I'm back!

Over a year has gone by since my last blog post.  It is shameful!  I still enjoy reading everyone else's blogs, but I just have been lazy when it comes to blogging.  With baby Abby due in just 45 days, I figured now would be a good time to start back.  I want to be able to journal her life with pictures and share what is going on with friends and family that we don't get to see as often.  

We are hurriedly making final preparations for her arrival just in case she decides to come a little early.  The nursery walls are painted, the baby furniture is all here, her bathroom is currently getting remodeled, but we still have to hang curtains and hang wall decor.  I'll post pictures as soon as her nursery is complete! 

We have had 2 showers for Abby over the past 2 weekends. I have decided that being a mother-to-be is even more fun than being a bride!  It is so much fun to be showered with things for her!  She has yet to take her first breath and is already SPOILED ROTTEN!  

Our first shower was in Birmingham and was hosted by some of my best friends from high school and college.  It was so much fun to spend the afternoon with these girls.  

The sweet hostesses (we missed Alana, Taylor, and Mary Neal)

It has been so much fun to be pregnant with so many close friends and to be able to experience this next stage together!  Erin is due June 2nd, I'm due April 18th, Jenny is due May 12th, and Lindsay is due May 2nd.  That is 4 babies within 6 weeks!!!!!

Me (and Abby) with both of her grandmothers and one of her great-grandmothers!

My sister, Sarah, did these farm animal watercolors for Abby's nursery.  They are absolutely beautiful and will hang over her crib. They will be a keepsake that we will cherish forever!

This past Saturday, some of our dearest couple friends hosted a baby shower for us at Acre in Auburn.  It was so much fun!  This group of friends originated because each of the guys was at some point an Auburn firefighter, but we have so much more in common than that!  These couples love the Lord and love each other so well.  It has been so much fun to go on beach trips, and to celebrate weddings and babies with this group over the past 7 years that I have known them. Most recently this group has rallied around each other and prayed for each other through some hard times!   These friends truly are such a blessing from God.

Abby will be the 12th baby girl from this group...and there is ONE boy on the way!  Adam and Adrianne will have the only baby boy in the whole group any day now!  We are all convinced that the fighting fire must affect the ability to have sons...(and that is perfectly fine with me!)  But I do have a feeling that these little girls will all be competing for Knox Harris's affection one day!
