"For thus says the Lord: Lo, I will spread prosperity over her like a river, and the wealth of the nations like an overflowing torrent. As nurslings, you shall be carried in her arms, and fondled in her lap; As a mother comforts her son, so will I comfort you..." Isaiah 66:12-13

Getting ready.

Yikes, those newborn diapers are small!

If I get motivated I'll take/load some pictures of our other preparations... the co-sleeper's set, and the van has been purchased. I've unpacked toys and tiny baby clothes, blankets and towels.

We also got a new camera, as our old one was dying and then was misplaced by one tired pregnant lady and a small unwary accomplice. (Amelia probably took it and played with it while I was catching an afternoon nap on the couch... I remember her bringing it to me... but I don't remember anything after that. I keep waiting for it to turn up in a toy bin somewhere.)

Now, I just have to make sure that Jim knows how to use the camera, so we'll have good shots of baby's 3 first moments out in the world. :)

Because I said I would...

...here are pictures from Becky and Kerry's wedding and rehearsal. This is like time travel, because blogger hates me and completely reversed the order I loaded them in. They are mostly in order... just backwards order. Grrrrrrrr....

Tired Flower Girls.

Maria and Daddy.
The Happy couple.
Amelia and Daddy.
Mmmm... cake!
No comment.
Chicken dancing.
Ah, sitting down and eating without having to cut anyone else's food. :) I should be a bridesmaid more often.
The wedding party.
My hair. 56 bobby pins, 2 rubber bands and a lot of hair spray. I didn't win... Becky had a lot more.
Kerry's family.
Our family... note how serious the girls look.
The kiss.

Not sure why everyone but Kerry looks grumpy here.

Lighting the candles.
Who's that massively pregnant lady standing up front? I can't see anything!
Hurry up Maria! I think they have candy up there!
