It was fun getting to see everyone. Usually I don't get to see everyone since we are only in town for a few days so it was nice to have everyone in one place for once.
When we got back to Savannah we were able to pick up our crib and changing table. Noah put it together. It turned out to be a great color and I can't wait to get all our bedding bought so it brings the nursery together.
Noah building the crib for Ava. (I stayed away)
The finished product. Looks lonely still without any bedding. I'm working on that.
I haven't been very good with taking weekly shots of my belly. Here are the last three I took including the one I took at 30 weeks.
Man that was baby overload I'm sure. I know that's all I've been posting about lately, but that's what's going on in my life and it's crazy to think I only have about 67 days to go!!!
Almost forgot... I got a new surprise from the New Baby Welcome Wagon! This time it was socks! I can't wait to find out who is sending me these gifts. It's killing me. Thanks again though!

In August of 2008 Stephanie and her husband (Christian) were in a plane crash. The plane exploded on impact and caused burns on Christian's neck while Stephanie suffered burns on 80 percent of her body. I can't even imagine how she managed to keep her spirits up to want to survive. Luckily she had a huge support system in her family and was able to see the light at the end of this long and challenging tunnel.
Anyways, the point of my post is because I started reading her blog and every entry I read makes me fall in love with her positive and uplifting attitude. She is still not fully healed from the accident but she still manages to keep things in perspective. I love reading about her random stories about her kids and her awesome husband. It truly is an amazing blog and I think you should check it out.
I complain about so much and I have to catch myself sometimes and really think about how lucky I am. I pray that nothing like what happened to Stephanie happens to me, but if it did, I would hope that I have the same attitude as Stephanie to make it through. Giving up is not an option.
So anyways, check out her blog if you get the chance. You'll be hooked I'm telling you.

However, I wasn't excited about having an 11:30 appointment. Usually I make my appointments early in the morning so I can be the first patient and get in and out of there. But for some reason, they wanted to see my at 11:30 this time. I hate late appointments because there is never any parking and I have to drive around until someone comes out of the office and I have to stalk them so I can take thier spot. I also hate it because I know the waiting room is going to be packed. Today was no exception. Noah met me at this appointment. We waited and we waited. Finally we got into the ultrasound room an hour later.
I came out with some really great pictures of Ava. She was quite a little wiggle worm and she had the hiccups. So sweet. We got to see some really detailed features in her face. It was amazing. Of course it is too early to tell who she looks like, but she looks like she has a cute little nose and no hair yet. She kept opening and closing her mouth and at one point she was so curled up she kept poking her forehead with her foot.

2009 was quite a year that deserves some mentionables:
1) Noah and I survived and celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary!
2) We bought our very first home together :)
3) We found out we were going to be parents!
4) We managed to keep our jobs!
5) We got new cars in preparation for the new addition :)
We have been so incredibly blessed. We love eachother and are surrounded by the best family and friends.
I'm looking forward to this year. It really is a turning point because it will no longer be just us. The thought simultaneously makes me want to pull my hair (literally) out of shear fear and smile from ear to ear. funny mental picture huh?
So bring it on 2010, Bring it!
