Spotlight: John

Just another little momma update: still pregnant (lol). Lots of Braxton-Hicks-ing (normal for me). Tomorrow is our big day! We've about got all the preparations done for little man's arrival. Just a few more odds-and-ends to wrap up today. After supper and bath-time tonight, we'll be taking the children to spend the night with Jeremy's mom since we have to be at the hospital at 5am...which means we need to leave at 4am...which means we'll need to get up no later than 3:30am. I had mentioned in a previous post about my arms randomly falling asleep. Well, I ended up asking my OB about it, and the craziest thing she said it was ... it's carpal tunnel syndrome. Apparently it can arise in pregnancy, even if you've never had it before. I really hope it goes away after all this incredibly high amount of swelling goes away.


Wow, where do I start with this one? Such a "first-born." He's such a rock. He's always ready and able to help anywhere and everywhere. He loves responsibility and is very proud of his duty at church: bring a water bottle from the refrigerator in the fellowship hall to whomever is preaching that evening.

Whether it's arithmetic and science or power tools and yard work, John loves to learn new things. He wants to be challenged; He wants to do things "too old" for him. Usually he does them, and does them well. Whatever you're doing, he is begging to be a part of it.

John's desire is to please the Lord and please those around him. He's vexed when he's hurt the feelings of others. He wants to do right, but is sometimes impulsive in deciding the "right" way to handle a situation. John looks out for his siblings so protectively.

John is very much an outdoorsman. From time to time he will lament over the possibility that the Lord could call us to the mission field and then we could possibly have to live in the city. (no really, he has said that more than once).
