My plan...

Have you ever heard the quote, "God laughs when you make plans" ???
I love that quote!  I am such a planner, so this just puts me right in my place!  If you were to have asked me 10 years ago where I would be, what I would be doing, etc. I would never in a million years have thought I would be here in Alabama about to give birth to my first child!  At 18, I thought I would have already had a child... I think I planned that around 25 I would start having kids.  I would have never dreamed I would have lived on an island!  I would have laughed out loud if I were told I would pack up (husband and dog in tow) and just move to a small town in Alabama with no jobs, friends, or family. 

So... now that I am planning on Colin making his appearance soon (like now?!), I am sure I can hear God laughing!  I feel so blessed that God has allowed Garet and I to be parents, and I really hate to complain, so I won't... I'll just say that I am getting a wee bit uncomfortable.  Just a wee bit... 

I went to the doctor this morning and there really isn't much change.  She wants to induce me because she thinks our little man is going to get too big.  I really didn't want to induce... so this was a little discouraging.  Definitely not "my plan"  =) 
I know God has a wonderful plan to bring Colin into this world.  I am trying not to stress about it.

Aww Kelly! My guess is that as soon as you "plan" to go and be induced, Colin will decide to come the night before!

Regardless, you are going to be a great mommy very, very soon!

Unfortunately babies aren't aware of the "plan" and usually do what they want to! lol
Good luck!

No matter what the 'plan' ends up being, you'll look back and know God was in control and knew exactly what you needed all along! I pray that He will offer you peace in the mean time. All too soon you'll be breathing in Colin's sweet smell, holding his tiny hand, and hearing his precious cry!
