On this day 4 years ago, I married the perfect man for me. I didn't realize the extent of what this gift was, and still don't. God, in His infinite wisdom, designed a day where Jared and I became one in covenant to glorify Him. I dearly love my sweet, Boo. Never could I have imagined the husband that I have today. He loves the Lord and serves me daily. Boo, you have no idea how much I love you. We are now expecting our first baby, and I yearn to see what an amazing father he will be. I have no doubt that he will be anything less than amazing! So, here's to you, Boo...thanks for asking me to marry you. I truly am the luckiest girl alive.

2 1/2 weeks and counting

Well, it's official. I've been off work since Monday for maternity leave. Although I did cheat and go to work on Monday...long story, but I just had to say goodbye to some of my offices. It just wouldn't have been right to have just disappeared. Some of my drs. and nurses have really gotten to know and become attached to this little "Too". Today was such a productive day for me. I am enjoying being home right now...ask me in a week if I feel the same! ;-)

We are scheduled to be induced on the 15th...I hope that sticks. I know you're not supposed to plan these things, but it would be nice if he'd stay in there until then. This pregnancy has been so good. I didn't appreciate having morning sickness for as long as I did, but it wasn't too bad. Little Too loves pressing on my sciatic nerve as well, but it isn't awful or anything. I'm really grateful for such a good pregnancy. God is so good, isn't He?! We'll keep you updated of course...

4 weeks to go!!!!

It's been a while since I've posted (as some people have pointed out), so I'm going to follow suit like Meredith Horn and Kim Shirley and post with bullet points! thanks y'all!

  • We have about 4 weeks to go until Henry comes!!!! We are scheduled to be induced on Monday, Sept. 15th! We visited the hospital we'll be going to and took a tour, otherwise known as a "turr" by one of the nurses there ;-) I can't find a picture of it on the internet, however, it doesn't even look like a hospital. It looks like a castle! (You can take a "turr" by going to google and typing in Baylor Frisco, TX. Click on the Women's Center tab, then click Our Facility.)
  • I must give a shout out to 2 friends! Adam and Jessi are friends of Jared's from high school. They are engaged to be married next September! Anyway, they sent us a gift for Henry. They gave us a onesie and some binkies! The onesie is so precious!!!! Henry will be sporting that with pride!!! Another that he'll be proud to sport is from Ashley (I'm glad you're finally home, by the way. I've wanted to call, but figure you are soaking up quality time with Bryan). Anyway, she sent this to us from NY, and it is so CUTE!!! See below...

  • This weekend Jared whisked me away for a weekend getaway for just the 2 of us. I took my camera but didn't take a single picture. I got some from the internet, so I hope these will do. He sent me an email Tuesday of last week that said, "Don't make any plans for the weekend..." So we left on Friday and had a wonderful weekend of eating, shopping, and just being together.

  • Some of you may be thinking..."What about Rahab?" This is a story in itself. Jared works with a friend named Jason. He and his family (Joni his wife, Laney 8, Miller 4, and Hadley 10 months) came over last week to visit and meet Rahab. To say the least, the kids fell in love. It was a SAD moment when they had to leave. So, of course, Jared asked Jason if they wanted to keep her over the weekend. The kids exploded with joy...YEA!!!!!! We went over to there house on Friday, dropped her off, and gave the kiddos instructions with how to take care of Rahab...when to feed her, let her out, all of her commands for her tricks, etc. When we called to see what would be a good time to pick her up, Jason said, "You don't have to do that. She's just fine here!" When we went to get her, the whole family just "oohed" and "ahhed" over her. Talked about how sweet she was, how amazed they were that she doesn't even have to walk on a leash, on and on. We spent a couple of hours visiting with them, but eventually we had to go. Laney and Miller literally clung to Ray as they said sad!!! They begged us to take care of her again. We are so proud of our little Ray and can't wait to see what good friends she and Henry will be...just look at that face!

Here are the latest belly pics from the last 2 weeks. Yes, I'm wearing the same outfit! I only have 1 pair of shorts, and I wear them literally every day when I get home from work!!! This week is my last week of work until the new year!!!! I work for a phenomenal company!!!
