My Baby Shower

I had my baby shower on Saturday, October 17th. My sister-in-law and my Mom hosted my shower and made it very special. Our baby received lots of nice gifts and we had a blast playing games at the shower. My best friend Jenny picked the closest length of tape as far as how big aroound I am. Jenny knows me so well! This was a special weekend because Jenny, Jeff, Mason and Ms. Kathy all came from Columbia, SC to spend the weekend with us and attend my shower. Here are just a few photos from my shower.

The Home Stretch!

Hi Everyone, sorry I haven't blogged in a while. Well I officially start my last trimester tomorrow (8/28/09). David and I have been extremely busy getting everything ready for Baby Steven. We have the nursery all painted and all of the furniture in the nursery. We are doing the Disney theme in his nursery. We are going this Saturday to Images From The Womb in Suwanee to have a 4D ultrasound. We are very excited about this and can't wait to share some pictures with all of you. My pregnancy has been absolutely wonderful so far so I am hoping that trend will continue. At our last appointment the dcotor actually told us that Steven is measuring a little bit large for as far along as he is. For those of you that want to know we are registered at Babies R Us and at Target. A friend of ours will be doing a couples shower for us in October so we are looking forward to seeing all of you there. Invitations will be going out in September so watch your mailbox! I will post some pictures this weekend after our ultrasound on Saturday so be on the look out!

17 Weeks

Sorry its been a while since I made an entry but I promise to get better about that. We had our 17 week appointment on June 15th and everything is great! July 6th is the big day where we find out if we are having a boy or a girl. I can't believe that is has been 17 weeks already. November 20th will be here before I know it. September is going to be a very busy month for us because we are takingh 3 different classesd and going on our tour of the hospital. We go next week to meet our pediatrician and to go on a tour. We will be registering in July after we find out what we are having. We will probably register at Babies R Us & Wal-Mart. I will post some more pictures when we have the big ultra sound on July 6th.
