Baby Boy Fletcher Arriving Monday!!!

We found out today that our baby boy will be arriving on Monday morning October 5th at around 7:30am. Because of the position of the baby (breech with his feet right on top of the cervix), our doctor felt that delivering him early out-weighed the risk of having him 3 weeks early.

So.... looks like we will have this precious boy a week from today. Though I've been really uncomfortable and was talking about wanting him to come early, I got REALLY nervous in the doctor's office. I started sweating really bad and needed some alone time to process all of this. Lee was really excited (of course I told him "yeah I'm sure you are, you aren't the one getting cut open!")

Please keep us in your prayers as we prepare for the baby this week, start getting serious about packing and our garage sale. Also please pray for lots of peace for Monday morning and for my fears and emotions on that morning. I have mixed emotions and just pray God gives me a peaceful and joyful heart . This also means our time here is nearing an end and I know that will also be an emotional roller coaster. Anyway, enough of all this, WE ARE HAVING A BABY MONDAY!!!

We told the kids and they are very excited. Lee asked them at bedtime what name they would pick if the baby was here today and here are their answers on video.

Definitely praying! For a smooth process, peace, health, rest...everything just perfect. I remember being at that point of being ready to be done with being pregnant, but still a little blinded by the reality of actually, finally having that baby.

Oh my goodness! I've been checking your blog often to see the updates and now to know this baby that has been prayed for so much is about to be born....wow. I so wish I could be there to cheer you on in person. I will be praying for you intensely the next few days and especially on Monday. I can only imagine the thoughts and emotions you must have. But I pray that over all of them you will close your eyes each night and be filled with peace. And that each of these next few days you will be able to have a calm spirit and know that you and sweet Baby Mateo Myles Liam Fletcher are covered in prayer from multiple continents. Love you and I am so proud of you. Now go drink a Sonic drink for me! :) And for the record, I love the middle name Jax, I saw that on your post and never got my vote in... :) Love it!

Lee and Steph,

I will most definitely intensify my intercessions of baby boy the next few days!! I'm not sure I'm ready to say goodbye to you yet! That precious baby boy has quite a legacy awaiting him and I can't wait to see what all he does in his lifetime! Indeed, he, Maddox, Sofia, and Immanuel are blessed to be shaped and loved by the two of you! Love you!!
