Merry Christmas

(By Aubree)

You all might think we have fallen off the face of the earth. Nope, we're still here. We've been busy, busy getting ready for "D" day (delivery). We didn't even have time to put up a Christmas tree this year, and I think we might have about 3 small decorations up.

I just want everyone to know we are thinking of you all and want to wish you a Merry Christmas! We obviously slacked on the sending out Christmas cards as well.

Just a quick update. We moved the office stuff to a bedroom downstairs and Jeff painted the nursery light green. We finally bought the crib and dresser/changing table combo yesterday. It will be coming in 3 to 4 weeks, and I have 3 and 1/2 weeks left! Hopefully it will come early. Also, I went to my doctor today and the baby measured at 7 and 1/2 pounds!! Again let me remind you I have 3 and 1/2 weeks left. The baby is most likely going to gain 1/2 pound a week. That puts the ending result, if I carry to 40 weeks, to at least 9 whopping pounds!! My doctor tried to make me feel better by telling me he had just delivered a 11 and 1/2 pounder the other day. Yeah, thanks doc!!

Everything else is going pretty good. We are looking forward to seeing our families the next couple of days. I feel fairly calm and ready for everything, which is quite non-characteristic of me. I guess we'll see how I react when the labor starts!!
