Adam and I would like to take a minute and say congratulations to Dustin and Roslynn Dixon. They will be expecting their first bundle of joy shortly after us in August. The holidays with the McCord's will be quite interesting next year with a 4 month old, seven month old, 2 1/2 year old and an almost 4 year old. We are ever expanding!!!!! That's if Roslynn is only having one...wink, wink. We are very excited to have lots of little ones running around.

Roslynn- I hope you are feeling better with each day!!!!!

Expecting Mother's!!!!!!!!!

I have seen these signs in the past and always thought how convenient it will be when I am pregnant to park in those spots. Then once I was pregnant I couldn't bring myself to actually park in them, I felt like I wasn't "pregnant enough". So last night I was going to make a big pot of chili for the Colts game when I realized I was missing a few key ingredients, so I jumped in the car and headed to Marsh. I decided since it was cold and I was only picking up a few things I would park in the "Expecting Mothers" parking spot. Now I am addicted!!!! I believe I will continue to seek out stores that have these special parking spots (if you know of any please let me know :), it was so convenient and I can only imagine how nice it will be once the baby is here. Now if I can just get every store I visit on board with these signs that would be great!!!!
One great perk of being pregnant!!!

The Crib is Up!!!!

Adam and I ordered the baby crib last week and we were able to get it put up last night. I have heard many horror stories on how hard they can be to put together, I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive. Much to my surprise Adam had the crib up and complete in an hour!! Much because of my excellent direction reading of course!!!! Hee Hee!!

Here are a few pictures!! I am sure there will be many more nursery photos to follow over the next few months.

Congrats to Jason and Jenny!!!

Our friends Jason and Jenny Power welcomed their first baby boy today. His name is Drew Michael Power and he arrived at 2:00am this morning after 38 long hours of labor. Drew weighed 8lbs. 12oz. and was 21 1/4 inches long. He was a big boy, seems to be the trend of most my girlfriends this year. (I am selfishly hoping for smaller :)

Jenny was put on bed rest last week and was afraid it would be a long road to her due date on the 26th of this month. We are happy for her and Jason that they didn't have to wait that long to meet their little guy.

Congratulations Jason and Jenny, and to Drew too...for having great parents!! We can't wait to meet the little guy!

Ugh...Maternity Pants

Well it's official, as of today I can no longer fit in any of my normal pants. I had a few pair of my work pants that I have still been able to wear the past few weeks. Today was my breaking point. I gave in and went and bought 2 more pair of maternity pants today. I hate buying them but at this point they are a necessity, I can no longer finagle my old pants to fit with safety pins and hair ties. Adam keeps telling me they are an investment because I will wear them again, I guess that's one way to look at it.

I have to admit they are much more comfortable and I am sure the baby appreciates it too!!!
