Catching up...

Well, its been a few weeks since I've updated the blog, so I'll just give you the run down. The pregnancy is going great! I'm 26 weeks now and feeling good- with the small exception of the MASSIVE REFLUX. If you can imagine it, my little guy is catching all my food in my tummy and then THROWING it right back up my esophagus. I am guessing he's training for some career in baseball. He's going to be a short stop for sure!
We had a nice Easter in Marion. We got to see my family and watch the kiddos ride in this year's first horseshow. Sadly, Ashton broke her arm at church camp, so she's kind of out of the show loop for now. Hunter, on the other hand, was hillarious. He did GREAT, but his facial expressions are priceless.

Mom and I on Easter weekend. This is 24 weeks preggo.

Mom talking to her grandchild, Roxy!

The baby's nursery is starting to take shape. I started out strong- I was on top of the bedding, furniture, etc. Now, I am stuck. I need to get all the details done - artwork, window coverings, etc. I'm also seriously lacking some baby goods. I go to friends' houses and they have pack and plays, bouncers, toys, etc EVERYWHERE. Greg and I have zip. So, my very sweet husband got online this week and bought some of the things we need. He did all his research on and got some cute little goodies. Now, we're just waiting on Mr. and Mrs. Fed Ex to deliver them right to our door. Can I tell you how much I LOVE online shopping!

We have several names we like, but none we have decided on. I'm so hesitant to pick something! Oh, well -I guess I still have time on that.

We also just found out that our cousins, Amanda and Jeffrey, are having their second. They are due in November, so our little guy will have a future playmate at holiday time! How great is that!! I tell Greg all the time that I REALLY REALLY REALLY want Amanda to have a boy. I have a sneaky suspicion Jeffrey wants that too....being a farmer and all!

We also went to a fundraiser last Saturday night for Juvenile Diabetes. I've included a pic from that evening, just to show you the preggo progress. The baby bump is growing weekly and hopefully is an indication of a healthy, happy little boy. We've been so fortunate to have a good pregnancy so far and to be blessed with a son. I'm so anxious to meet him....

And to top it all off, Greg and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary this week! Four years-- man, time flies by! He's a wonderful man, husband and soon-to-be daddy! I'm a lucky girl!
