Samuel is Almost Here!
I thought that today I'd be enjoying conference, but instead I'm playing Mr. Mom, as Sarah is trying to control her contractions.

I woke up around 7:30 this morning to the tune of my wife exclaiming that she was sure today was the day.  Due to her body's signals, I believed it.

So, we've been patiently waiting for her body to get a bit more excited before we go to the hospital.  Better to wait here than to wait in a stuffy hospital room with nurses wanting to stick needles in ya.

This time around (our 3rd child), I feel a bit more connected to him.  His name will be Samuel, due to his telling us it would be so.  I'm not sure if I've told the tale of how his name came to be.

First off, ever since I can remember, I haven't liked names which work for both guys and girls.  If it's a boy, I want his name to be a boy name.  Same with the girls.

Well.. When Sarah came to me and told me that she thought his name should be "Samuel", I immediately shot it down and reminded her I had told her previously that I didn't like names like Chris, Sam, or Pat.  She said she knew, but that she felt that his name should be Samuel.

A number of days later, the name kept pestering me, and before long, I got the feeling that his name should be Samuel.  So, I swallowed my pride, and knew that it was the Spirit telling me what his name should be - like it or not.

So, if Sarah's body language isn't lying, Samuel Jason Jones should be born sometime within the next 24 hours.

I can't wait to see what the little turkey looks like.  I can't wait to welcome him into our family.
