What? A new post????

Ok, so I know I haven't written anything in about a month! I'm sorry, readers! We had my family here for Christmas; my sister was here until the 5th of January and we were really busy the whole time. Then I was really sick until about two days ago (coughing a lot and such), so it's been rough! Anyway, we had a great Christmas and hope all of you did, too.

I actually didn't take a whole lot of pictures during Christmas...too much was going on! My sister Abby is a great seamstress and she sewed up a storm while she was here. She made the baby's crib bedding, Amelia's flower girl dress for our friend's wedding, and bustled the friend's wedding dress. They all turned out great! I still have a couple things to finish for the baby's room before I post pictures, so stay tuned for that. However, I do have pictures of Amelia's new room, which Abby and I did most of. It is indeed VERY pink but Amelia loves it and I think it turned out really cute. See pictures below!

On the baby front, things are going well. He is still moving quite a bit and growing well! I have my next appointment on the 29th and then I'll go every week following. I think from this point on they'll check my progress to see how things are coming along. I don't anticipate delivering before my scheduled c-section (Feb. 19th) since it's scheduled at 39 weeks, but who knows? I'm not counting on going early! We still haven't decided on a name, so we'll have to do that soon. It's hard to believe we only have four weeks left. Time has really flown with this one!
One last note: Amelia has discovered the knock-knock joke. Her jokes go something like this:
(Amelia) "Knock knock."
(Mom) "Who's there?"
(Amelia) "Rice."
(Mom) "Rice who?"
(Amelia--long pause as she looks around the room)..."Table!"
Then she will repeat the joke with "Orange....zipper!" or some such randomness. Three year-olds do have some crazy sense of humor! So, hopefully now that I'm on the mend I'll be better about keeping this up-to-date. I'll have lots of pictures to share in the coming weeks, for sure.

I love Amelia's new pink room! Glad you're feeling better. Make sure you get over that cough! You sure won't feel like coughing after the c-section :) Love you!
