Merry Christmas!!

I can't believe it's already Christmas time again!! We are so excited to be spending our 1st Christmas with Caroline! Last year we received the best Christmas present when we found out that our lil addition was on the way!! So much has happened this year that we are thankful for! This week Caroline has gotten a lil more vocal with her laughs and giggles. It's so funny to listen to her as she discovers new sounds to make! She has almost rolled over. I believe by the end of the week she will have it mastered! We are looking forward to waking up Christmas morning and seeing the excitement on Caroline's face when she opens all her presents! Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!

Finally updating the blog!!

Sorry it has taken me so long to get around to updating the blog. The past few months have been super busy! We have been having a blast with Caroline. I can't believe that she is already 14 weeks old! It's amazing how she changes each day! Below are some slide shows of what we have been up to the past few months. As you can see Caroline has already been on so many adventures! She's had her 1st girls trip to the beach, 1st Halloween, she's been to meet Santa for the 1st time in Atlanta and her 1st Thanksgiving last week! I'm going to try and start posting updates each week. Looking forward to everyone meeting our lil girl! :)

Caroline is going to be here Monday!!!

We are so excited!! Caroline is going to be here Monday!! We went to the dr yesterday for our weekly check-up and he brought up the option that if I was ready he could induce. Well of course I'm ready!! :) Besides the fact that I've been super uncomfortable lately I am dying to meet our Sweet Caroline!! Yesterday I was dilated 4cm, so if she doesn't decide to come this weekend then she will for sure be here Monday!! I'll be sure to post some pictures! Reality is starting to set in that we are about to have our lil girl. Very excited and nervous too!! Below are some pictures of the finished nursery! Looking forward to many memories made in there with Caroline!! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Todd's 30th Birthday

Last week Todd turned the BIG 30!!! We started the celebration off with a cookout Saturday night at our house. The weather was perfect! Everyone enjoyed some beer, BBQ and cornhole!! Tuesday night we went to dinner at Tony's Pasta to celebrate with Todd's parents and then Wednesday night we went to dinner at Alleia's to celebrate with my parents. It was definitely an eventful week!! Below are some pictures!!

Caroline's 4D Ultrasound

Last Friday we had the 4D ultrasound which didn't go exactly as planned. We discovered that my fluid is low. Right now I'm at 7 which isn't alarming right now. He said that if it gets down to 5 then he would start to worry more. The dr told me that he's not putting me on bed rest but that he wants me to start taking it easy, stop exercising and start coming in every week to check my fluid levels. He also said the chances of her coming early have increased. Ideally he would like for her to stay in there until 35-38 weeks which I'm currently in my 32nd week. We go back to the dr this Friday. I'll keep everyone posted on what we find out. Hope everyone has a great week!! Below are the pictures from the 4D ultrasound. They didn't turn out that good due to my fluid being low.

Caroline- 32 weeks

Christiane's Baby Shower

Last week I went to Atlanta for Christiane's baby shower. It was so good to see Christiane!! We've been best friends since kindergarten and now we are both pregnant at the same time! She is just 3 weeks ahead of me, so it's been great having someone to chat with all the time throughout our pregnancies. Tuesday night was the shower and Wednesday we headed to The Mart to do some shopping!! While at The Mart we were able to spend some time with one of our sorority sisters Carol! Carol is also pregnant, so everyone got a laugh out of the 3 pregnant girls shopping together. Below are some pictures from Christiane's baby shower.

Yummy cake!!

4th of July Weekend

We had a wonderful weekend!! Friday we spent the day out on the lake. Russell can't get enough of the lake!! He LOVES swimming! It's so cute! As soon as we get to the lake house the first thing he does is run down to the dock and jump in! Friday night we went to the Lookouts game. Saturday morning we loaded the boys back up and took them to the lake so they could spend the day with Mimi & Granddad while we went to the Dunlap 4th of July parade. After the parade we headed to the Hatfield 4th of July Cookout! It was so good to see everyone!! Later that afternoon we headed back over the mountain to cookout with my parents. We were definitely full by the end of the day!! Sunday we spent the day relaxing at home. Below are some pictures from our weekend! Hope everyone has a great week!!
