We avoided having our baby born on the same day as Saddam's death....thank goodness.
Still no baby. We're hanging out at the Ronald McDonald house. Watched Oregon State pull out the miracle Sun Bowl victory yesterday. Some friends of ours came over to stay with us from Salem, OR. We seem to be doing all right in the midst of everything. Pretty soon however we're going to have to figure out how to move all our stuff out of our house in Bozeman. Our closing date is Jan 15th. That could get a little stressful. We've got amazing friends who I think will pack up our house for us if need be...so thats good.
We're bummed we're missing our winter conference in Portland. We keep getting updates and it sounds like it's going really well, but it's weird not being there. This will be only the second time we've missed a winter conference since I was a sophomore in college! There's nothing like praising in the new year with 800 college students. It'll be a bit more quiet this year.
Jody's doing well. She continues to have contractions. She'll go through spurts of a couple of hours of having contractions every 10-15 minutes. She's definitely getting tired of dealing with the physical discomfort. She is amazing. She doesn't complain at all and doesn't even look like she's in pain. Apparently she has an amazing pain tolerance. All it'll take is her dialating a little more and they will let our little girl be born. Could be anytime! We'll keep you posted.
