For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for good and not evil, to give you a future and a hope."

First off... I'm fine, the baby is fine, and Landry is fine! My intentions were to post yesterday and celebrate the fact that in one week we would be welcoming "Lil Bit". Obviously that did not happen as other things got in the way. We woke up and I needed to run to Walmart to pick up a few things I wanted to have for the hospital, and for Landry. I decided to make a "Big Bro Bag" for him so he would have something too. Mind you the Walmart is maybe three blocks from our house... no harm, no foul. Unfortunately on our way home the van behind me decided to punch the gas and slammed into the rear of my car and send me into the man in front of me. It happened soooo fast, I didn't have time to react! My glasses flew off my head, Walmart bags were all over, and I was left in shock. Landry was fine. As a matter of fact he was out of his belt and up beside me before I really had time to react. He was checking on me, and worried about the baby. I wasn't sure what to do. I was upset, and I had to mentally go through who I could call to come be my "support". I was able to immediately get a hold of my friend Amy who lives a street over from us. She and her husband showed up at the accident, and took care of me. I was a mess. Amy dealt with the two guys, the firemen, paramedics, and police, all while they were attending to me. Landry just wanted to leave and go with Amy and Ben. He saw no need to sit on the side of the road anymore!

Needless to say I was checked out by the paramedics and sent on my way to the hospital. Landry went with Ben to Centennial High School Basketball Camp where he had a blast. After about a 1 1/2 hours at the hospital we were sent on our way with a thumbs up! Amy stayed with me the whole time, and when I got home KB was cleaning, and making dinner for the night! I am again reminded of what great friends the Lord has blessed me with. Brett decided to come home early too! He showed up with Lute in tow at about 6:30. It has been nice to have him home... I know Landry was pumped. He hasn't left Brett alone since he walked through the door. I think I have given my mom a few more gray hairs with this pregnancy. Especially since it was my second surprise visit to Labor and Delivery for monitoring. As a matter of fact she was ready for them to go ahead and just bring Lil' Bit now!

As for today... I'm achy, but nothing like I thought I would be. All is well, and I see my doctor tomorrow for my last and final check before delivery. There is much to do before our bundle comes! Please keep praying for our home to sale. I know God's timing is perfect... I just want His timing to be mine. I of course know that is unrealistic, but it would be our last check off on our list of "Things to Take Care of"!

Oh how scary for you! I can't imagine what all was going through your head after the wreck. It has to be nice having Brett get home. When I was due with Audrey and Kevin was in TX for work I was so glad when he got home. I finally felt I could have that baby! Take care and try not to get into anymore accidents!

Oh my my! What a sweet boy that Landry is to be checking on his Momma! Would you send me your mailing address when you get a chance? My email address is Thanks!

Take care, all you Phippers!

Gracious, Kristy. I'm glad you are okay. Once again, I think I'm with your Mother. Could you just bring this baby into the world and hopefully we could all quit worrying? Nah, then we'll worry about every thing that could happen to the baby. Give Landry a kiss and a hug. Wish I could be there.
