So a few weeks ago, I met Abster and Luke at our favorite Chick-fil-a (hi, Lori!) because...
THEY HAD FOUND OUT THE BABY'S GENDER AND WERE GOING TO TELL ME!!!!!!!!
Sweet Abster texted and said, "Do you want to meet at Chick-fil-a and we will tell you what we are having?" Um, yes. I wouldn't miss it!
Yes, I might have been excited! It was another one of those moments when I was delighted to be living in the same place as them to be a part of these moments.
I was so excited and we got our food and sat down. I ran to use the bathroom real quick before we started chatting (why does this matter? You will see).
When I came back, Luke said, "So how is work going?" Abby said, "Stop it!" I was fine - I can work with it. I asked how the appointment went and all was well. Then Luke said, "It's a..."
And he lifts up my tray and there were the photos of the tiny baby!!!
(We might have re-enacted this for a photo)
Little one. So sweet! And it's a BOY!!!! So now the nickname is Baby LAD (still Luke and Abby, but lad represents a little man, so it works).
He looks like a little alien right now and is the cutest. I can't wait to meet his little self.
And during this process, I kept wrestling with the Lord on "please keep them here to be a part of this little one's life." More on that to come.
Gracious - I love them!!!
So Chick-fil-a. Just one example of where life conversations have happened. (Also side note: Luke and Abby and I waited at a Chick-fil-a for Charlie Belle's birth, so there you go).
(On our way to Chick-fil-a, then the hospital to await Char's entrance to the world)
