Wiser than Birds

Who teaches us more than he teaches the beasts of the earth and makes us wiser than the birds in the sky?
Job 35:11 (NIV)

Happy day!

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Kooky Chicken decided to get some cash, so he can take his girlfriend out for dinner.
The only question is...
Where should he take her?

Happy day!

Almost There...

I thought I'd give you a little Pregnancy Update. It's been a while...I'm in the home stretch of the game and I'm feeling it.

I'm currently at 37 weeks & 5 days.
My due date is Feb 9th.
Visits to OB have been weekly now.
Getting excited!
Reality hasn't completely set in yet that I'm having a baby...I think it will once he is here.
Rob is the sweetest husband ever - he has been wonderful through the whole process.
I'm supposed to be taking it pretty easy, per Doctor's orders - this can be a little difficult to do.
I've had 2 wonderful baby showers...
My Mom did one for family & family friends. And our church Life Group surprised Rob and me with one last night.
The room is ready...just need to tidy up some loose ends.
Not sleeping well at night...I've had a cold/cough for about 3 weeks but am slowly feeling better.
It's getting harder to move. I told my mother-in-law that I feel like a "weeble wobble."
I snore REALLY bad, according to Rob. Poor guy...he needs his sleep too.
I plan to have a natural childbirth, but if I'm in crazy amounts of pain,
I'll opt for an epidural.
The grandparents are getting excited.
I am excited...
Rob is beyond excited!
Thanks for sharing in our joy...

And here are a few chronological pictures to show my growing belly!

Happy day!

Let's Hear it for Vinyl Decals

When Rob and I were putting together the baby's room, I wanted to do something that would go over the crib. But, we didn't want to hang anything on the wall, for fear that it could come tumbling down.

Well, that was solved by purchasing a vinyl wall decal. I logged onto Etsy and came across a company that makes a ton of these. It's called, Open Heart Creations, and I worked with Nina, who was great! I have to say that she was very accomodating. We tried to put the first sign up and had some troubles with it. Later, I worked on the verse portion, and was able to get that up, so I sent her an email to let her know. She was willing and sent us a different decal for Maximus' name at no charge! This went up much easier than the first one. I think these decals can be a bit tricky to apply, if you've never used them before. The key is to be very slow and patient when doing them. In the end, I think it turned out awesome!

Anyway...Thank you, Nina for taking care of us and providing our soon to be baby with such a beautiful wall!

Be sure to check out her site!

Happy day!

Happy Birthday, Dad!

"A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered." Proverbs 17:27 (NIV)

My Dad came to mind when I was reading this. He has a wonderful, even temperament and even though he is extremely intelligent, he never flaunts it. In all of my years growing up, I've never heard my Father say a curse or swear word. He is not a person that bad mouths others or puts them down. Rob has described my Dad before as "Even Steven." That's a perfect portrayal of him. I'm so blessed to have a Father that is such a wonderful example.

Happy Birthday, Dad!!!
