Showered with diapers…. (clean ones)

Hey Everybody,
Just wanted to send out a huge thank you for all the gifts and especially diapers that we got from Sarah’s shower this weekend.

Sarah’s friend Jen decided to host a raffle at the shower, and the entry fee was a package of diapers, wipes, or the cost of one of these. We ended up with:

Newborn and size 1: 995 diapers
size 2: 384 diapers
size 3: 146 diapers
Wipes: 996

Total: 1525 Diapers

Check out the video:

Thanks everyone who came!


Snow Daze….

So we’re here in the cozy warm of our house. We were hoping and praying not to have to go anywhere today. However, with Sarah’s appointment tomorrow, we would’ve had to got out in the deeper snow. So… We called the Doctor’s office, and went in for the weekly visit today. Everything went well while we were there. Kelly, the Sonographer, is only there on Monday and Wednesday, so we had to listen to Truett’s heartbeat for about 20 minutes, just so we knew that things were normal.

While we were there, we got a call and a text from the Apple Store, letting me know that they were closing for the day at noon. I’m so excited that I get to spend some much needed time with my Rah Rah!

Sarah’s working with her mom on a biography-type book for her grandpa. It’s been a long task, but I’m really excited to see the finished product. It’s going to be a wonderful thing for him to look at, as well as the grandkids, and many generations to come.


Playing games and an update

Our little man is definitely growing! He is getting bigger and stronger everyday! Sometimes I am still caught off guard by the whole experience! I know that sounds crazy, but we have waited so long for our little miracle baby that sometimes it doesn’t really feel real at all.

Last night I was laying in bed playing a game on my phone waiting for Matt to get out of the shower and Truett started rolling around. I quickly put my hand on my belly just in time to feel one of his huge feet kick three times exactly where my hand was. I pushed back and felt him pull his foot back. Next thing I know he is kicking me again! So again I pushed back and that foot was right back kicking at my hand. We played like that for about 10 minutes. It was amazing! I was so disappointed that Matt missed it, but when Matt came to bed, he started doing it again! Over and over he would kick in the same spot. We would giggle and push back at him and he would do it again.

We are getting more and more excited every day! I am continually amazed by the whole process of having a baby. What an incredible journey. We finally got to see some good heart shots on the ultrasound this week now that he has turned around and is head down! Kelly, the sonographer slowed it down and we could even see the valves opening and closing. His little 4 chamber heart looks perfect! We finally got a profile picture too… (Matt needs to scan it so we can put it up). She had a hard time getting it though because he kept burying his face in the placenta! Silly boy!

I’m feeling so much stronger and getting my energy back slowly but surely. I’m hoping that it comes back full force in the next few weeks! I’m running out of time before this little man makes his appearance!

We are continually blessed by all of you! Your prayers, calls, and visits mean so much. Thank you for loving us!
