in the next couple of weeks.

Jess said...

How exciting that you will be meeting Colson so soon!!! I can hardly believe we will be meeting our little guy on Monday if not sooner!!! This pregnancy has seemed like such a journey it's hard to imagine it is finally going to come to completion!! I'm sure you are feeling similarly.
Love the pictures for Reese's gallery!

hi-d said...

So excited for you, Katie! I will definitely keep you in my prayers in the coming days. I can't wait to see that cute baby of yours. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I'm glad that it reminded you of Reese's garden. God Bless you, sweet lady!

Lauren Kelly said...

Never get tired of seeing that sweet girls name!! :) and can't wait to see that sweet boy of yours soon!!! :)

Heather said...

These are beautiful! I love the ones next to the lake. Reese was a beautiful little girl and she has a beautiful mommy. Your strength inspires me Katie, praying for you upon the arrival of sweet Colson!! our neighbors back in TN, their little boy's name is Colson and he is pretty darn cute!! Such a beautiful tribute to Reese!

busymom said...

Gosh, I bet you are excited!! I had my son by c-section at 37 weeks, and didn't even have an amnio! Colson will be fine. Be ready on July 8th, I bet that will be the day!
Oh, and I had a boy at 35 weeks, no amnio either, and he was fine.
I'll be praying for you either way-that he be healthy and make it safely into your arms. Hugs, Holly

Leanne said...

Beautiful.

I'm always praying for you as well....

Reese, and Colson, And Z too, are all so blessed to have you for a Mama.

I'll be praying for Colson and you.

Be blessed. Be at peace. Amen.

The Vosslers said...

So close! It'll be such a blessing for you to meet him on the outside.

Z and his Hog ... that is something else!

And Reese ... what a beautiful baby. Her little lips and nose and soft little self ... you want to scoop her up and hold her.
