wow look at that little elephant countdown ticker at the top of my blog... isn't it insanely close to the finish line?? ahhh!
yes, tomorrow is officially 1 week from our due date. abby grace is not showing any signs of being impatient (unfortunately) so we are thinking there is a good chance our due date will come and go... but oh how we would love for her to get antsy to meet us as we are antsy to meet her!
here are the practically finalized pics of our nursery...
last week (10.10.10) our church threw us a baby shower! it was such a blessing & we were very grateful for the loving kindness of our fellow church members. i just wanted to share a few pics that were taken at the shower...
us & the yummy cake!
trents looks are priceless. loved this gift... handknit blanket, booties, & cap. they actually match a knit cardigan my gma gave me when i was baby!
our dear friends luke & kendall hinton (due in jan.) & melissa farmer (bryan & their 1yr old jacob were at home). kendall & melissa helped record all of the gifts - a great help!
a pic of some of the ppl who showed up for the shower!
i had to explain why abby grace needs leg warmers :)
leg warmer, head bands, & i love mom shirt - what more could you want??
trent did a great job opening presents & announcing the giver & gift!
2 lovely ladies who helped host the shower & serve the cake!
i enjoyed anticipating trent's reactions :)
a cute elephant sleepsack & adorable hamper!
a couple shots i took when we got home & laid out the gifts!
felt like christmas morn :)
cute baby on the cake
thanks to all who came to the baby shower! we truly give thanks to the Lord that you would express such generosity & love towards us & our daughter!
side note... 36 weeks today & 28 days to go until the due date! wow!
dad had a business trip in chicago 2 weeks ago so mom decided to fly with him & get dropped off in louisville while he was in chicago - yay! she was here from sunday-thursday and then dad joined us from thursday-saturday. it was such a joy to have them visit!! mom & i were able to see abby grace and do some shopping & resting.

mom & i couldn't resist getting this cute doll from pottery barn kids! primarily b/c her name is "Abby". so Abby doll has helped trent learn a little bit about changing diapers. when Abby Grace is older, she will have her own Abby doll :)
we picked up dad from the airport and went to his favorite lunch place - Brendan's Pub in St Matthews.
on their last full day here, we took mom & dad to Huber Farms! it was so much fun! we had never been there before and it was a gorgeous day for picking pumpkins & apples!
we ate at the restaurant for lunch first - and we were grateful to do some walking around afterwards bc lunch was quite a huge southern feast!
yay i am about to pick pumpkins!
dad & the pumpkins we chose!
wondering how abby grace's little pumpkin compares to her actual size
our pumpkins! we already had a tall pumpkin at home so we got a short round pumpkin with twisted top & little pumpkin for abby grace. so we have a nice pumpkin family on our front porch :)
mom & dad!
picked delicious apples!
made an apple crisp later that day - fresh apples taste amazing!!
mom picking apples!
all of us @ huber farms - we had such a great time!
(mom & i also worked a lot on our nursery so updated nursery pics soon to come...)
