Random Update

Well, I am officially full term, so little miss can show up anytime now. We. Can't. Wait. We are so excited to meet our baby and hold her and stare at her and even for the sleepless nights and diaper changes.

Here is my 37 week photo...maybe it's just my shirt, but I think my belly looks way lower in this picture than the last one.




Bud's birthday was last week...he is not very happy about being 24. :) Poor guy. We both agree that 24 sounds much more adult that 23...maybe becoming parents at 24 is having something to do with it? Our glory days are gone! ;) Bud absolutely loves the Toy Story movies, and when the new one came out this summer, he mentioned having a Toy Story birthday. So a Toy Story birthday was what he got. I found as much party stuff as I could, but I wish I could have found more to make the house even more ridiculous!







We also got some fabulous news last week--we found out that we are headed back to Jacksonville, North Carolina after Bud is done with school. We are beyond thrilled. Not only will we back around our friends and an area that we really love, our good friend Drew is stationed at the Air Force base in North Carolina. After he and Kelly get married next August, we will all be together again. They were one of the main reasons we really wanted to get back to NC, so we are all so excited. It will be just like high school again....except with a baby, pets, bills, and all the other lovely responibilities that comes with adulthood. :)

I am also very happy to report that the weather has cooled off a little bit these last few days. It is currently 75 and I am sitting outside enjoying it. I walked Lacey 3 miles yesterday and 1.5 already today....both in hopes that it will help bring baby along and just because I finally want to be outside again after a very long summer!

Hopefully only a couple more posts with pictures before I can post that our baby girl has arrived!

36 weeks!

I had Bud take my picture this morning before I went out ...Lacey walked in the room, and he told her to go sit down, and this is the picture we got....




She really does love having her picture taken. :)

34 weeks!

Kelly just reminded me I needed to post a new belly picture...so here it is! :)






And I have a video if you are patient enough to watch it...Little Miss has had quite the hiccup spells lately...so I got a video of it. You have to be patient (it is a bit long) and watch closely, but her hiccups move my whole belly. And, a couple times in the video you can see her moving around.

Our House

After Bud's accident, when we realized we were going to be here for quite a bit longer, we worked on putting the house together a bit more. I hung some more pictures, we bought a kitchen table, so on and so forth. And, we worked on my favorite room in the house, Claire's room. We were supposed to be leaving here in about 3 weeks, and Bud is still not back in class so it will be at least 3 more months instead.

So anyway, I have yet to share any pictures of this house with anyone, so I thought it was about time. It's about as clean as it gets these days, so I thought I would get a few pictures.

Here's a tour of our little house...


When you walk in the front door...

kitchen and eating area


living room


the main bathroom


lacey's room...the futon has become her favorite place :)

our room

(we have a duvet cover--when we got here lacey started shedding like CRAZY, so it is in the closet until it cools down and she stops shedding so badly. the duvet cover has a raised thread pattern, and her hair was getting in every thread possible, so off it went.)


and last but not least...my favorite room!



This house is quite small, and we would never buy it, but it has worked just perfect for what we have needed for the past 7 months. And, Lacey LOVES her fenced in back yard--I don't know if we will ever be able to go back now!
