Pregnancy Photos

Linwood and I had some pregnancy pics taken last week. If you're interested in viewing them go to www.thesmilestation.com. Our Customer Name is: Sara Washington and our Access Code is : LTTT0853104425TAR.

I have been trying to convince India that the first day of Spring is a wonderful day to have a birthday. We'll see if she listens. I got to start my maternity leave early as my school caught on fire Saturday night and school is closed all week:) Hope it's not too sick to be happy about that:)

Love you,

The end is near...

Hello All,
Well, it's less than 10 days before our baby's expected arrival date. I have never been more nervous and excited in all my days. Sara says she feels different, as if her body is preparing for labor.

The entire pregnancy has been a wonderful experience. The doctor showed me how to feel exactly where India's body parts are. Also, in a quiet room I can put my ear to Sara's belly and hear India's heartbeat. Her belly has begun to drop in preparation for labor. She says the baby is coming in the next few days, however, I think and hope India will arrive around the end of March.

From the rear you would never know that my beautiful wife is having a baby. But when she turns around it looks like she swallowed an oversized basketball. I'm looking forward to sharing my first March Madness with our new baby. I'm sure she wouldn't want to miss the games.

At our last doctor's visit they informed us that Sara had dilated 4 cm. That makes it better for us when active labor actually begins. It's obvious we're getting close. Sara stated on Saturday 03-10-07 that she wants the baby out of her today. Another sign is that she loses things much too often (guess who gets the blame). She wants to change the baby's middle name. Lastly, her favorite meal has been fishsticks for the past few weeks. This works out well for me since I lost a bet and have to cook dinner all this week.

However and whenever India arrives I think we are prepared and we will keep you posted. Continue to pray for the 3 of us.

We love you and God bless you,

Any day now

We are anxiously awaiting "India's" arrival! At our doctor's appointment yesterday the doctor said that she could come any day now. Of course he also said that she could come in a few weeks, but I prefer the any day prediction. I am 4 cm dialated and 60% effaced. We are very excited and hope to have pictures and news of her coming soon.
Love you,
Linwood and Sara
