30 weeks growing & growing!
Well sorry it's been so long since my last post. Time has really gotten away from me since before Thanksgiving. It seems to just be flying by these days as I get closer and closer to Graham's big due date. We went to Dallas for Thanksgiving with Keith's family. I was so happy we were able to make the trip happen and stay for a few days. This was the first time Keith & I were able to go since we have been married & I know it meant a lot to him to be with his family. Then it has seemed that since we got back it was full on Christmas time already! We decorated for Christmas & I can honestly say it was the first time I felt like my body was NOT the same... I felt as though I had been run over by an 18 wheeler the day after decorating. It was well worth it & I just love all the decorations it really put me in the holiday spirit.
Also this past weekend Keith's family came down to celebrate an early Christmas with us at our house. We were thrilled to have them & we had a great time. My niece Brynlee came & she is such an explosion of life it was fun to watch her open and play with gifts. Speaking of niece we fond out last week that Amber & Kyle will be having a little boy as well. So that makes 2 nephews in 2010! We are so thrilled for them & I know that little boy will be a precious addition to our family. I know he and Graham will be very close & I am excited to be able to watch them grow up together!
Speaking of Graham he is growing steadily & there is a defined belly now! I am still feeling great & I feel truly blessed to be free from any kind of sickness this winter season. I have started to go to Dr. Burley every 2 weeks now so I have a check up tomorrow. We also have our last 3D sonogram next Tuesday the 29th. I can't wait to see Graham again & make sure everything is still going great. Throughout this entire process it is really amazing how much you have to have faith. I trust that God is taking care of & watching over Graham everyday. There is nothing more that I can do but take care of myself, the rest is up to Him. What an amazing gift pregnancy and babies are... I am blessed to have even had this experience. I know that it has changed me & Keith's life forever before Graham is even here... I can only imagine what it will be like after we have him.
On another note I just want to say how thankful I am for this time of year. I am reminded of how much God loves us. He born for us & died for us. His sacrifice is more than I can fathom & yet I am forgiven. I am blessed. I am so thankfull for Keith, my parents, siblings, and all Keith's family. So many people who love us unconditionally and to be able to share this time with them is so special. I can only pray that Graham finds someone someday who loves him as much as Keith loves me & makes me laugh everyday. What a great hubby I have & he is so excited about the arrival of our little boy I know he will be an awesome dad!
Anyway sorry for the mish mash but it's been a while. I hope this Christmas season finds you all very well & enjoy every minute with family & friends! Merry CHristmas!!!
