Camp Cankles and Preggo brain...

Got back from TVR on Sat afternoon. The ride was long, and when I got off the bus I had really swollen feet. It was really sad, I had almost no ankle definition. Hence, the "camp cankles". : ) Camp was good though. The weather was great. It was nice to be outside and not feel like I was about to spontaneously combust because it was so hot and humid outside! 

Sunday was a full day. My sweet church family threw me a baby shower, and it was just beautiful. Special thanks to Lisa, Sarah, Suzanne, Christa, Mrs. Bobbie, Becky, Mandi, Alison, Cindy, and Bonnie for working so hard on it, and getting us a pack-n-play on top of it all! I hope to get pics from Mandi soon, so I can post some up here. It was just so pretty-they worked so hard. 

After the shower, Jonathan was ordained. Pastor gave him a Timothy challenge, and other pastors/deacons gathered around in a time of prayer. Pastor presented Jonathan with a special Bible to commemorate the ordination. It was a really memorable day.

Us, with Pastor Randall 
As for the preggo brain, I double-booked girls night and a youth activity...and it never occurred to me until last night (both are tonight). That isn't the only dumb thing I've done. Worst of all, my best friend's b-day was yesterday. I totally forgot...and it was on the calendar and everything. I never really thought there was anything to the "pregnancy brain" syndrome.  : )

I am a believer now. 
And now I must go try to make it up to my friend....

PS I have normal ankles again, just in case you were worried about that. 


Waxing Poetic

Just wanted to share my beautiful Mother's Day present from my sweet Jonathan...

Thanks to Eron at GG's ( for getting it ordered and everything! 
It came in just in time for our preggo pictures. 


Preggo pics and drs. appt.

Jonathan and I had some 'belly' etc. pictures done today. Mandi Durham gave us a "picture session" as part of a shower gift. She's really talented. I am excited to see how they turn out. I can't wait until she's finished with them, so I can put some up. 

Had a Drs. appt. yesterday. Everything is great, but they did say I'm measuring two weeks ahead-but not to freak out and worry about it. She said the baby might be a little bigger, or I may just have more amniotic fluid in there, making me measure larger. They'll measure again at my next appt. to see where I am (July 1st I think). Maybe she'll just come a little early, and not be a heifer. We'll see-I can hope. I'm 7 weeks out now, which is crazy!  

We leave for camp on Monday. The high for the week is 79, with lows in the 50's. It will be REALLY nice there, I'm looking forward to it!

We get back on Sat. On Sun. we have our shower for Abigail, and then Jonathan is being ordained later that night. 

Can you say.....BUSY!!!!


New nursery photos & update

Here are a few photos of the nursery progress. The main stuff is done. The crib and changing table/dresser are presents from Jonathan's mom and dad...THANK YOU! Love y'all!! Now we just have some minor decorating to do-and we are looking for an affordable recliner as well. One step at a time!

Yeah, I have been terrible at posting lately. The time is going by SO fast, and it's been super busy. I kept thinking I'd get on here and update, but no...
The last two weeks alone have been insane. We were in Virginia for a VERY short weekend visit. My dad was in the hospital on Friday with crazy chest pain (He's fine now) my sister Emilee graduated from NSA on Saturday, and my Uncle Frank got married on Sunday. Not so much a restful vacation, but it was a good trip. I miss my siblings a lot. Got back to GA with VBS in full swing. I worked in preschool crafts this year=lots of glue everywhere! The kids were great, though. It was nice to see the kids from my class last year (4 yr. olds) each day. We ended up having 500 kids enrolled, and the 3rd-6th grade classes had a separate gospel invitation, with 40 decisions to have a personal relationship with Jesus! The week was lots of work for EVERYONE, but it was a great week. 

 Whew. Just re-reading all that makes me tired again. 

Now it's Monday. We have something to do every single day this week. Softball game, picnic, youth hangout night, girls night out, photo session, and I have another Drs. appt., among other things.  And next week is summer camp!! Then the day after we get back from camp, my sweet church family is throwing us a baby shower. Later that night, Jonathan will be ordained. 

Are you exhausted yet? I'm going to try to rest this week, really. 

There's just too much that I want to do...or need to do.  I think I'm starting to get a little nesting bug. I'm 32 weeks now...33 on Thursday!  Abbie is coming soon!
