Today is the day we've been waiting for...August 30th! Today is your due date, it doesn't look like you are going to come today, but today is still a very special day! 40 weeks of you growing in my womb and now we are just patiently waiting to hold you in our arms!
You have been such a blessing from the moment we found out we were expecting you...even before we knew You were You! We found out we were having a baby right around Christmas time! Mommy found out first and had to wait 2 days to tell daddy because he was at work! On Christmas Eve morning, your big brother Hudson and Mommy told daddy in a special way!
Mommy took about 15 pregnancy tests because I just couldn't believe it!
Our most precious Christmas gift was YOU and God gave us You!
Hudson opened a present, the present was a shirt that said BIG BROTHER! Daddy couldn't believe it! We had just talked about how we were ready to add another little one to our family, God willing and then....there you were!
Daddy and Hudson after Hudson opened his BIG BROTHER shirt!
Hudson was ready to see you! He got his flash light and tried to look in mommy's tummy.
He's loved you since the moment he found out you were in there!
Autumn, you are so blessed to have such a sweet big brother to love you!
You two will be best friends!
This is our first family picture as a family of 4!
Christmas Eve Morning 2011
Look how little you were!
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made
We had quite a scare when Mommy was 10 weeks pregnant. After a long wait in the ER many prayers and tears, we finally got an ultrasound. The Lord is so good...we were so scared but you waived to us and we knew you were ok!
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
2 Corinthians 9:15
We found out You were You in such a fun way!
Our sweet friend Traci Brisendine brisendinephotography.com took these pictures as we opened a box that VaVa made filled with balloons by our friend Kelsey! A lot of people helped make this so special!
We were SO SO SURPRISED AND EXCITED!
Such a special moment!
Our growing family! Pink is a wonderful addition!
Your big brother was so happy to have a little sister coming!
Here you are again! 31 weeks!
Look how big you're getting!
We can't wait to kiss your sweet little toesies!
They gave us a little sneak peak in 3d. You were all squished but oh so beautiful!
One spot left for this picture! It is for a picture of YOU!
Here are some other pictures of mommy with You in my tummy!

Our Baby Sprinkle!
You are already a blessing to us and we haven't even held you in our arms yet! Any day...any moment we will get to snuggle you and love on you! We are so excited! Your room isn't ready yet because we are in the process of finding a home of our own! A home that you and Hudson will grow up in and run down the hall giggling! So...for now, you will join us at Uncle Adam's house and you will be loved beyond your imagination!
You are so special, so beautiful and a child of God! We pray that you will grow to love Jesus above all else!
She knew that she was
formed by God's hands,
dreamed up in His heart,
and placed in this world
for a purpose.
We love you Autumn Faith Reid! We are so so so excited to meet you!
Daddy, Mommy & Hudson
