Thanksgiving Tomorrow

Blueberry is now full term. I am anxious for him or her to come out, but nervous about how I will handle labor. My pregnant body has become more awkward in the last week, and I find myself slowing down...

Nana and Papa are coming in tonight. Nana is making the entire Thanksgiving dinner which is really really nice (especially because I worked today and tomorrow and have never made Thanksgiving food. :) I just remembered we don't have enough glasses for everyone at the table... (plastic cups from a pizza place anyone?)

We already have the house decorated for Christmas. I have to work this weekend so we couldn't have done it then, and I am anxious for it to be ready for the Grave's arrival. They are coming to spend Christmas with us (which is a big sacrafice I think) and I hope it is a very fun a special one for them. I am currently feeding the baby some egg nog. Yum. I think Blueberry likes it. Joseph does not however, and compares it to drinking snot.

The nursery is coming along well. I chose a bright yellow color and am accenting it with black sheep and white furniture. (ok, i stole the idea from pottery barn kids...) I think it will be very cute. Mom reapolstered (sp?) the rocker I got and it is super cute. Nana is buying the pottery barn lamb bumper so I think it will turn out well.

I love the little Blueberry and am so excited to find out if it is a boy or a girl!!! Joseph and I feel like it is a girl, but everyone is dreaming about it and it's always a boy...

a post from dad

This is dad's first post on the blueberry blog. This is a note to all of our friends and family who are praying for us and helping us out with getting ready for this baby blessing to arrive. Thanks so much! It means so much to Abigail and I who were blessed with this gift very unexpectedly, leaving us feeling very unprepared. God has proven himself faithful to us through you and your ministering to us. We can't wait to hold this baby in our arms and introduce you to eachother. It will be a very special time indeed.
