its almost baby time!


its almost baby time!!!  i have three more weeks.

i would love to go early.

can i just say THANK YOU to all of you that have taken the time to email me words of encouragement,  inquiring of my well being, and overall awesome comments.  you are all so kind and i really appreciate it!

my lower back is super sore, but i'm not contracting regularly which is a huge answer to prayer!  the hospital bag is on the stool at the end of the bed and i'm adding things to it as i think of them.

the nursery has had a few cute updates too :)

we are all ready for baby #6!


i have been taking the kids to the library a lot this summer.  this is so typical of dubs....and of mama.
i didn't realize, until we're in the parking lot, that he was wearing huuuge tennis shoes, a total mismatched outfit and had snuck his silky into the land of books :)  

seriously.....is he not the cutest little 3 year old ever???  he kisses my tummy all.  the.  time.  and is super pumped to be a big brother.


i'm throwing this picture in from father's day this year.  the kids were all giving daddy a smooch.  
we gave him a tent.  but its been so blazing hot that they have yet to camp out in the woods....

we had a family wedding last weekend!  hank was the ring bearer and the girls handed out programs.
it was wonderful.

my ankles became non existent by the end of the weekend but they have re-emerged and all is good.

me and two of my sister in laws.  i'm not going to lie, its a decent shot of my ginormous belly so i wanted to include this picture...plus i love these girls!!!!!


having never been pregnant in the summer i must admit this super hot, record breaking summer is not awesome on the energy level.   but on the other hand i really think this had been my best pregnancy yet!  i am SO thankful for a healthy baby inside me, we're praying for a quick, healthy delivery.

  18. I was wondering if you had had your baby yet. I am so excited for you. Although I do not envy where you are at right now. I have had 3 summer babies and it was so hard. My husband had to massage my ankles at night so they wouldn't be the size of softballs. You look fantastic. You are just glowing. Can't wait to see your nursery. I will keep you in my prayers.

  26. You look stunning! Seriously. It is so great to see smiling, happy pregnant women who have offered their bodies as a living sacrifice for the gift of new life. And then you see your crew and I want to shout, keep up the great work b/c you are such a witness just by living your normal family life, mismatched outfits with too big of shoes and all. Prayers for a safe delivery.

  28. My favorite part of having a summer baby is that it's not freezing when you wake up in the middle of the night to feed :) and they have good birthdays for sports :)

  39. I had a summer baby..August 28th.. in Montgomery, Al....it was miserable. But, that precious boy that will be 10 in a couple of weeks was MORE than worth it. :)

    I'm sure by now, you've had that sweet baby of yours..#6!!!!! I look forward to seeing pictures when you come up for air. :)
