    God Bless. All of you are in my prayers.

  2. I’m so happy for you all! I’m praying that Melanie has a safe delivery and a healthy baby. Looks like little Abigail is a big sister after all! Praise God! Can’t wait to hear the good news. 🙂

  3. Yes!!!! What a beautiful smile on both ladies! I hope to see 38 week flowers. God is good!

  7. Yay! This is a big milestone! With our fourth child, the goal was 36 weeks and then I was able to get off the meds and the bedrest that had kept her in the womb from the 30 week point. She was born at 36 weeks, 1 day and was perfect and healthy–we went home 2 days later with no need for NICU care. 🙂
    I’m so glad that Baby M is still safely tucked away in Mommy’s womb and will continue to pray for a safe and easy delivery.

  8. Absolutely fabulous! Both your ladies look beautiful. One more week and lil’ baby Maxwell will be considered full term. I can’t wait til the week 40+ pictures of the little guy or gal.

  9. Such a blessing ! Miss Melanie looks so thrilled to have those flowers too ! 🙂 Still praying for baby Maxwell.

  10. Praise the Lord for His protection over you and your little one. I know you’re all getting so excited. Praying for a safe delivery.

  16. Thank you for sharing such wonderful news! Children are indeed a blessing from the Lord, and this child is already a blessing to so many. Praying for you in the uncomfortable but welcome days ahead as your baby continues to grow and stay in the womb…..that he or she would be born in God’s perfect timing, and in perfect health.

  17. Yeah!!!!! My heart leaped for joy in seeing you all at week 36!!!! Congratulations!!! Praying for a wonderful delivery; only one more week until you are full term 🙂 I had a baby at 35 weeks and we went home after two days; no NICU.

  18. I just commented but read the verse you wrote on the top of the page and oh how it hit my heart. I have copied it down to meditate on and memorize. I would be 7 months pregnant right now but lost our baby after seeing its little heart beat several times. I don’t have peace right now in my pain and that verse really ministered to me. Thank you!!!
    Hugs, Mrs. D. I’m very sorry for your loss :-(. As I was putting the blog post up for Nathan, the Lord prompted my heart with the Scripture to put with it. I’m glad it was a blessing to you. Love, Sarah

  19. Praise the Lord indeed! Continuing to pray for a trouble free delivery. Melanie and Abigail are simply beaming!

  20. To God be the glory! That’s wonderful! What a beautiful picture of Melanie and cute one of Abby! Continuing to pray for all of you! Thanks for the update! That’s great! God bless!

  23. Wonderful news! Will be praying that God blesses your labor and delivery plans and gives you peace 🙂

  24. I realized today that Melanie and I must have the same due date week. I have been praying for them and will continue to do so. God bless and may He keep them in His tender care.

  25. Congrats!!! How very exciting! We will continue to pray for you all – for a blessed labor and delivery!

  26. “To God be the glory, greart things he has done” This is the hymn that I began to sing as I read your post. I am so excited for you all. Melanie, you look absolutely beautiful and little Abby equally beautiful. I need to pick up the speed with my knitting 🙂 Such a blessing.

    Blessings, Mrs. Mari

  27. What a celebration to reach 36 weeks! We rejoice with you, and pray for a safe delivery for this precious life. Thank you for keepin us posted!

  28. YAY! So excited for you all! 🙂 Drove to Leavenworth for the first time last week and “really” prayed for you! lol Seriously – Have you made your decision yet as to which hospital? I know you mentioned in the last blog that you’d visited a couple and were praying about where to deliver. I’ve been praying for you as I know that’s such a big decision! 🙂

  29. Most excellent! Our God is a GREAT God!!! I’m praying Melanie gets flowers in another week 🙂 God Bless and be with you all!!!

    Thanks for sharing the precious pictures of both Melanie and Abigail!!!

  30. How wonderful to see the Maxwell ladies in the “bloom” of health!

    We are praying for you all.

  31. What wonderful praise! So happy and thankful that Melanie and baby are doing so well. It won’t be long now until Miss Abigail is holding her little brother/sister. Praise be to God!

  32. Praise God!!!! I’m so glad to hear that Melanie and the baby are doing so well!!!

    The silly waving White City lady!

  33. Praise the Lord! Thank you for sharing your joy with us. We’re keeping your family and your delivery plans in prayer.

  34. Yay! Praise the Lord! I hit 34 weeks this past Wednesday, so it’s been easy to remember about how far along Melanie is. I’ve been praying for the baby to not be born until at least August, and that’s pretty close!

  35. Yahoo! Praise the Lord! What a blessing!

    Melanie looks radiant! Pregnant ladies have a beauty that no one else can even come close to. 🙂

    Still praying for all of you. And also for the commenter named Jennifer D. I know what it is to notice erased due dates on a calendar. May God give you the comfort only He can bring.

  36. Yea!! I’m so happy that Baby Maxwell has been allowed to “bake” up to now! We can’t wait to see pictures!

  37. I have kept up with our family since before Nathan and Melanie got married. If I remember correctly there were pictures posted when they were engaged and then married. I recall those pictures. I’m so thankful for their patience and faith in God regarding their family. Praying for a God honoring delivery of a healthy baby and healthy momma.

  38. I’m thrilled to see this and realizing that she’s now almost 37 weeks!!!! Melanie, I’ve prayed for you since your wedding and through all of those years of waiting and your loss of precious Susannah. What a blessing to see how God is working His good in your life. Children are a gift from the Lord!
