Why, Hello There!

... Still no baby :)

Just checking in to say hello, and to tell you all thank you so much for your sweet comments on my last post.
The break has been soooo amazing and I can not tell you enough how wonderful I feel! The encouragement to just rest & enjoy
this down time was overwhelming. Thank you for your support & encouragement.

We are getting SO excited to meet our little E! In the past couple of weeks we have started Lamaze class (I can't say enough about how amazing this class has been and how much it has helped us gain confidence going into the labor process-- we are so glad we did it!), gone on a labor & delivery ward tour, started having weekly doctor's appointments, have made a trip to Costco to stock up on tons of wipes and diapers, had family visit for a few days, enjoyed sweet summer nights with friends, enjoyed some fun date nights, and have just been enjoying this little miracle that is moving around like crazy in my tummy.

Here are some snapshots of the last couple of weeks! Thank you for continuing to share in our journey! Stay tuned... ;)
