Apple juice, Watermelon, and Mashed Potatoes...

I know I know I have been a horrible horrible blogger lately... well I am now back in action! life has been a little hectic, but none the less still fantastic! summer is upon us which means cookouts, friends, HEAT (yuck), and trips... Next week we travel down to Orlando for Phil's family's annual Disney trip. I am interested to see what this preggo will be able to do, seeing as how rides are no option, lets just pray for some cooler weather so I dont melt away. Our Niece Eliza will be celebrating her birthday while down there so we get to have breakfast with all the princesses! 2 weeks past that we will be hoping in the car to head to Nashville TN for my moms WEDDING, YAHOOOO.... then shortly after that on July 2nd--- I RETIRE! this is probably my most anticipated event.... goodbye working days hello life of the stay at home mama!! I cannot wait and hopefully my stay at home friend gets back to Charleston in time for our many hang outs and outings! as we get closer and closer to Gentry Emerson's arrival things are starting to come together. we got all her bedroom furniture this weekend. I can hardly believe she will be here in about 3 months... as I look back on this pregnancy it seems to have flown by, however I recall in the 1st and half of the second trimester as I was still puking my guts out that sure didnt seem like it was the case. either way I am ready to get her out! she still insists on keeping her head in my left rib cage- this is growing less and less comfortable, especially when she decides to move it around. She is going to be a pistol thats for sure! We pray that she will be healthy, and that if  not that the Lord gives us strength to lean on him and trust in the things we do not understand. I cannot wait to meet her, see her sweet little face, tiny little hands, and cute little watch her grow up to be the precious little girl that God has created her to be. As I think about this journey we are about to embark on I see so much good and I am in constant prayer that the Lord will empower us to be loving, nurturing and encouraging parents, that will not only lead by example, but en-stile values and a relationship with the Lord in our little one and hopefully soon after that little one's ...The realization that I am soon to be a mom is finally starting to sink in-- although I have considered myself a mom for the past 3 years to my 2 four legged babies, but Phil disagrees, constantly reminding me they are DOGS not KIDS... I personally see them as one in the same ;) 
We have yet to register-- I am just clueless as to what to register for, I mean when you register for your wedding you know your stuff- but baby registering is FOREIGN to me-- does anyone have any tips??? they will be gladly accepted!!!
 my recent cravings have been apple juice, watermelon and mashed potatoes ... not all together- yuck! but definitely separate... I cannot get enough of them! our next Dr appointment is tomorrow so more scoop to come on little miss Gentry then! :) 

Love you all, thanks for the continued thoughts and prayers- we appreciate them!!!


  1. I love juice, watermelon and mashed potatoes! Can't wait to be home and eat them with you (separately that is)!

    You two are going to be FANTASTIC parents! She has no clue how blessed she is to be entering the world with wonderful, loving God-fearing parents! She's probably squirming around inside with excitement! ;)

    Registering - I obviously don't have children (not even the furry ones :)), but after nannying two kids for three years (from birth to the age of 3) and registering with my sister for her twins, I can probably help you out some with this! I know the items they LOVE and the ones that sat in the box! :) It can be my first official act as your stay-at-home-friend!

    Okay, I'm starting to write my own blog! Misses, hugs and love!

  2. If you get stuck with anything registering wise give me a call. Just don't get help from ppl that work at the store.. They give you a huge list of things that you wont need! Just remember, its not going to turn out like you think! LOL I had all these ideas of what I would do during the day, what I needed, and how I would react to things.. All not the way I though it was going to go!
