    Abby, you look great!!! I was wondering when your c-section was, so now I’ll put it on my calendar to be praying for you that day. That’s the same day I’m officially full-term. I love the name! Can’t wait to see pictures and eventually meet little Percy. 🙂

    So happy for all 3 of you! Very cool name!
    And love Percy as a nickname

  4. As a tender youth, I had both Percy and Algernon picked out as possible kid names (darn that British lit!).
    You beat me too it.
    I obviously waned over the last puzzle, but Chris and I found the castle on google maps and looked about at neighboring roads. Some of the names were, well, not human.
    Let me know about the stocking!

    Love the name. Prayers that all goes good with the c-section, they are not easy to deal with but Abby has a great little helper. I know Valor will just love having a little brother to play with. My 2 older boys are 2 1/2 years apart and it’s been great watching them grow up, they are now 17 and almost 15.

    Love the name and LOVE these photos. The one of Valor eating the strawberries is perfect (except for the missing strawberry juice that would be running down my arm)! 🙂 I always enjoy reading your news and updates. Makes it seem like you are not all that far away. 🙂 June 8 is on my calendar!

  8. Sabrina says:

    Awesome name!!
    I will be praying for a safe and healthy arrival for Percy.
    You look beaming, Abby!
    Can’t wait to meet the newest addition!

    Words cannot express the excitement and blessing we feel to anticipate the arrival of our gift from God. It has been a privilege to walk this leg of the journey with you and we anticipate more love and memories to come…you all are such a gift in our lives and we love you very much.

    Hi Gjertsens! I’m just catching up on your blog. O wow! The big day is tomorrow! I’ll be praying for you guys all day. I love #5’s name. I love the letter to him. I love how Valor is so beautiful and loving towards his baby bro already. And as for the potty training thing, my pediatrician (who has 7 kids) told me to not even try training until after the baby is out and everyone is settled. The big kid always regresses a bit, so you will be doing double the work. But you guys have figured that out already. Love you!
