What a Mighty God!

We had a bit of a scare this week. On Tuesday we went with Brandy for an ultrasound, fully expecting everything to be fine. Brandy had a tremendous amount of amniotic fluid and Michael's stomach couldn't be seen...nor was his stomach seen on the previous ultrasound weeks earlier. So the concern was that Michael may have a swallowing problem and was not swallowing the amniotic fluid. So we prayed and had everyone we knew praying. Well today we went to a specialist that has a super duper ultrasound machine and guess what ~ we could clearly see Michael's stomach. It would fill up and empty, just like it should! THANK YOU GOD!! The doctor checked out everything possible with his ultrasound machine and Michael is doing just fine! He has a head full of hair too! The doctor is convinced the excessive fluid is due to Brandy eating too many carbs and sugary foods/drinks. She has orders to eat protein & veggies and drink lots of water. The doctor also said he will be very surprised if Brandy makes it to Sept. 9th. Our bags are packed and ready! Can't wait to meet Michael Addison!

Michael's Nursery

We are almost finished with Michael's nursery...just need a window treatment and a basket for toys/blankets and we'll be all set in there. It has been fun!

I have turned the ladder to the playroom into a bookshelf for now.

Showered with LOVE

Here are just a few pics from the BEAUTIFUL baby shower our church gave us today. I'll be receiving the photos from the "official" photographer soon, but I wanted to give you a sneak peek! I just shot a few pics before the shower began on my camera. These sweet ladies worked so hard and I feel so special. Thank you from the bottom of my heart girls ~ I love you!

All of the decorations (cake included) were inspired from Michael's bedding quilt.

My Hostesses!

Michael's Crib

We (I mean Adam...I assisted) put Michael's crib together this weekend. It was a much simpler task than we thought it would be. The hard work is yet to be done...removing all those silly warning stickers that were plastered ALL OVER the crib. It is going take a lot of elbow grease to remove them!

Can you say tight fit?

Opening the box.

Lots of packaging...what a mess!

The pieces...

The hardware...

The directions...

The assembler...
