Summer Project


This is Baby's coming home outfit and my first attempt at smocking. It's certainly not perfect, but I'm feeling proud of it! It was fun to learn something new, but it definitely took some time and patience. Hopefully there will be more outfits to come. We are just getting some last minute things together this weekend and finally packing our bags for the hospital. We're getting really excited to meet this little baby. The suspense of knowing he/she could arrive any day is so exciting!

Getting Closer!

We're getting close! I went to the doctor on Tuesday and I was 1 cm dilated and 50%. That's not much, but it's progress. Most people seem to think I won't even make it to September, but I don't really feel any differently. I am still feeling great and taking Bentley for walks everyday. School has started back, so I'm definitely tired at the end of the day. The beginning of the school year is always exhausting, but this extra weight on my feet is not helping. I'm so glad I'm not swollen, though. I think we have gotten all the last things we need for Baby. We still need more clothes, but I guess those will come once we find out boy/girl. Everyone still believes it's going to be a boy, but I have no idea. I am so excited to meet this little one, but I'm also enjoying my days with just Mark and Bentley for now.

Baby Shower Fun

WOW!! Look at that ticker! We have less than 40 days until we meet this little one! It's unbelievable really. As Mark says... we're about to have a roommate for the next 18 years that we've never even met! He's getting a little nervous about the whole delivery, but I think he'll be fine when it really comes.

I had my big shower last weekend and had a great time! I never feel like I get around to talk to everyone as much as I should as those types of things, but I really appreciated everyone who came. We had a very yummy lunch with one of my favorite desserts... Baby Bites! We got a lot of gifts and I spent this week getting some essentials that we didn't have yet. I had to get everything close to ready since I start school NEXT week! Yes, I'm going to be exhausted! But, I'm sure it will also help these last few weeks fly by! Let's say a little prayer that I have a sweet class this year that really gets along... no girl drama PLEASE!

Weekend Getaway

A few Thursdays ago, Mark and I decided that we couldn't let an entire summer go by without a trip to the beach. So on Friday we packed Bentley up and headed down to Fort Morgan. It was fun to be able to include Bentley in the trip. He had a blast!! We basically just hung out on the beach and enjoyed some dinners out. The beach was beautiful. There were a few tarballs, but nothing that stopped us from getting in the water and walking along the beach. Bentley was in and out of the water all day long! Mark and I challenged each other to a couple games of miniature golf! I won only because Mark gave me a handicap. It was so fun just to get away for a little break to the beach. There's something about being at the beach that is good for your soul. I hope we can still find time to spend together after the baby comes. I also hope Baby is a good traveler. We love to be on the go!

Even though we set up an umbrella for B-dog, he wanted to be in the small spot of shade right behind our chairs. He always wants to be right by us.
Life is good!
This is the best, daddy!
