Harper.. Official Due Date Tomorrow

So tomorrow is Harper's due date (Septemeber 9th). I can hardly believe how fast the time has gone. We are eagerly awaiting our precious little girl. I have been to the doctor the last 3 weeks and everything appears to be healthy. I have not yet dropped, effaced or dilated so it looks like she may come a little late. I think she really loves being in my tummy and especially enjoys putting her little feet in my ribcage, Ouch.   I am feeling well and have been trying to stay active by walking, resting, cleaning (nesting), hanging out with our friends and spending time helping my mom with designing their house. 

Adam and I have been spending some time picking out some verses to pray for Harper. Some we have been praying throughout our pregnancy. I thought I would include them for those of you who want to pray along.....

Galatians 5:23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. 

* We are praying all those characteristics for her

Duet 4:9
Only be careful and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them. 

* We are praying that she would love the Lord and have a strong sense of conviction

Psalm 9:1
I will praise you, O' Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name.

* Praying that she would be joyful 

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me-put into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Thanks everyone for thinking and praying along side of us.
