Countdown: 6 Days

Posted in Auer Family, The Good Life on July 9, 2010 by auer83

Only 6 days until the induction…. we’re about to lose our minds!

I don’t know if you can get much more pregnant (or READY) than this.

Fortunately for us, there’s the famous DC/East Falls Church favorite – The Lost Dog Cafe. Great sandwiches if I say so myself.

Passing the time away the best we can.

Meanwhile, this week I say goodbye to a few more students *tear*

Good luck, students!


Too much celebrating

37 Weeks Goal Reached

Posted in Auer Family on July 4, 2010 by auer83

“It was when I was happiest that I longed most… The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing… to find the place where all the beauty came from.”

~ C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces

We have reached and passed our goal of 37 weeks. Now we are well inside 9 months, baby Noah is essentially fully developed and simply gaining weight, and now we play the waiting game.

Due to health complications, the OB has scheduled an induction for the mark of 39 weeks… in just 10 days! However, due to the complications they may recommend that wife be induced even sooner. We are so very close! On top of that, wife has been having regular (albeit milder) contractions, and we are getting the feeling that Noah could arrive on his own any day now.

What a beautiful gift from God our dear Noah has been. I say this with all honesty that I absolutely cannot wait for him to be here. I will also say without hesitation that my wife has never been more beautiful than she is now. What a strange and remarkable thing it is to be reawakened by the miracle of life. These past couple weeks have been filled with some intense anxiety, but I have no doubt that this wait will be well worth it. I praise God for the bounty he has bestowed on our family.

Almost there!

A Brand New Father’s Day

Posted in Auer Family on June 21, 2010 by auer83

We couldn’t be more ready for our little one to meet the world. The signs that he himself is getting anxious appear more frequently every day.  We’re near the finish line, and we’re closing in fast. It won’t be too long now.

See? Ready.

Mother is still more beautiful (and sassy) than ever.

Future Dad here (hey, there’s worse).

Met future Grandpa for a nice Father’s Day meal at the DC University Club.

Some warm fellowship and refreshments in the parlor before dinner.

Cheese, cheese, and more cheese. And a little spirits of course.

Lost in space.

Ok, time for real food.

Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without Mom Creason.

Could you please pass the All Fruit?

Dashing Papa Auer in repose.

Got to enjoy a cigar and a much needed visit with my other (God) Father – Captain Rudy Dause.

It was a beautiful Father’s Day weekend. And all the time we are thinking, next Father’s Day will be so different.

Meanwhile in Hawaii…
