"You are my witnesses," declares the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Isaiah 43:10

Blog Break

I have yet to determine if I'm going to be done blogging all together. I started the blog because James and Alyssa moved to Georgia and my family all moved to Texas. But now J and A moved home and my mom and dad both joined facebook. Seems pretty easy to keep my family updated on life now and I think the blog might be overkill. Maybe I feel like it might be overkill because I'm busy with a new baby though?? Perhaps I'll want to write in a few months? So for now I'm calling it a break. Cute pics of Josiah are easy to find on facebook. I'm guessing that's what most people who would check my blog would be looking for. :)

40 weeks. The last one:-)

Well, hopefully it's the last picture... Josiah's due date is tomorrow. He doesn't have to come tomorrow, but before 41 weeks would be nice :) I'm feeling excited and at peace about when he is supposed to come. I think I might feel some anxiety if he doesn't come by Saturday, but I'm trying to take one day at a time. Tomorrow is my 40 wk appt and I'll get "checked" for the first time. I'm looking forward to finding out what progress has been made :) Can't wait to meet the person who has been living inside of me for the last 9 months. :)

A Much Deserved Date

This is my Helen. I brag about her frequently lately and here is why: She set a goal to lose 60 pounds and began working hard last August. No tricks. No short cuts. Just hard work and dedication. And guess what? She did it!!! When she started working on this goal, I told her that when she reached her goal weight I would take her on a fancy dinner date wherever she wanted to go. So we went to the Melting Pot last Thursday and it was great. The truth is all her hard work deserves much more than a melting pot date, but I'm pretty sure she's satisfied with the fact that she is feeling and looking great alone. :) Funniest thing about the night- I went to pick her up and she answered the door and we were wearing the exact same dress. We laughed so hard and it was just one of those moments we'll never forget. We both were like, "I've never seen you wear that before!! I didn't even know you owned this dress!!" Great minds think alike I guess. :)

37 weeks

It's funny how you just get used to your body as it grows. I looked back at my 10 week picture today and thought to myself, "I really used to look like that?? I don't remember." I'm quite bigger these days :) Had our 37 week appt on Wednesday. We had our ultrasound and saw that Josiah is head down, but face up. It's ideal for babies to be born face down. Mom's who give birth to face up babies tend to have more painful "back" labor and labor (especially the pushing stage) tends to last longer. So needless to say, I am hoping he turns. We'll see. I think about meeting him everyday and can't really even imagine how amazing it will feel to hold him in my arms.

Baby Shower

Thank you so much to everyone that came to Josiah's baby shower and celebrated baby Josiah. Eddie made me this video today of some of the pictures from the shower. It was a great day. I love quality time with friends. Everything was beautiful and well thought out and the food was awesome. I am grateful for good friends. Thanks to Alyssa, Helen, and Vanessa for pulling the whole thing off. Thanks to my small group girls for bringing additional food and thanks to Holly for amazing cupcakes. :)

36 weeks

I am slacking on blogging! My sister came out from Texas and surprised me two weeks ago, My mom came out for my shower and surprised me. I went on a fun friend date with Helen. Had my baby shower. Decorated the baby's room for the most part this week. All these fun things I have pictures for, but haven't blogged about. Guess I've been busy :) I'm not very tech savvy and we got a new fancy camera (that I don't know how to use). It takes so many pictures so quickly and I'm not sure about uploading pictures now b/c I usually do a few at a time, but the camera has like hundreds of shots on it. Maybe once I figure that out, I'll be able to posts more pictures. 36 weeks! Josiah can come anytime! :) Yay!

34 Weeks

Hey. This is Eddie. I hijacked my wife's blog for a week to tell you how amazing she is. And how cute she looks at 34 weeks. It's almost evident to most people she is with child. We're hoping by the end, everyone will know. But I guess they can figure it out after when we have a quarter asian kid bundled with his little beanie spilling off his huge head. Anyhoo, back to the belly (sounds like a disney sequel featuring macaully culkin) baby is healthy, active, and loves to dance...on his mom's bladder. Should be an interesting child. Keep praying, we appreciate all you guys have done, and thanks.
