Pre Baby Fun

This is just a post about our life lately. It's been a pretty busy couple of weeks.
My mom, Russell and I met my aunts and cousins for dinner at Mellow Mushroom last Friday. We had to get a pic of the cousins for sure! I am the oldest-yet the shortest. That's how it is in my life! HA! It was awesome to catch up with Emily and Cliff!

My mama and her sisters, Dodie and Molly.
We had a fun time enjoying pizza and catching up.

Russell and I have tried to spend more quality time together since our sweet baby will be here VERY soon. We went to one of our very favorites, The Venesian Inn.

We hardly ever get an appetizer there, but we splurged for the night. Awesome ravioli!

Spaghetti-oh so good. I took more than half of this plate home. It was so good though!

Russell found a robin's nest with the mama robin protecting her eggs. Oh, the beauty of spring.

Beautiful blue eggs. They have not hatched yet, but we are keeping a lookout for them to hatch.

Belle now loves the nursery. She has a new hiding spot-under the crib!
Are y'all ready to see her little makeover? Get ready........

Oh my word! She looks so pitiful in this picture. She just got groomed this morning and she is still getting used to the haircut. Love her blue bows, though! :)

Okay, I have a bit of an update for y'all. Last week, we went to my OB appointment and I had an ultrasound to check the baby's size and measurements. Well, he weighed approximately 7 lbs 7 oz last Wednesday! Also, there have been a few doctors who are familiar with the blood clot fiasco, and my doctor has been in close contact with them to decide when to induce labor, which was recommended and the best thing for me and Jackson.
I will be admitted to the hospital on Sunday and induced on Monday morning, so Monday, April 21st will be baby day! We know that the Lord is in total control of this and we totally TRUST that it will all work out. We are also VERY excited! The reality is really setting in. We will officially be parents soon. We are so ready to start this new chapter in our lives. We really do appreciate your prayers for everything to go as smooth as possible!

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act. Psalm 37:5
