Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

So cute! Thank you, Cindy!

28 Weeks & Counting

1. My pregnancy is going great! I am now at 28 weeks and in the 3rd trimester.

2. Monday, I had an OB appointment. They did the routine gestational diabetes screening test and the results came back normal. Things are progressing well and all looks good with the baby. 

3. I have the rest of my OB appointments scheduled out. The next one is in 2 weeks.

4. The other day, I washed a bunch of clothes. I don't think I've ever had such a smile on my face or felt so giddy when washing clothes...but they weren't any ordinary clothes, they were baby clothes! Someone at Rob's work gave us a TON of clothes for Maximus. They are all either gently worn, or brand new!

5. I finished sewing the crib skirt and curtains for the baby's room. I prefer calling it "the baby's room" as opposed to "nursery." I know...I'm weird..just one of those things. The rest of the room is coming together nicely. I'll post pictures one of these days.

6. Rob set Maximus up with his own email address. Yep...so sweet!

7. A few weeks ago when I was subbing at school, I was talking about my prego belly, a little 2nd grade girl said "It just looks like you've been eating a lot of icecream." HA! 

8. Life is really interesting for us these days...filled with anticipation and excitement! Some confusion as well...such as, what are the necessities to get for the baby and what are the needless items? We go into some of these big box baby stores and get lost in all of the gizmos and gadgets. 

Do you have any advice? What have you found to be the "must haves" and "most useful" when it comes to baby stuff?

Happy day!

Together at Last?

Remember a while back when Kooky Chicken was dreaming about someplace warm where he could hang out under a palm tree and swim in the ocean waters? You can check out that post here.

Apparently, that wasn't a dream. I found out yesterday that Kooky's been hiding a secret from us. Yep...on that vacation, he met a nice chick. Her name is Kooky Chicken Swim Girl...(or Kooky Girl for short). He's been corresponding with her for a while now, but just couldn't keep quiet any longer. Here's a picture of them together...

Could this be true love?

Here's another shout out to my friends at Petstages. I was so excited to receive a "surprise" package from them yesterday filled with a bunch of their products. You guys are great!!! Thank you so much!

Happy day!

"A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face; a sad heart makes it hard to get through the day." Proverbs 15:13 (The Message)

Our Pastor is doing a series on David from the Bible. Yesterday, he spoke about depression. For anyone that struggles with depression, please take the time to listen to this powerful message. You can listen or watch it online. Once you go to this link, then click on the sermon: "Dancing with Depression - 11/14/10."

Be Blessed!

Bucket List

Kooky started a 'bucket list' but needs help finishing it.

Are there any ideas you can give him?

Happy day!

Hanging by a Thread?

"If you'll hold on to me for dear life," says God, "I'll get you out of any trouble.
I'll give you the best of care if you'll only get to know and trust me.
Call me and I'll answer, be at your side in bad times;
I'll rescue you, then throw you a party.
I'll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!"
Psalm 91:14-16 (The Message)

Happy day!
