38 Weeks TODAY!!!

This picture is from earlier this week... I THINK JACK IS REALLY READY! (almost as much as me and dad are!)

Thursday, February 12, 2009


Wow!!! February 12th!! 31 days until Jack is HERE!!! It's been such a busy few weeks. January 31st my brother got married to his beautiful bride in Twin Falls, Idaho. It was a beautiful wedding for such a beautiful couple.
Mr. and Mrs. Muretisch

The trip was beautiful. Keith and I left early on the 29th and flew into Denver where we met up with my dad and step mom. We caught that flight (in 5 MINUTES!) and flew from Denver into Salt Lake City. What beautiful landscape out there! I'll have to post some pictures of the snow covered mountains and sites as soon as I get them. We all drove from Salt Lake City up to Twin Falls where we met up with the rest of the family. The food they fed us was AMAZING! (potatoes at every meal!) And the couple that put us up for the weekend were so hospitable. It was really a great trip and I'm SO GLAD Keith and I were "able" to go, with little Jack's arrival so soon!

We started our weekly visits to the doctor this month. We had an ultrasound on Feb. 3rd. Jack weighed in at 5lbs 13oz and right on track for his due date. It was so amazing to see our little guy again. He was moving a lot (as usual) and making it hard to get a good picture!

So far I'm not yet dilated at all, so I must wait patiently. We have been getting the nursery all ready for his arrival (which makes time fly). Keith did an AMAZING painting job. We taped for days to get everything just right, but it was so worth it. We are also SO BLESSED to have some ladies from church throwing us a baby shower this weekend! I'm so excited to see everyone (some people that I haven't seen in a while). My dad and step mom are also stopping over this weekend to help put some finishing touches on the nursery on their way to Lexington. Keith and I purchased a beautiful paddle fan to keep little Jack cool and keep the air circulating.

The cats are going to have an interesting adjustment. They have been extra attentive lately to me and my belly. I hope they like Jack and STAY OUT OF HIS CRIB when he comes home!
