...but she's not ours! I'm excited to congratulate my sister and brother-in-law on the birth of their Darling Little Princess! She's sooooooo tiny and precious!
Here she is with Darling Little Redhead a few hours after her birth.
One of the nurses asked if I had uterus envy seeing how I was supposed to have our baby first! We all got a good chuckle out of that. Looks like if our guy doesn't come on his own before, my Dr. will break my water sometimes this weekend. Thanks for praying for us!
P.S. Does anyone know why my paragraph breaks are not showing up here??? Help!

The garage sale was a success in our minds. We made $310 and only had 2 boxes and a duffel bag of stuff left over! It felt great to purge and get paid for it! :)
Papa and Grammy took Darling Little Redhead and his cousin for the day so we wouldn't have to worry about him during the yard sale. They went out on the boat and played at the lakefront! Here they are having loads of fun...
On Sunday the church I grew up in had a baby shower for my sister and I. It was fun and boy, did we get spoiled! I got a ton of 0-6 month stuff, including lots of warm clothes. That was a big need since all of Darling Little Redheads hand-me-downs were summer clothes (we lived in the tropics when he was a baby). Here I am with my sister...
No signs of the baby's arrival yet...Thursday is my official due date. My mother-in-love is willing the baby to be born tomorrow on her birthday! :) We'll see what happens. Hopefully the next post will include baby pics.

This ones for all my girlfriends out there...39 weeks! Still no contractions to speak of, but the baby seems to have dropped and I am definitely not as energetic as I was a few weeks ago. Which is why I am wondering if I am TOTALLY insane to be having a garage sale this weekend!
Look at all the stuff I have...and I haven't priced a thing yet! I'm sure it will all come together. I figured I will have more time and energy now even at 39 weeks pregnant than I will after the baby is born though so we are going for it!
My dad would croak if he realized he stored this stuff in his garage for four years while we were overseas...just so I could have a garage sale two months after getting home! I should have counted how many times honey and I asked each other, "What did we save this for?" :)
