Hello, Everyone!!! I'm finally writing again....I know I've been really bad about it. Anyway, no exciting baby news yet, we're still waiting. My due date is on Saturday, but everyone knows first time moms usually go over by at least a week, so we'll see. I am going to avoid getting induced if at all possible. I have another doctor's appointment tomorrow, so hopefully everything goes well there. At my appointment last week the doctor said I'm fully effaced so now we're just waiting for me to dilate. I keep thinking "open" thoughts. =0)

Well, the holidays were a lot of fun. Thanksgiving is always good, I love turkey & all the mashed potatoes. December always seems to be a blur of shopping, parties, dinners & what not. Christmas was great, I got everything I asked for. I just asked for baby stuff and everyone cooperated, which was great! I'm thinking we have nearly everything we need, but I guess we won't know for sure until we actually have the baby & find out all the things we forgot. Matt's mom has been shopping like crazy the last few weeks. It seems we get a new package every other day with new baby stuff in it, it's a lot of fun. Matt finally finished painting the baby's room yesterday so I can't wait to get home today & start setting up the nursery....finally!!! Yeah!! I've been stressing out about it for a while now, so it will be great to finally get it done. Poor Matt, he was probably so sick of me bugging him about it, but it's not like I could do it myself, since the fumes are bad for the baby. Anyway, it's done now, and I'm so glad.

We got a dog the week before Christmas. He's such a nice dog, I can't wait until I can actually get out & play with him. His name is Knight. He's an Australian Shepherd/Lab mix. He's 1 1/2 years old, we got him for free off of The people who had him before had to get rid of him because the neighbors were threatening to shoot him because he kept chasing their cows & horses. He just wanted to herd them. Anyway, he seems happy, he has a lot of room to run around in our backyard, but we do have to keep him on a chain or he jumps the fence & runs amuck in the neighborhood.

Other than that I guess there's not really anymore news. We're just patiently waiting for the baby to come out. =0) I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas & that we all have a great year!!!
