Wow, I have not blogged in quite awhile.
First off, I still have a sore mouth.. I had an abscessed tooth that was abscessed to the nerve. It put me in the WORST pain I have ever felt in my life. But luckily, I was able to have the tooth pulled yesterday. And although it's sore, it is NOTHING compared to the pain I was in these past few weeks.
I must say, I'm dreading the pain of labor.. But the pain I've had was pretty intense. So, I guess in the next few weeks we will see how the pain compares...

I only have 7 more weeks (if the Lord wills) before we finally get to meet Robert. :)
I'm nervous, but so very very excited!
The wonderful ladies at the Villa Rica Church of Christ are giving us a baby shower this coming Sunday, and I am so excited and so blessed!!!
I'm ready to have everything in the nursery set up! I will definitely post pictures when everything is finished and ready.

Well, I've got to get going to work! I'm sure I will be blogging again in the next few days! Stay tuned...

This past weekend was Independence Day. It was such a wonderful weekend. On Saturday, Jordan and I painted our bathroom together. I must say it looks MUCH better as the brown color we painted than it did with the original ugly purple it was when we bought the house. It's amazing how a fresh coat of paint can change your outlook on things.
Saturday afternoon we headed to my parents for a cookout. We had some amazing ribs, potato salad, and baked beans! It was super delicious!! Some family came over later and we enjoyed the best homemade chocolate ice cream I've ever had! We had an amazing firework show on the lake and it was just a wonderful day!!
It was a wonderful celebration of Independence Day and how blessed we are to live in a free country!
On Monday the 4th we had a hamburger cookout at Jordan's parents. It was a really great, relaxing weekend!
To me, the coolest part of the weekend was on Tuesday. I had a doctors appointment with the specialist in Austell. Jordan wasn't able to take the time off work after a holiday, so my wonderful mama was able to go with me! The doctor just wanted to make sure everything was checking out with the baby. I hadn't been to the specialist for 8 weeks, so it's been awhile since I've had an ultrasound to see baby Robert. I must say it was most definitely worth the wait!!
It was absolutely amazing how much he has grown in the last two months. I can't imagine how much he's going to grow in the next 11 weeks! The ultrasound tech was checking all of his organs and other parts of his body. During a short time of the ultrasound she used a 4-D scan to look at the baby's face. She wanted to check his lips to make sure he didn't have a cleft palate. (which he does NOT) It was the most AMAZING thing I have ever seen. She went to his face and we were able to see his face clearly! He is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen in my life. (I'm sure this is a biased opinion, but we'll just go with it) I have daydreamed and dreamed at night of what his face would look like. Then seeing it for the first time made everything so real! I cannot wait to meet him in person and kiss his beautiful face! It is amazing that he already weighs 3 pounds!! He's going to be a big baby like his daddy!!
I do not have a picture of his face from the ultrasound, but I have a dvd of the entire session. I watched the DVD and paused on his face for a long time. He is so beautiful!!
But I must digress..
Until my next blog update, I will leave you with this picture of Baby Robert.
