|Sentimental mama alert- same school I went to as a wee one|
Some people really hate that we are naming our girl with the middle name of "Paul". They are desperately trying to get us to feminize it. It's not gonna happen. I can't wait for her to tell people why her name is Paul, and who St. Paul (...not official Church teaching.. YET!) is/was. I'm also pretty pumped for her to marry Paul Blaze in a couple decades- it's all gonna be pretty perfect.
And, to wrap up this wrap up. Would you guys pray everything goes well next week? Add me to prayer lists, say some masses, whatever you can spare. With every surgery I get nervous, but this being #4- and having some scary moments with #3- I'm just nervous as can be. I have asked for your prayers before when it comes to these surgeries and they have always made a significant difference. I'm looking for prayers of a skilled surgical team, but also, prayers for calm. Having such major surgery, it's very possible to be so worried, I miss the coolness of bringing a kid into the air. It's particularly terrifying directly before, so prayers for those moments would be great. I know there is a lot to pray for in the world, and I do appreciate any you can spare.
I can't wait to introduce you to our baby girl, I can't wait to hold her in my arms. I can't wait for my spa (um, hospital) vacation...
Happy Thursday :)
