happy due date yesterday...
Dear Brittani,
I hope you have had an enjoyable pregnancy, because sooner than you think it will be over. I remember how long you wanted this baby, then I remember our joy when you told us all you were pregnant, and then the big gender reveal.... how you asked me how you should tell people ... and you waited TWO days after knowing it was a little boy to tell the rest of us! But how exciting it was!!! and how the girls were confused when you brought them each a balloon to show us, they thought there were two boys but really you just didn't want them to fight. and how well you take care of you and your baby, he is loving being spoiled by his mommy and just needs some time. Baby Mac is the luckiest of little dudes to come into your family!! And then how i was able to come help with your big baby shower and spend time shadowing you and rubbing your feet. I also feel so lucky to have been able to be there last week to hang out with you and wait, help count the contractions during church, rub your feet some more, play with the girls and spend time with you before the new one arrives. I wish I could be there supporting you even more during the birth of baby Mac, but just know you are going to do absolutely amazing. I was so impressed with your birth wall, and your labor beads/bracelet. all the re-usable nursing pads you sewed up and all your awesome postpartum kits for each bathroom. easier said than done, but enjoy the rest of this pregnancy. You have all my support, love and prayers. and i've been waiting, by my phone, and will continue to do so..... Baby Mac, you are in for the love  of a lifetime.

You are beautiful! I love you.

Devy! This is so so sweet. Imagine how much it is going to make post-due date preggers Britti cry :) You are such a sweet sister for being so loving and helpful to Britti during her pregnancy. We are all so proud of her and are collectively waiting by our phones until we hear that little guy we've been anxiously waiting to meet. I can't wait to send you so many photos of him this weekend. LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

thank you so much for this devy. I love you and erin had it spot on... of course I am going to cry! I have been wanting to cry all day long but haven't had a good enough reason to and so I thank you for being such an amazing sister and always being there for me. Baby Mac is in for the love of his lifetime and so am I. I can't imagine loving someone anymore than I already love him and my other babies. You are so sweet and I can't wait to let you all know that he is on his way.
