Almost to the End!

Wednesday Brent and I went to our weekly doctors appointment. Not much has changed since the last time we were there. I am still 3 cm dilated and baby Addison heart beat was at 130 and is healthy.

We did decide if she does not come before her due date on August 3rd then I will be induced on the 4th! So only about 5 days until we get to meet our sweet little girl! Brent and I are beyond excited and cant wait to hold her in our arms. I have a feeling we are just gonna let everyone look at her while Brent and I hold her! :)

Lately we have just been getting everything ready. I have a few more things to hang in her room and it should be done!
This week her pack-n-play came in from Brent's Grandparents! We LOVE it! It matches her car seat, stroller, and swing!

Some of our friends in Fort Smith, Lily and Josh sent us these today! Cant wait to get daddy/ daughter pictures made in them!! :) Brent loved them!

 Please contunie to keep us in your prayers that Addison is healthy and we have a safe delivery!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

39 weeks and counting...

Today I am 39 weeks! Only one more week until I am full term. I pray Addison does not wait until August 3rd to come ... my stomach is getting a little heavy to carry around! :)

We are so excited to meet her. My mom and I have been walking and trying every little thing to make me go into labor! We are hoping for sometime this week but I guess she will come when she is ready. 

I can not wait to hold her for the first time! Brent and I are so excited to see what she looks like.. its so hard to even picture it. After Brent and I have held her I cant wait for my mom, Gigi, and dad, ( he hasn't decided on his grandpa name yet) to hold her. It will be so neat to see them holding her because 21 years ago they were doing the same thing with me! :) I know as soon as my mom does she will start crying! I have this feeling that we will be doing a lot of happy tear crying that day and probably for the rest of her life! :)   

This week I plan on taking it easy and just hanging out around the house with Brent and the family. I am getting to the point where it is hard to do just about anything and i'm tired of trying to fit into my clothes! lol It wont be long until we have a little one to keep us busy at all times, so to have a relaxing week will be nice! 

Please keep us in your prayers for a safe and healthy delivery. We cant wait to post pictures of Addison. Also my little brother, Caleb, is having his wisdom teeth out tomorrow. Please keep him in your prayers that it goes well and he has a speedy recovery! 

Have a great week!
We love you all!

Today we went to our weekly doctors appointment. Not much has changed in the past week.
I am still 3 cm dilated. Dr. Sarver said she was head down and everything looked good. I guess she is just not ready to come yet. We were hoping she would send us to the hospital after our appointment but not this time! :(
My mom and I think she is waiting until her Grandpa gets home from his trip then maybe she will show her pretty little face! :)

Please continue to keep us in your prayers!
Have a great week and weekend!

The Result!

I can not explain how fast the past nine months have gone by. We are so excited to meet our sweet little girl and can't believe it is here so soon!

Brent and I both have sooo many emotions going through us right now... nervous, scared, and excited! Brings tears to my eyes when I think in less then 2 weeks we will get to hold our little girl in our arms. I can tell you right now I am not going to let her out of my sight!

Seeing her for the first time is going to be such a special moment for us. My mom, Brent, and I will be in there until I get to that last stage of labor then it will be just Brent and I. We are so excited to share that special moment with each other. We already love her so much and she's not even here yet! :)

We have been so blessed to have 4 showers thrown for us throughout my pregnancy. My Delta Gamma sisters threw one for us, my best friend Kari threw one at her house along with Christin and Chrissy, Brent's sweet family, and my moms best friends. Thank you so much for everything. It means so much to both of us. We LOVE you all!

All the super cute invitations:

The result---

You can't even see all of her clothes and goodies! We will have to change her 3 times a day for her to wear everything! :)

Please keep us in your prayers these next few weeks as we get closer to being parents and having our sweet little girl! Thank you so much for all the kind thoughts and prayers!

Birthing Class 101!

Today Brent and I went to our birthing class! It really was fun and I feel like we both learned a lot! I'm so glad that Addison didn't come before we could go. :)

It was from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm... so it was a long day! But they showed us around the hospital and that made me feel so much more comfortable knowing what to expect when we go and taught us a ton of stuff. I have to say... memories we will never forget!

Everyone was so nice. They just redid the labor part of the hospital so everything is brand new. The rooms we will be in are really nice and big. Cant believe that we could be there at anytime now!

This is the gift we won in a raffle: a diaper reef

They only had little boy ones left!
but we can still use all the stuff on it! :)

Tomorrow we have our 4th shower! I am so excited!! 4 of my moms friends are throwing it for us. I cant wait to see all our friends and family!

Here is the super cute invitation:

Please continue to keep us in your prayers as I get closer and closer to having Addison!

We love you all and hope you have a great weekend!

Baby Watch!!

Wednesday, I had my weekly doctors appointment. I wasn't really looking forward to it, besides the fact that we got to hear our sweet Addison's heartbeat! I'm now in the checkups where they have to do all those uncomfortable things to you.. not so fun :( but does mean the time is near! :)

We did find out that I am 3 cm dilated. Dr. Sarver said that Addison could come any day now and she could defiantly not see me going past my due date! Which is GREAT news!

Brent and I did tell Addy that we would appreciate her waiting until after this weekend because we have our birthing class and our last baby shower! :) Its so exciting that it is becoming more and more real. These past nine months have gone by so fast. We cant wait to bring her home and show her her room and all of her things!

