Getting close...

We are getting so close to the day we will meet our baby girl! We are currently 8 weeks and 2 days away! I can't believe I am this far along. I often look down at my belly in disbelief!
A lot has happened since the last post...at 22 weeks I was put on 2 weeks bed rest to prevent labor. And a week after being taken off bed rest I came down with the stomach bug and a severe bladder infection and ended up in the hospital for a day! And I have been constantly sick and stopped up the whole pregnancy; however we are so thankful for all of it & trust God in & through it all. Also, we found out my sister is also going to be having a baby in September which we are thrilled about! Our kids will grow up together! She finds out this week what she is having!

We had our first baby shower in Springdale, hosted by some very sweet dear friends! And it was so great to see so many familiar faces we had not seen in a very long time! Jeff actually stayed for the shower to visit. Since he stayed my friend Blaire took a few photos of us that really turned out great! Here are a few of my favorites! And some from the shower.






We are blessed to have such great friends all over Arkansas!

Our next shower is in Paragould this weekend! Really excited about it all! I will post photos of nursery soon - still working on the finishing touches.

Until next time! Which I hope to be sooner than later!
