Pedro's wife to give birth tomorrow...
« on: June 20, 2005, 09:09:13 PM »
Hey, there, friends....

Tomorrow morning, at 5 AM, my wife Audra will have labor induced.  Labor should take at least all day, but they're predicting that by tomorrow evening, there should be a little one in our life, which will change dramatically.

So I'm not sure when my next post will be.

I do plan on continuing in this forum as a mod (I'll be lurking and watching! Mwah, hah, hah!) and a poster as time permits, as y'all are a great group of folks to interact with (Pedro's internet family...awww...).  Like I said on my blog, I guess you could say I'm a community junkie (this, for no other reason, is why I think I'd make a lousy monastic).  Just a warning that it may be a bit before y'all see me again that often.

Prayers for the servants of God, Peter and Natalya, and the child to be born of her.

Lord, have mercy.  Lord, have mercy.  Lord, have mercy.

Peace.

Lord have mercy.  Especially for your wife.  Man, that's a hard way to do it.

As we say in arabic, alf alf mabrook (thousands and thousands of congratulations).  May God bless you all, and hold you in the Palm of His Hands.  May He smile upon you always and grant you His eternal Grace and Peace until the end of time.  The prayers of the Holy Theotokos and Anba Paul be with you and yours.

Pray for me.

Congratulations on the New One, Hope.  She's charming and gorgeous. Such hair!  :) (all of ours were furry too.)

Hey I thought I'd add a 'late' congratulations to you as well!  I had our baby girl (Athanasia Kharatina) on June 25 at 126 am so I was just a few days after your wife :)  Baby and me are doing well too...though we're still low on sleep bc our precious lil baby enjoys wrapping her daddy and I around her cute tiny fingers with her crying anytime we put her down to go to bed. :)  Our's was a premie though... she was actually due to be born on July 5 and they were going to induce me on June 27 at midnight and from what I remember I dont think I had any assistance with the delivery...she is our miracle most definetly! She was 18inches long and 4 pounds 8 ounces at birth with beautiful blonde hair and brown/bluegray eyes (they keep changing color when I try to figure the color out!) she looks like her daddy and has my expressions (according to my mother at least...) 

Congratulations to you and your wife again, Pedro!

In Christ,
Mary
