20 things on my mind....

1. I CAN NOT believe that I will have kindergarten students in my classroom Thursday! Where did the summer go?
2. I had my first Braxton Hicks contraction yesterday. Well, I actually had two and it stunned me at first because I didn't know what it was, but boy is it exciting.
3. I love being pregnant. I know that I am "not that big' yet and I will get uncomfortable, but it's such a joy to know that my child is growing inside of me.
4. Parker is wonderful already but he sure was expensive!! (ha-ha)
5. I dread getting up at 5:45 next week. I have been sleeping until 7-7:30 this summer and it has been wonderful.
6. I am so glad that we were able to go back to Peak of the Week last night. We have been gone so much this summer. It's so refreshing.
7. We get our class lists tomorrow and I can't wait to find out who is in my class.
8. I am really sad that my gran (my grandmother) is not hear to enjoy the pregnancy with me. I called her after EVERY doctor's appointment and she was desperate for us to get pregnant.
9. 20 things is hard
10. My mom and dad are redoing their kitchen and it looks so good. My mom still lives in the house she grew up in. She's lived there since she was four. (It still had the original countertops, so it was time for a remodel.)
11. My brother's wedding pictures are now on the Internet and they are beautiful! I can't believe she is married.
12. I love that I will get to be a stay at home mom for 8 months!
13. My 10 year high school reunion is in September and I have no idea what I am going to wear. I'm going to be huge!
14. Speaking of huge, I am in Sara's wedding in August and my dress is skin tight now in the belly. What am I going to do? The dress is pretty just not on a pregnant body.
15. Why do we spend more time with God during a difficult time that during the good times? I felt so close to Him during our treatments and struggles and now that he's answered our prayers, I think I don't need Him as much.....
16. My best friend Raycheal went back to work today after being on maternity leave with her second child. She was really sad this morning and I have been t hinking about her all day.
17. We got my uncle to cut out an opening in the wall between our kitchen and the den. He added a breakfast bar to it and I think it looks pretty good. I am pumped about it!
18. I bought a new maternity shirt today at Target that's cute. I need more clothes for school.
19. I miss Chad today. I am ready for him to come home!
20. Did I say that I can't believe that I go back to work next week!!!

Parker's Crib

We've been shopping around for a crib for the baby for awhile now and we have finally decided on one. I ordered it on JC Penny's website. We are going to use an old chest of Chad's that his uncle refinished for him. I haven't decided on any bedding yet because I think that my aunt is going to make it for us. I haven't found anything I like yet.....

The crib is supposed to ship the end of August! I can't wait!

Dinner at the Treasure Ship

As I said in an earlier post, I dropped our camera in my cup of sprite on the way home from the beach. The camera will turn on and I can view my pictures but I can't take pictures. It just makes me sick to think that I have ruined a new camera. I am just glad that I can get to my beach pictures though.

It's a ........

Well, the doctor's office was packed this morning but Dr. Allen still worked in an ultrasound for us. It was VERY obvious quickly that we are having a BOY!! As if the Sonseekers class didn't have enough, we're going to add one more! Chad and I were both very suprised but thrilled! My mom and I were convinced that we were having a girl.

We are using family names. His name will be Parker Holt Greenhaw. Yes, we know it sounds like a law firm but we love all of the names. Parker is after my grandparents because their last name is Parker. Chad's mothers maiden name is Holt.

I am dying to go buy something so I'll need to buy something blue soon. We are back in town now for good and we are excited about seeing all of our friends from church. We have been gone sooo much this summer.

Thanks for thinking and praying for us!

Tomorrow is the big day!

Well, tomorrow is the big day. I will be 19 weeks and we have an ultrasound appointment with Dr. Allen to find out if we are having a girl or a boy. I had strong girl feelings at the beginning but now I am just confused. I hope that the baby cooperates so we can find out.

We just got back from Florida a few hours ago. We went with Chad's family and we had a great time. I was planning on putting up some pictures from the trip but me being the clumsy idiot that I can be dropped the camera in my glass of sprite on the way home today and the camera won't work now. I am hoping when it dries out it will work again. My hormones are bad and I cried after I did it. Hopefully I'll have pictures to post soon!

Summer Fun!

Well, so far, my summer has been busy, but lots of fun. Between my brother's wedding, going to Texas, and then to the beach with Chad, I have been on the run. I haven't updated in awhile so I thought I would update pics from all of my trips. First I went to Texas for the Alpha Gam Convention. As advisor, that is one of my responsibilities. I was dreading the trip before we left, but we had a great time. Holly, the President, and Amy, our VP Finance went with me and we had lots of fun.

We did some sight seeing at the Alamo.
We went to a ranch for dinner.

Saying a prayer on the plane. We were a little nervous!!!

One of my best friends, Katy, had her baby girl in May. Her name is Harper and she is precious. Chad and I spent the night with her and her husband the night before we left for the beach.

Baby Harper

He's so excited about being a daddy! Isn't this cute?
Chad and I also decided to take a trip to the beach. We started thinking that it would be our last chance to go to the beach alone. We are going back July12 with Chad's family so we wanted to take a quick trip. We had a great time. We ate fantastic seafood but the weather was bad.

The story of the trip...Rain......
Baby update!! We go July 17 to find out what we are having. We are so excited to find out and we're counting down the days. I am ready to start making plans for the nursery. I also found out good news this week. Mrs. Gipson is going to let me take a whole semester for maternity leave. The baby is due in December so I will be off work until August!! Yea! I am so excited!
