Last Auburn Home Game of the Season

This past weekend was the last Auburn home game of the year. We will only be traveling to one more football game this season, the Alabama/Auburn game in Tuscaloosa. I cannot believe that next season we will have a 3rd member of our family. Very exciting! We only have 9 more weeks until we meet our son!

Yikes! I'm blaming my size on Jake. I'm pretty sure he is a 20 lb. baby. Please excuse my snowman look!

Chattanooga Shower

Over the weekend, our friends here in Chattanooga hosted a baby shower for us & Jake. We had such a wonderful time and we just feel so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful & caring friends. I will post pictures on Sunday! It was such a special time and I cannot thank everyone enough.

Thanks Mom!

Another great thing about this weekend was getting to spend more time with my mom. With busy schedules and living 4 hours apart, we talk all the time, but it is rare for us to get to spend 2 weekends in a row together. On Saturday she helped me pick out & bought the glider & ottoman that we will use in the nursery. I know that it will be used countless nights rocking a little boy to sleep. It is strange that growing up, there were so many times that I doubted her wisdom & didn't want her advice, and now I crave them both. My mom is a remarkable woman. Her time is so stretched between driving 3 hours each month to take care of her ailing mom and in less than a year, she has had 2 daughters get married, and will witness the birth of 2 grandchildren. No matter how much we pile on her plate, she somehow handles it. Between the weddings & births, she has attended so many showers, doctor's appointments & spent more time on the road than at home. But she has never complained once. She just says, "tell me when you want me there, what you want me to bring & what I need to wear". I cannot begin to thank her enough for all of her love, support, and prayer. I would not have been able to make it through this last year without her and I'm so excited for the new experiences that this new year will bring us.

Double Shower

On Saturday, several of our friends hosted a double baby shower for Stephanie & I. We had such a wonderful time and it was so great to visit with our friends from college & family. We are so lucky to be surrounded by such special women. Thank you to everyone who attended & especially to the hostesses who threw such a beautiful shower.

The shower was held at Southern Homes & Gardens
