I have so much to be thankful for this year. I am thankful for my amazingly strong and supportive family. We have been through a lot this year, but we all hold tight to each other and learn to make it through. I am thankful that my dear Aunt Cin is no longer in pain and suffering. She is partying up in heaven now, watching over all of us. We could all use an extra angel, right? I am thankful that God has blessed Joe and me with our first child, a son. We have waited so long for this and to finally experience it is truly amazing. It's hard, but always remember, God has a plan, if you want to follow His plan, you must go by HIS timing not your own...I have learned this! I am also so thankful for my amazing best friend. Not sure where I would be without her. LAUREN RAWSON, you are my rock and I know I can always count on you for anything. Whether tragedy hits and I need someone to cry to or my drive home is just making me crazy, I know you will listen! I also have a ton of other friends, old and new that I am incredibly thankful for, my life is what it is because of you!
Baby Update: So I haven't blogged in forever and I promised it wouldn't be so long the last time, but I do have a half of an excuse, other than being crazy busy lately...our laptop is about to hit the dust and won't connect to the internet, so I have to come use our ancient desktop to make this post :)
I am 35 weeks this Saturday. Gavin is over 5 pounds and measuring 18.5 inches. All of our appointments have been normal and the doctor says everything is looking good. The nursery is all finished with the exception of the bookshelf which my parents will hopefully be bringing down at Christmas time.
We have been so blessed to have 3 amazing baby showers. So many people have given us great words of wisdom and some pretty great gifts! We have just about everything we need!
I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving and remember there is always something to be thankful for, no matter what your circumstances are! Much love to all!
