Getting Close

33 weeks today and feeling big and ready for our sweet little Winnie to get here.  Things have been going pretty good.  I am staying super busy with Burke, Mamie's Poppy Plates and my new business with Rodan+Fields that I started back in April.  I like staying busy.  It is really keeping my mind off of the worry that all you mom's that have lost a baby know so well.

The fact that this little one is a girl has brought on a little anxiety.  She loves my right side and seems to move just like Mamie did.  I don't know how many times I have been talking to her or other people and called her Mamie.  That has been hard but I am sure that happens even if you have a child that is living and get pregnant with the same sex.

I saw Dr. Sellers last week and first off I have to say the Cornerstone Clinic is looking SO good.  They have finally decided to move out of the 80's. :)  I always spend a little more time up there than I think I should.  Barbara (Sellers nurse) and I have really bonded over the past 4 years and I always love sitting and catching up with her.  She has such a kind heart.  Dr. Sellers is the same way.  Taylor and I love how soft spoken and calm he is.  He keeps us calm :)  We think of them as family to us.

Everything looked great with Winnie.  I go back next week were they will do another ultrasound to measure and make sure all is well before they let me hop on a plane for the R+F convention in Dallas.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that I get to go.  He said if I am contracting at all he will want me to stay home.  I totally understand and will do what he wants me to but I sure want to be at convention.  It is going to be awesome I know!

Christmas 2012

Totally late on posting about Christmas.  The 7 days no power totally messed me up.  We had a great Christmas.  Santa brought Burke some fun toys and we had a great time with family.  After spending the morning at our house we headed over to my parents house to have Christmas with them.  Then we were off to Hot Springs to see Taylor's family.  It was a busy day but so nice to spend with loved ones.

Taylor took on his dad's role this Christmas of reading the story about the birth of Jesus.   

Best husband EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And then there was a meltdown.  Tired and hungry baby!

Next we were off to Hot Springs to see Taylor's family and all the cousins.

Our special brother-in-law Drew :)

Taylor's mom got him some fishing lures that his uncle out in California makes