Speaking of her room... it is finally starting to come together! We finally got her chair and I LOVE it! Brent says that he will probably spend many days and nights to come sleeping and rocking her in it! :) I know I will have tons of pictures of that!
Here it is:

Tonight I had dinner with my best friend Emily! We always have so much fun with each other.. laughing and talking about EVERYTHING! Cant wait until our monthly dinner with Erin, Emilee and Emily P on Wednesday! ( if Addison's not here yet!)
Also on Tuesday I'm going out with Christin, Chrissy, and Kari! We wanted to try to get in one last get together before little miss Addison arrived!

Sunday, Brent and I have our 4th baby shower! We are so excited and blessed to have had so many. All of my family is coming up for it. We really are looking forward to seeing everyone!

Please keep us in your prayers these next few weeks that I have a safe delivery and Addison is healthy!

God truly has blessed us in so many ways!

Have a great weekend!

3 weeks and counting...

Today I am 37 weeks! I can not believe Addison will be here in 3 weeks or less! Brent and I are so excited and ready to meet our sweet little girl! At my last doctors appointment Dr. Sarver told us that if I was to go in to labor after this point they wouldn't stop it... That is so crazy, scary and exciting to think! Please keep us in your prayers that I have a safe delivery ( hopefully fast :) and Addison is healthy.
Tummy pics: 36 1/2 weeks ( I don't think my tummy could get any bigger!! )

Saturday July 10th we had a busy day. My mom, Brent's mom, Elizabeth, and me started off the day with shopping. We were on a mission to get Addy's outfit to bring her home in... and .... WE FOUND IT! :)

I love it! We got it at my FAVORITE place, 3 Monkeys! Im always in trouble when I go in there.
Can't wait to see our sweet little girl in it! :)

It is for 0-6 mth. so she will be able to wear it for a while. I love the pants it came with too, those will be to big for her at 1st so she is just going to wear the top as a dress.

Thanks so much Mom and Elizabeth for getting Addison this sweet little outfit!

We also had our 3rd shower on Saturday. Brent's family threw it for us. We got sooooo many great gifts. Thank you everyone for everything!!
Here are a few pics:

Brent loves frogs so much!

He is learning really fast to love pink! :)

Hanging out in the kitchen!

Laughing at Amelia telling us that, " That outfit is way to big for her!"

Opening one of our sweet gifts, a homemade quilt!

Everything plus a ton of diapers and a highchair that didn't fit in the picture!

My favorite person in the whole wide world and me in front of our gifts!
Can't wait to add a little one to our pictures! :)

Dad update:
Thank you for all the prayers for my Dad. He is doing really well. Tomorrow will be his 1st day back to work from being off for two weeks. Please keep him in your prayers that he can make it through the day and not be in any pain!

Also wanted to wish my brother, Kyle, a HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAY!!
We love you and hope that you have a great day!

Hope everyone has a great and safe week!
Love you all,

So much to do.. So little time!!

We have officially reached the one month mark! I can not believe she will be here so soon! I think im 36 weeks.. I have lost track :) ( I need to ask my doctor at my next appointment, I seem to forget a lot these days!).
Lately, I have been having braxton-hicks contractions, this is defiantly a new experience for me. Brent and I are praying she doesn't come just yet, we still have some last minute stuff to do with her room and a few other things.... Here are a few pictures:

Addison's dresser/ changing table

Her bow hanger is starting to get full :)

Chandelier night light!

I love this!

Her name above her bed!

Her room is not quite finished yet, we still have to get her chair and a few more pictures to cover her walls! Ill post new pictures when its all done!
Wednesday, Brent and I are taking a tour of the hospital and then on the 17th taking our birth class. Brent says i'm going to laugh when they start making us do the breathing exercises.. memories we will never forget I'm sure :)

Saturday, July 10th we are having our 3rd baby shower. Brent's family is throwing it for us. We are both so blessed to have such caring family members. Thank you all so much for all the kind thoughts, prayers and support!
Here is the picture of the invitation... So cute!

4th of July weekend:
We had a great 4th weekend. Saturday we started out by going to lunch with my Aunt Sue and 2 cousins, Greta and Emily. We all have so much fun when we get together and it was so good to see them. Later that night my family and Brent went over to our good friends house the Rogers to have our annual Firework extravaganza! :)
On the 4th we got up and went to church.. The service was soo good. They always put on the best drama for the different military branches! Of course my mom and I cried the entire time, while the boys laughed at us! After we went to Brent's family to visit with them before heading back to my house to make homemade ice cream and have our family firework show. It was so funny to watch the boys shoot off fireworks, they always have so much fun! It turned out to be a great day!

My dad is also doing better. He ran a temperature for a few days but is really starting to feel better and able to do a little more. Thank you for all of the prayers. God really protected him through this surgery!

Hope everyone has a great and safe week!
Love you all,

Thank you for all the prayers for my Dad! He finally made it home yesterday. He is recoverying really well.
They also found out that we got out the part of his colon just in time. It was a pre-cancerous cell but it had not spread anywhere else. Praise the Lord!
He is so glad to be home and for this to be over with.

Hope everyone has a GREAT 4th of July weekend!
