I can't believe that we are so close to meet our little Peanut. My doctor scheduled my induction of labor for Friday, February 5th at 7AM, which means in less than 48 hours we will be heading to the hospital to check in.

I am beyond excited, happy and joyful and at the same time I am frightened, scared and worried beyond words. I am well aware that this next journey in our lives as a family will bring many new challenges as we attempt to balance the joy of holding Peanut while so deeply longing & missing Lucas.

We've had another minor snow storm and I love how the white cover makes everything look so peaceful. The weather frogs are also calling for another storm to head our direction on Friday evening....I am honestly very excited that it will be snowing during the first hours that we will be holding Peanut. I've always loved snow and for me it portrays serenity and peace. Here is a picture from this morning - just magical.

I am well aware that we are heading towards another roller coaster of emotions and hope that we will find our way through this new journey as a family of four.

If you are the praying type, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.


  1. Oh my goodness, I've lost track of time! I can't believe your sweet peanut is almost here!!! I can't wait to see pictures and to hear the good news. You all are definitelly in my thoughts & prayers.

  2. I am so excited for you guys! Of course, I will be praying...

  3. Susi -- I am praying so hard for you guys. Lots of love, Olivia

  4. You are in my prayers, Susi. It must be such a wonderful feeling to know your Peanut will be in your arms soon!

  5. The four of you are in my prayers. I don't know if he is here yet!!! I dont want to call you but I am assuming he is very very close.
