we're ready 4 U, Eli!!!









here is eli's room, finally finished! YEA KEVIN! he did SUCH a great job! he did the walls, painted most of the furniture and made the frames for eli's name. sorry they're sideways-but you know me...here are a few pix of me as well. i know, i know-i said no more. but i just can't believe how big my belly is-i don't see how he fits! and he still has enuf room to move, cuz he's always movin! wow! unbelieveable! i'm 38 weeks now; dialated to a 1 and still just 50% effaced. the doc did strip some membranes yesterday-OH OUCH! and then when i got home, i had my first case of EXTREMELY PAINFUL sciatica! thank the Lord, it only lasted about 45 minutes then subsided. that was crazy painful. also, there's a pix of us and the newells on our last 'date' (for a loooong while). we both got sitters, went to a movie and then out to eat. the tahoe in the back is our 'new addition' to the gordon family. our blazer was just not reliable- but then again, for all you who've known us since italy-was it EVER reliable?! ha! praise God for His blessings! oh yeah, there's a pix of an open burger king crown...a friend of mine made that a few years ago when we first did IVF. she's kept it this long (it even made a move from AZ to TX with them!). it says PRAISE THE LORD I'M PREGNANT! i should have 'announced' our news to you while wearing it, way back in january-but soon after we found out-that's when my sick days began and i was in NO mood for picture-taking! :)

I am so impressed with Kevin doing all that work. Not that I don't think he couldn't do it, just that he did so much!!! Congrats on Eli's arrival!!!
