John and I were talking and feel so blessed this Thanksgiving. We spent last Saturday with his family, Thursday we will be with my dad and step mom and Saturday we are hoping to be with my mother. We don't always get to see this many parts of our family each year, and we are excited. We know next year will be rough with traveling and a little one, so we decided that this year we are going to try and get to almost everyone. We won't be able to visit my sister, but she will be coming up here in January. We feel even more blessed to be carrying a very active bambino. We are so excited to meet him come the end of January, beginning of February. I was reading my mother's notes on my birth, and the day I was born it was -18 degrees, with a windchill of -33 degrees. I am praying it will be a little warmer when our son comes into this world. It's a crazy, exciting and scary thought that in a few months we will be parents. We will have someone who depends solely on us and will change our world, for the better! Here's to hoping that you all have a great Thanksgiving holiday. And if you go shopping Friday like me, be careful!

Well I had my doctor's visit today and my due date is staying the same, February 3rd, 2009. That is a relief, we have nothing but the crib at this point, so I am glad he is not coming sooner. I also got my RH shot today, which stung like crap! Today was also the day they took blood for my glucose testing to see if I will have gestational diabetes or not. I am excited to have my baby shower's, they should be a blast! We are still debating on a name for him, but have it narrowed down to 3. I have stamp club tonight which should be fun, we are making a calendar. I think tomorrow I may do some Christmas shopping, but we will see. Have a great weekend! Here is a picture to leave you with, me after 6 months down. Technically, I only have 81 days left, lol!

I am so excited! We finally have our crib done and in our house. John and his dad brought it home Sunday evening. They had to take one of the sides off to get it to fit through the nursery door. So, now John has to put the side back together, put the springs on that hold the mattress and it will be complete! We bought the mattress and the crib bedding set on Sunday as well, so I can put all that together once he has the side back on. Here is a picture of the crib without the springs and mattress.
