36 weeks and counting....

We are 36 weeks pregnant and very ready to get this show on the road! We have everything ready for Miss Mollie. We installed the car seat this weekend! (It is so cute in Daddy's car!) We had a good doctors visit this week. I am about 1 cm dilated and the baby's head is low and in great position for delivery! Our doctor "guess-timated" a possible early delivery. Maybe around 38 weeks!
We also had an ultrasound that indicated Mollie weighs about 5 lbs 10 oz at this point. She seems to have a head full of hair! We can't wait to meet her and would love for everyone to give us their guesses as to weight and birthday! Leave your guesses in the comments!!

George's Inc Baby Shower

We had our final baby shower today! Adam's wonderful co-workers hosted a shower for Mollie. It was such a nice time and I was able to meet so many of the people he spends time with every day! They had the most adorable cake and we got alot of gifts! Thank you George's for a really lovely afternoon!!

That's What Friends Are For....

A best girlfriend is one who drives 3 hours (on a spontaneous whim) to give you a gift that she personally quilted for your new baby even though she has zero time to herself because she is so busy learning how to become a doctor....Christina is that best friend. I can't even imagine how many hours she put in to making Mollie a quilt but I can imagine how much of that time she could have been doing something for herself. But that is just the kind of friend she is. We miss she and Jordan so much and even though they were only here for a day, we picked up right where we left off! We never miss a beat! I can't wait to have tummy time and park outings with Mollie and her quilt. Hopefully her "Dr. Aunt" can tag along someday!!

I can't thank you enough Christina!! I love you!
It's so precious!

All business and no play! That was how we spent our time in California! I was sent there to attend the Toshiba training school to prepare me for the installation of our new CT scanner at work! It won't be installed until September but I will be on maternity leave so we decided to send me to training now rather than when Mollie is here. Adam was able to join me which made me feel alot better about traveling at 32 weeks pregnant! I spent all of my time in class and in the evenings we had dinner, pool/hot tub time, then bed! I was exhausted by bedtime! Adam worked from the hotel and relaxed when he could. The last night of our trip we rented a car and hit Laguna beach and Huntington beach. Laguna is amazingly beautiful and we hope to go back someday!

My second shower was at home in Jonesboro. It was hosted by the girls in Adam's family. Both of my sisters-n-law, Adams cousins, and our dear friend Brandy! It was at Courtney's beautiful house in Bay. It was such a wonderful day! We got even more stuff for Mollie!!!

The hostesses and myself
This was one of my most favorite gifts. It was from my mom. She had boxed up alot of the clothing items from my childhood and included a photo album with pictures of me in the clothes! It was so sweet and a definite tear jerker! I can't wait to put Mollie in her "vintage" hand-me downs! She will be coming home from the hospital in the same dress that I did! Look for those pictures in future posts!!
This is me, my mom, my mother in law, and my stepmother.

Mollie's adorable diaper bag from Aunt Lindsey and Ava! We love love love it!


I am so blessed with amazing friends and family! I have been given two incredible baby showers and Mollie has received so many wonderful things to welcome her to this world! My first shower was hosted by a group of dear friends (you know who you are!!!). It was at Kathy's beautiful house! She pretty much can host a party and look like Martha Stewart herself had been there!!

There was so much pink! I love it!!

The best part!!! Shelly is back in the states and will be here for Mollie's birth! Lindy also surprised me and flew to Fayetteville for the shower! She is very busy with vet school but made the effort just for me! I love those girls!!

The adorable and delish cake! So cute, right?
