6 weeks and 5 days to go

or whenever little miss decides to make her grand enterance. I really cannot believe how fast the time has flown. Not only is Thanksgiving over, but christmas is on it's way. And then Marlee is right around the corner...YIKES!!!

here is the 33 week bump
Kristen, Scot's cousin's wife, took some pictures of us on Thanksgiving. She wants to build her portfolio...she has so much talent!! We're going to take more pictures at the Christmas party on the 19th. Hopefully we'll get some good shots. Here are a few more that she took.

Every year around this time we give thanks. What about the rest of the year? I am one hundred percent guilty of this. We only think of being thankful during Thanksgiving, and I think it's time to change that!

2009 has brought many surprises to our family. One of the greatest; being blessed with Marlee. I cannot express into words (yes I know that's what I am doing) how thrilled I am to bring this little life into this world. I am already so in love with her that I cannot imagine how much more I will love her once she graces us with her presence. I also cannot wait to see how Scot melts when he first lays eyes on her and holds her in his arms. He's really in for it!! I truly am thankful for this wonderful gift God has given us.

I am also so thankful for the family and friends (new and old) that have supported Scot and I. Scot has such a wonderful family that has accepted me as one of their own. I love them so much!!

I am also thankful for God giving me the determination to finish school! Once I take (and pass) my NRCMA test I am officially a national registered certified medical assistant!!!!

Oh and here is my 32 week bump!

31 weeks!!!!!!!!!

We're really closing in on time!

Saturday was one of my baby showers. I had the best time, but WOW!, they are exhausting. Marlee got a ton of clothes. most of which is already washed a put away, thanks to a very determined daddy. We're waiting for the crib and changing table to arrive so her nursery can feel somewhat complete. We're also going to IKEA to buy a $60 dresser that will match perfectly with her furniture. SO EXCITING!! I'd also like to find some pink/brown baskets for organization in her room

Back to the shower....Kelli made my cake and did a fantastic job. It was beyond what I thought it would be, and it was delicious!!!
Everyone says it could be a wedding cake...and they're right. This would be a gorgeous wedding cake!! She is so very talented!!!

We measured my belly last night.....I grew another 1 1/4 inches in 6 days. Up to a grand total of 54 3/4 inches. She's really growing in there....

30 weeks

I cannot believe I only have 10 weeks (give or take) left!! Time has just flown by, which I didn't think would happen. But I am so glad Marlee is almost in my arms!! I can't wait to meet her and see her precious face. She isn't even here yet and I've never loved anyone like I love her.

Every monday we measure my belly, for obvious reasons. Last week we did it a day early, and my belly had grown 2 inches in 6 Marlee is going to be a chunker, I can see it now. I want her to be healthy, but slow it down in there!!

In the past 3 weeks I have already started nesting. I find this to be a really good thing. Scot and I have gotten so much done. We rearranged the bedroom to make it easier to put the bassinet/PnP next to my side of the bed. I like it this way so much better, it uses the space nicely. We also rearranged the living room, cleaned out Marlee's nursey, and cleaned all of the carpets in the house. After the shower Saturday the 14th we'll be able to get everything together!!

While nesting I also felt very creative, so I made a few things for the nursery.
 A bow hanger for all of her bows and letters for the wall above her crib.
