Christmas in July

I finally got around to scanning all of last years Christmas cards.  We hate to just throw them out so scanning is a great way to save them without taking up physical storage space.  If it were up to me, I would probably leave them on the fridge year round:)

baby bump

I think 27 weeks was the last picture I posted.  Here's the progress since then...

28 weeks - May 13


 30 weeks - May 27


June 7th after Gran's funeral with Johns cousins.  We wanted to have Steph in here post pregnancy with Anna Katherine (born May 12), but Anna Katherine was at her grandmother's house when we took this pic.
Sarah - 34 weeks, me - 31 weeks, Carrie - 25 weeks

33 weeks - June 17


34 weeks - June 24


35 weeks - July 1


36 weeks - July 8


37 weeks - July 15 (our 5 year anniversary!)


38 weeks - July 22


Hard to believe that it's almost time for our baby boy to be here!  We've got everything ready for him except the changing table which was backordered until July 28th and will be here some time after that.
Medical updates:
My "stupid placenta" became smart and moved like it was supposed to - so no issues there.
At my visit with Dr. Gumer last week, he told me that I have "a nice size kid in there" and he wants me to have an ultrasound.  He wouldn't tell me how nice sized he is, so I'm guessing he didn't want to say until he knows for sure.  Our ultrasound is Wednesday and then I see the Dr. on Thursday morning.  I'm anxious and ready for Thursday to be here because I want to know what, if anything, this means.  We're using the same Dr. that delivered 3 of my friends children (Jenni's Savannah and Kelly, and Amy's Colin), and they have raved about him for the last 4 years that I've known them.  I know we're in excellent hands no matter what happens!

Baby Shower #4

Now that I've finished all my thank you notes (214 so far), I feel like I can do some catching up on other things.
Grandma Betty took these pictures at Jack's last baby shower (I'm still waiting on pics from the Huntsville shower and there aren't any from the Parkway shower).  
The food was delicious, the company was great, and Jack got lots of good stuff!  Grandma Betty even wanted to know if the hostesses would travel and throw parties in Huntsville:)

you're only lucky enough to get a sash instead of a corsage when Jenni hosts!














John came to haul the gifts home:)

Thank you, sweet friends, for giving Jack and me such a great shower!
