Abby’s Arrival

July 15th, 2010 — 5:15pm

Well…today is my official due date given by my doctor. In my mind, she was supposed to be here by now….obviously, things have not gone according to my plan. They really never do though.

Our sweet Abby has decided that she really likes living in my belly and wants to stay there for a while. Fortunately for us, there is a beautiful thing called an induction, which will be taking place tomorrow morning! I couldn’t be more excited for tomorrow to come…and for Abby to come. I have been dreaming these last 9 months what life will be like once she is here, what she will look like, what kind of baby she will be…and on and on it goes! Tomorrow I guess we will find out!

I have loved being pregnant and having her inside of me…but I am ready for her to be here. It really is amazing how fast time has gone. It feels like yesterday we were at our first doctors appointment, and here we are, waiting for her arrival. The Lord has really blessed us, and we thank him daily for the gift of our daughter.

Here is one last belly shot before tomorrow!

40 weeks...Abby's official due date!

We're going to be parents tomorrow!!

Hopefully my next post will include some great pictures of our sweet Abigail Lily!

Greetings from Waco!

July 7th, 2010 — 8:01am

We are finally here and FINALLY¬† settled into our apartment. We’ve worked really hard these last several weeks trying to get our townhouse packed and moved to Waco (and I had the swollen feet and ankles to prove it!).¬† We were so thankful to have the help of our family and friends. We definitely couldn’t have done it without them.

Now that we are here and settled, we are just getting used to a new city and anxiously awaiting Abby’s arrival.

I have had such a wonderful time “nesting” and getting things ready for Abby. I have been waiting so long to do that and it’s been so much fun! We put her crib together, hung pictures, boiled pacifiers, washed clothes, blankets, boppy covers….you name it, I’ve done it! We put together her pack n’ play, swing, and bouncer….all of which make me want her here even more!

Here are a few pictures of her room…

look at those pillow letters! too cute!

We also set up the guest bed in her room so that friends and family will have a place to sleep when they come to visit!

I love the tutu around the lamp

I’ve got a couple more projects I’d like to complete before her arrival. I’m going to start working on making a hospital door sign. I’ve seen some really cute ones on Etsy, but they are way expensive, so I thought I could just make my own!

Here is, which will probably be, one of my last belly shots. It’s hard to believe that I am already 38 weeks. It seems like we just found out that we were pregnant…now she is almost here!

37 weeks
