Baby G

Well, Baby G may be here sooner than we know it! We had a doctor's appointment yesterday afternoon and I had my strep B test and the doctor also checked me to see how things were going since two weeks ago when he last checked me. (I was at 1 1/2 cm. dilated then.) Well, I am at 3 cm. dilated and 80% effaced! The doctor said it could be any day now! I haven't been feeling any contractions yet so it could be another week or so before Baby G makes her arrival. Thankfully I have the rest of the week off of work due to Thanksgiving break so I have a nice long weekend and don't have to worry about missing work if I go into labor in the next day or two! We'll keep you all updated!

On a side note, I wanted to just thank God for Noah Michael Ayers, son of Mike and Kathryn Ayers, (Kathryn is one of my best friends) who was born on November 17th. He was born with the cord wrapped around his neck 3 times and had to spend some quality time in the special care unit of the hospital. He is doing well now and hopefully I will get to see my "nephew" this afternoon before his little girlfriend, Baby G, arrives! God answered prayers and I am so glad that Noah is okay. Congratulations Ayers family! We love you!
We hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Birthday Aaron!!

Today is Aaron's 26th birthday! I can't believe it has been 5 years since Aaron has been in my life, I am truely grateful and very blessed. Aaron is the best husband and Daddy that a girl could wish or hope for. Aaron did tell the baby last night though not to come on his birthday so they could both have their special days and not have to share with each other. So far so good on that request. Baby G is still nice and snug in her home for the time being so I guess Daddy is getting his birthday wish!
Here is a picture of Aaron and I at a Michigan game last year.

Here is a picture of our family even with Baby G in the belly! Kylie and I love you very much Aaron! Happy Birthday!

Halloween Fun!

Here are a couple of pictures when we carved Kylie's pumpkin for Halloween. We thought she would not like the gooey pumpkin guts because Kylie is a very girly girl but she surprised us and loved helping Daddy and Mommy scoop out the squishy pumpkin guts! Here is a picture of Kylie and Daddy scooping out seeds and guts and then Kylie with the finished product, her very own jack 'o' latern! Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!

Putting up the crib!

Aaron put up the baby's crib the weekend of October 13-14. We wanted to be well prepared in case Baby G decides to make an early arrival like her big sister, Kylie, did! Kylie was born at 35 weeks so I told Aaron that I wanted everything to be ready by the end of October for Baby G. Here are some pictures of the proud Daddy and his little helper, big sister, Kylie!

It is so incredible to see how the human body adapts to a growing life inside of you. Sometimes I swear that my stomach can't get any bigger but in fact, it can and is still growing!
