Nephew Countdown


It is looking increasingly likely that Rachel and Ben's baby will be born this week. Rachel's blood pressure has been high lately and the bed rest and medicine her doctor prescribed are not bringing it down enough. Obviously eclampsia is not something to mess around with, it might be time to get that boy out.

Selfishly, I can't wait for that boy to be born. I am so bummed that I am not in Iowa to see his little face right away. {However I am sure my mom will be sending photos as soon as she can!}
