A First Peek...

at Junior's nursery! Andy's dad drove in for Andy's spring break to help paint the nursery and put together our crib. Here's your first look at our son's future "favorite place to sleep" (note the hope & determination in my tone).

The official color name is "Windwood Spring" or something like that. We like to describe it as "Caribbean Blue". It's a light blue with a greenish tint to it...not quite turquoise, but not baby blue...I give up, you'll just have to come see it in person!

As soon as we got home from the shower a couple weekends ago, I cleaned out part of the closet and hung up Junior's new clothes. Guess everything they say about nesting is true!

I think the furniture moving and painting have definitely made this whole life change more "real" for Andy. Don't know why having a wife with a basketball for her belly didn't make it sink in sooner, but who am I to judge?!? Heehee.

Thank you so much Pa Wood for all of your help!

Campbell Jean Cummings

Not only did we have lots of parties this past weekend, we also got to hang out with our adorable niece, Miss Campbell Jean! We couldn't believe how much she'd grown since Christmas...she has all kinds of facial expressions and personality now!

Uncle Andy got lots of practice! Of course, she was so good, he probably doesn't have a true picture of "life with a baby".

We wish we lived closer so we could have more time with Campbell, Mark, and Emily...maybe someday!

Richmond Baby Shower

My Auntie Ann threw me a Baby Shower in Richmond this past weekend. It was so much fun! Women from all areas of my life were there...the majority of them were around when I was born, so it was very special to have them help us celebrate the upcoming birth of Junior.

Some pictures of the event...

My belly button is always poking out like this...a beacon of my prego-ness

Wow...this little guy is set for a while!

Mom knit a fabulous sweater and hat for him to wear!

Everyone wrote "inspirational" messages on diapers for Andy and I to read as we're doing midnight changes...leave it to Anna & my sister to come up with this one!

Auntie Anna Rose...4 more months till margaritas!

Thank you Auntie Ann for such a great shower! And thank you to everyone else for coming and for our wonderful gifts. I promise those thank you notes will be in the mail soon...although I'm not quite as efficient as my sister :)
