Baby Max

Julie and Travis are expecting Baby #2 - Natalie's little brother. Originally the doctor gave them a due date of October 31. After the weekly visit yesterday, he feels they should induce Julie's labor and get this little fellow born. Oh no! There are still so many things that need to be done; most importantly, a name needs to be decided on.

At the start of this pregnancy, Julie wanted to name him Max, and we all loved the name (except Travis). After all, Natalie's imaginary friend is named Max. But as time went on, Julie agreed this wasn't going to be the name; however, they can't agree on what it will be. Last night at their home, there was to be a lot of talking and deciding as well as finishing the baby room, putting things away, and getting the house cleaned and ready for what's coming up. Needless to say, we are all excited; I'm a bit nervous. I've been down that road of induced labor; I hope that in the 26 years since I've been there, they've made it easier on the mom.

Would you please hold my family in prayer during this week. It is such a wonderful time, and we are all looking forward to meeting this new person - whatever his name is. Thanks.

Oh I wish Julie were having the baby on October 31st. He would share the same birthday as me!
