One Month to Go!

Hey, everyone. Just wanted to post a quick update. We got a cute video of Ellie saying her ABC's after us, so check that out below. It's a little under 3 minutes long. Baby is doing well. I had some pain and weird stuff going on early this week, but the doctor checked it out and everything is fine. I've been contracting a lot, so my body is already starting to get ready. I think she'll stay put for a few more weeks yet, though. We have a super busy but super fun weekend lined up. We have a birthday party and our Pinochle card game tonight. Then tomorrow, some sweet friends are throwing me a shower after church, we'll teach our FPU class at 4 and we have our LifeGroup at 6:30! Looking forward to all of it, though. UPDATE: I wrote that on Saturday and then had some issues loading the video below, so now it's Monday. Our day was long but went really well. The shower was lovely, and I'm super grateful to my friends for all their hard work. Check out how beautiful it was below!

Ellie is doing great. We did a bit of udpating to her room, and she seems to like her dots (check out the photos below). She's still really affectionate and generous with her kisses and loves to play at the park and watch Elmo. She still has Daddy's curls, so we've yet to cut her hair! Oh - and speaking of her hair, I must report that she spent the night with Cookie and Crouchburger again last weekend and had BEAUTIFUL hair now that they understand the process. :)

Lori pointed out that I haven't posted any sonogram pictures and not too many belly shots either. The sonogram picture thing is because we really haven't gotten any good pictures like we did with Ellie. We have another sono a week from Tuesday so we're hoping for some good pictures now since she should be plumping up pretty good by now. We shall see, though. In the meantime, you'll see my growin belly in the shower photos below. Here are a few new photos of Ellie as well.

She may not have a happy face, but doesn't she look cute??

We added the circles and the letters up top.

Don't you wish you knew what was under that pink blanket? Well, I'll tell you. It's new baby's name. That's what.

It looks a little lopsided since we had to partially disassemble it to get it home, but believe me - it was perfect the way Shelley did it. This was the "diaper cake" I got at my work shower. How cute is THAT?!

We're so blessed!

For a moment I thought you were going to treat us to a picture of you in the shower and I was a little worried . . . You look great and of course Ellie-Belle is beautiful!!
