Upcoming Appointment

Our next doctor's appointment has been moved up to Monday, May 3rd! I am so anxious to see Jake on the screen again. He is such a wiggle worm these days that I am curious to see what it is he is doing in there (I think he is practicing his dance moves)! Check back on Tuesday to see Jake's ultrasound picture!

So many of our friends are pregnant and the due dates are quickly approaching. We are so thankful for all the pregnancies and pray that each and every friend is blessed with a healthy, happy gift from God!

Our friends Jacob and Emily had their 2nd little one under a week ago! Congrats on beautiful baby Caroline! It looks like big brother Crawford is a gentle helper!

Easy Breezy Appointment with the Doc

Last week we had our 23 week visit to the doctor. Today I am 24 weeks! It was a breeze of an appointment. We got to hear that healthy little heartbeat again and were on our way (although we spent a long time in the waiting room). Our next appointment is May 6th and will be a busy one. We’ll have a glucose screening test, blood draw for hemoglobin check, and a follow up ultrasound! I am looking forward to it. The time is really flying. Below is a picture of me at 23 weeks and I am growing…or Jake is growing by the day!
We also want to say a very special congratulations to Bonnie and Jeremy on the birth of their miracle baby, Isabella! She is just adorable and we are so delighted to hear that she and mom are doing well. Below is a beautiful photo of Isabella!

A Nursery in Progress...

It has been so much fun working on Jacob's nursery! Neal loves to "construct" and I love to decorate so we have been bursting with nursery ideas. The hard part is done! Neal worked so hard to pull down baseboards, window seals and trim to put up wainscoting and new baseboards and trim. I am so proud of him and so excited about how well it turned out!


The next step was painting. We chose a few shades of blue and then went back and chose a couple more. Once we finally settled on a color it was time to paint. One evening I ran a few errands and when I came home Neal and his parents were putting the finishing touches of blue paint on the walls! I was so surprised and excited! Thank you Buddy and Betsy for all your help!

Now to the fun part! Decorating...and of course another project for Neal - - - designing a closet to organize all the precious things that Jake is already accumulating!
