So admittedly I've been pretty neglectful of this blog. One thing that's kept me busy has been work. Since Thanksgiving weekend I've been working 10 hr days and Saturdays, logging lots of extra hours in my cold, cold (though not as cold as previous years, thank God) warehouse. But the OT is a wonderfully blessing because Michelle and I have been expecting our second child, a boy, Nolan Sirius Haney (nerd name - poor kid.) And of course, whenever a new member is added to the family, the overtime checks are a seriously welcomed. So that's been our December; lots of work and preparation and holiday fun, all spent waiting for Nolan.
Well, the waiting is over! We are currently at Holland Hospital waiting for our little man to arrive. Michelle is wandering the halls with her cousin Emily in hopes of keeping dilation on track. She really wants to do this naturally. She was SO close with Carter, but total exhaustion and some terrible back labor forced her to get an epidural at the last minute. Michelle is more afraid of needles, however, than of birthing pains, so she's hoping to spare her spine this time.
So as we did with Carter, I will post a few updates here so family and friends can meet digital Nolan, and we can have a permanent record of this monumental day! Please keep my family in your prayers.
