"For the Lord God is a sun and shield; He bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold
from those whose walk is blameless."
Psalm 84:11

10 Weeks Later...The Crib Arrives

The wait is finally over! Our crib is officially here and assembled!! We were getting pretty anxious about it, but no more!! We absolutely love it! I was a little nervous about Craig putting it together, but once again, he proved me wrong! He did a fantastic job and it only took him 2 1/2 hours. Now we just need a little baby to place in it! Here are some photos of the lovely crib and beautiful bedding!!

Time is crawling, but everything is coming together!!

I feel like my tummy is continuing to grow each day. It's becoming increasingly more difficult to walk without waddling and don't get me started on the sleep aspect! What sleep? I guess it's the Lord's way of preparing me for the sleepless nights ahead! The good news is I only have a few more days of work left! I'll have a few weeks to rest before lil Hutton arrives! (Unless he comes super early that is!)

The nursery is coming along beautifully!! Aunt B was here in Memphis visiting last weekend and she was a HUGE help in getting us organized! She cleaned out my attic, my closets, and was even dusting my baseboards! What a great sister she is!! Hutton's nursery is a few more steps ahead because of her help! Our crib FINALLY arrived today! Craig will be spending the weekend assembling it! I'll post pictures of the final product when he is finished!! Here are some pictures of the current status!

We are almost there! Just a few more weeks! Can't wait for the cute little guy to be here! He's spoiled already!

Baby Stuff, Carrie Underwood, and the Easter Bunny...Taking Over Pike County

At 30 weeks pregnant, Craig and I made are way back to the hills of Eastern Kentucky for one last visit before Hutton arrives. Anticipating several stops on the eight hour trip, I was shocked to only need one pee break! Can you believe that? As soon as we crossed the line into Pike County, we hit the ground running. On Friday, we celebrated my parent's 29th wedding anniversary at Pikeville's new Japanese steakhouse...And it was GOOD!! My father attempted to eat sushi for the first time and LOVED it! Shocking!

Saturday consisted of golf for Craig, and baby shower stuff galore for me and the gals!! First of all, let me say that I have never been to a more elaborate and detailed shower! My beautiful sisters, Lauren, and Rachel Webb, all did a PHENOMENAL job of planning the most perfect baby shower I have ever seen! Here are a few pics just to give you a little taste!

So after good food, hilarious baby games, and opening up the cutest gifts ever, you would think we'd take a rest...Oh but no! Carrie Underwood had made her way to the mountains of Appalachia for a quick stop during her tour! It was now time to slip on our cowboy boots and head to the Expo Center to see my favorite musician of all time!! Here's a pic of all the girls before we left!

Her concert was everything I thought it would be! She is AMAZINGLY talented! We had a blast dancing and singing as Rachel and I were the only ones standing in our section! In one of her songs she rode in a truck on cables across the top of the Expo Center, starting out like right in front of us. I would make the claim that she waved at me!!

The weekend came to an end on Easter Sunday. We all put on our Sunday best and headed to church! Afterwards, the whole family came over for a cookout! Then it was time to hit the road again! (We made a lot more stops on the way back this time!) The next time we see our families, we will have a new baby!! Pretty crazy! Thanks for a great weekend! I love you all so much!
